Bullying Is What It Is

January 29, 2011

Targeting and singling out people who aren’t supportive of LGBT people is no better than targeting and singling out LGBT people.

~Phantom-notes on Tumblr.

A friend of mine posted that on her Lesbian-oriented LGBT blog on Tumblr. I completely agree. We can’t attack hate with hate. Martin Luther King, Jr. says in a speech:

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction…. The chain reaction of evil—hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars—must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of
annihilation.

Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength To Love, 1963

Never thought that his speeches could be powerful for any equality injustice, did you?
