Beware of what we condemn the most!


It is an interesting aspect of us human species. The biggest rant in someone's life is usually their biggest secret.

I don't even have to get into Elliott Spitzer, ex-Governor of New York - he who condemned prostitution rings and money laundering crimes, ad nauseum.

And now we have Sally Kernwho condemned gays in the most appalling spiel of lies and hate. She is a government official and is a state representative of Oklahoma. It turns out she has a gay son. Wonder what he thinks of Mama's virulent spew.

I think of Mark Foley, a member of the committee to protect underaged pages from predators. Himself a predator.

I think of "Wide Stance" Larry Craig, proudly anti-gay legislation. Himself, well--

I think of Conrad Black, a bragging self-made man, anti-welfare state, now living in taxpayer supported jail.

And the New Jersey Governor James McGreevey who angrily opposed the proposed gay rights marriage legislation. Himself now an outed gay man. And ex-governor.

And let's not forget Hitler with all that jewish blood inside him.

And on.

Too many to think about.
Listen closely the next time you hear somebody yell in hatred from any kind of podium.....

  1. I wonder, is it, perhaps, those things we know and hate about ourselves that make us despise others with similar traits? Is the world truly a mirror for each of us?

  2. I truly believe it is, RJA. I think that is why we have to embrace our broken parts with love and compassion.

  3. That's a classic, isn't it, someone raging against something they're unconsciously attracted to - or it's actually a trait of their own. The number of times politicians have initiated draconian measures against gays only to reveal themselves as gay later on. But then the bottomless depths of political hypocrisy never cease to amaze me.

  4. I wonder if they know they're doing it, or if their brains have separate compartments which just do not interact.

    I also wonder if this means that Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins (wash my mouth out) are closet religious nuts and astrologers? ;-)

    Or all the Americans crying "racist" all over the place just now are actually racist themselves.

    Or a monumental denial of who they really are?
    It is so disturbing that these are often the people in positions of authority.

    I remember the old saying "If you spot it, you got it" so what you are saying is more than likely true.

Some of you are having trouble, I've removed captcha and verification so we'll see how that goes. My apologies. Blogger is putting up far too many roadblocks. Thanks for the emails alerting me.
