Meeting hate with hate is a net negative

Over the past few days I've seen one of my favorite conservative pages on Facebook get progressively more and more hateful towards liberals and then defend it saying "we can't afford to be nice anymore! If you don't like that, then you're against us!"

I don't buy that, Why does hate have to be met with hate to preserve our God given rights? How are we any better than them if we met their hate with hate of our own. This is not a union, this is a poo slinging fight. I've said it before and I'll say it again: if we meet the liberal's intolerance and hate with some of our own, we're no better fit to lead this country back to greatness than they are.

This country is called the UNITED Stated of America, and boy we couldn't be further from that. yes, it's still there by name, but in practice? No. Just,...just no.

If the liberals want to be hateful jerks, let them. Let them show the world their hateful tactics. Meanwhile let's show the world our compassion. let's show the world our charitable attitudes. There's no need to be hateful back at them. Does this mean let them walk all over you? No. But don't be hateful just to be hateful. It's unjust.

Pray. Listen. Retort politely. There's no need to be automatically hateful. If you do, you're no better than the people you're trying to discredit.

Remember, God's will will be done regardless of what we want. Remember also that God only helps those that help themselves. If you're hateful, you're not helping anyone, especially yourself.

In short, just because they're hateful, doesn't mean you have to be, despite popular opinion.
