Stop breeding hate

All too often we hear of or see on television something that fills us with revulsion. It might be "ethnic cleansing," a terrorist bombing, or the story of a murdered child. I consider myself a mild, easygoing person, but in such cases I have often felt fully justified in hating the perpetrators.

Along with these thoughts, though, there has been the niggling feeling that I should know better. Ever since I started going to a Sunday School, I have known these two important facts: God is everywhere and God is Love. These two facts conflict 100 percent with my "fully justified" reactions. They also appear to conflict 100 percent with the appalling evidence on my television screen. Yet, I know from experience these spiritual facts are true.
