  •  Too many people (5+ / 0-)

    get too much warped pleasure out of punishing people because they are the "wrong" sexual orientation (i.e., anything other than dogmatically heterosexual), they have the "wrong" religious beliefs (or...gasp! religious beliefs at all), the "wrong" skin color, etc.

    •  I believe that "warped pleasure" (3+ / 0-)

      most often is manifested in self-righteousness- the ever-popular blowing out of another's candle to make your own seem brighter.
      It's an all-too-common character flaw that exposes the person so flawed as being of low self-esteem, mean demeanor and/or of retarded emotional growth.

      Some people just have to have a "lesser-than" group to bolster their self-worth. It's pitiful, and they'd know it if they were self-aware.

      Peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but a means by which we arrive at that goal. - Martin Luther King, Jr.
