2. "Hate cannot drive out hate; Only love can do that" --MLK

Why do we have to keep on learning the same lesson?

4. Some of us on DU put up with a lot of flak over using the term "self-loathing"

to describe some probable factors that drove Mateen to murder, even though hints of this was emerging, and the ISIS rationale had holes in it.

5. I've been saying this from the beginning.

He got his self loathing from his father. Of course his father will never admit that.

Look at my sig line. It applies to all kinds of hate...homophobia, racism, bigotry and sexism. It's the adults who are teaching their children to hate, just like they were taught by their parents. We need to catch the kids when they are young enough and stop this...somehow in schools. Integration helps, but the home atmosphere can be so toxic that even growing up with these people who they target is not enough. We need to teach them to not buy into the hatred their parents push on them.

But...when that hatred is aimed at their own child (whether or not they know it)...how does a child deal with that?

6. There were several people who said they wouldn't believe

he was gay until a former lover came forward. Here's the evidence they demanded to satisfy them.

7. Huge kick and rec.

To often, the fundamentalist versions of patriarchal religions teach hate, both of self and others. It always leads to violence and tragedy. I keep longing for the day when people see these religions for the scam that they really are. It's all about fleecing people for money and taking authority over people's lives. More of us need to wake up and reject this kind of nastiness. It is long past time for bigotry and hate to be starved out of people's minds and hearts so that this kind of violence can be buried with the dishonor that it richly deserves. Don't ignore it when bigotry and hate are expressed. Speak up in support of change for the better.
