Then, in the past few days, I was personally accused of being a hypocrite because as a liberal (I must be liberal if I support QQLBGT folks, right?), I preach tolerance and now I'm not being tolerant. So let's be clear. I don't tolerate hate or abuse in any form. It's the action I am against, not the belief nor the individual. The truth is, I can't control how others feel or think (thank goodness). But I can influence the energies I allow in my sphere. So if not tolerating hate makes me a hypocrite, so be it. That label sits as easily as any other because it's yours, not mine.
Guess what else? I love Duck Dynasty. I love that they end every episode with a prayer and that they eat and pray as a family. I don't choose that lifestyle but I love it. I guess that's another way I'm a hypocrite.
