Politics, Religion and Hate

Politics always confuses me. I’m always up for a good argument, but it seems like anytime people are arguing over politics, it never ends well. That’s strange to me. It’s not like people can even agree to disagree.

I have a friend from school who is a staunch atheist and we’ve had some deep conversations over social media, but at the end of every conversation, neither of us are uncomfortable. Neither of us hate each other. In fact, I really like this guy. Do we agree on big issues? Nope. We’re not even close most of the time. But I still love the guy and I hope he would say the same thing about me.

One of the things I think is dividing our country is the media. One side spews hate toward the other. The other side spews it back. It’s pretty gross and I wonder if secretly our nation’s enemies are seeing this hatred and smiling. You may not like our president. You may have not liked our previous president. Either way, there’s no need for hatred.

The video below was just posted and is really strange. Hank Williams Jr, who oddly enough, isn’t in the political business at all, compared President Obama to Adolf Hitler. Again, you may not like the president – but would you compare him to Hitler? See where I’m going?

I’m singling out FoxNews here, but watch the clip below and tell me this isn’t hatred.

Maybe I’m the only person who thinks this is weird, so please jump in and tell me what you think.
