“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
The past 45 days has seen several shootings in places of worship. My heart hurts and I've had enough. It's time to speak up and say the words screaming from my spirit.
STOP! Stop with the hate. Stop with the violence. Stop violating someone's holy sanctuary. Just stop!
I don't care what these people's issues are with a particular religion or group of people. I don't care what religion or belief someone practices. A church, mosque, temple or any other place of worship is a holy place. Hate isn't allowed when a group of people worship.
Are we in a holy war? Maybe. Do we want that as human beings? NO!
People have been warring with each other over religion since the dawn of time. It's not right and it get us nowhere. Religious leaders spouting hate from their pulpits are not promoting anything except hate.
Where is the love?
Read the above quote and ask yourself where's the love. It's been proven time and again hate can't eliminate hate, only increase it. Love is the answer. Love has always been the answer.
Spread love and Light.
