The Bilerico Project discusses the problem with confronting hate with more hate and how there is a better way.
Hmm... seems like we have heard that before:
Hate is hate no matter whose side it's coming from. In fact, I can not see the love from "our side" from this NOM video as their t-shirts ask. Here is a video that the anti-gay group NOM produced. Here's how we fell into their trap.
When we go to anti-gay NOM events and scream in their faces we harm all of us! I sure as heck don't like it when "they" scream in my face. Nor would I want "them" blocking our presentations. We need to respect their free speech rights and be peaceful examples of love.
I ask that you deeply consider what it means to be a love warrior. To me it means not only standing up for love, but standing with love in my heart as Dr. King, Ghandi, and Harvey would have us do.
It sounds crazy, but it's exhilarating! Be love, there is nothing more powerful. A real love warrior leads from the heart! But sadly, I have had the experience of our own people, angry beyond measure, scream in my face too for being peaceful or asking them to choose to be peaceful, elegant, calm, respectful, unmovable, determined, confident, but not raging militants. That's what Ghandi did and that's what Dr. King did and that's what changes the world. You are either your message of love or you are not and that's what will hurt or help your family
