John McCain and Sarah Palin have been urging people at their rallies to participate in near-violent hate speech.
Why do these so-called Christians always revert to hate and anger? Isn’t Jesus all about peace and love — love they neighbor, turn the other cheek, feed the hungry, heal the sick… It makes me sick to my stomach to see that hate boiling behind their eyes. These mobs are not Christians, because it takes more than going to church and praying for your football team to win to be a Christian. Christianity is about deeds more so than words.
I don’t sense that the energy of this election is conducive to hate. I have the feeling that hope is a better message, I know that Barack represents a more thoughtful, presidential leader. McCain/Palin are not acting presidential at all. All they are doing is tearing the country apart — even more so than George W. Bush did.
