Restoring Love Vs. Embodying Hate

An estimated 65,000 people attended Glenn Beck's Restoring Love event in Dallas Cowboys Stadium yesterday with a simple, yet powerful message of love. Love of God, love of country, love of service, love of our fellow human beings regardless of our differences.

Meanwhile, gay marriage supporters (not all, mind you, but a number of them) are spreading a message of hate against Chik-Fil-A. And why? Because the president of the company, Dan Cathy, said he and his company believe in "the biblical definition of the family unit" and gives money to causes that reflect that view.

Humans are emotional creatures without question. It's what we do with those emotions that matter.

With love, we can help people in need. With hate, we can destroy people, including ourselves.

With love, we can bring peace to the world. With hate, we can bring war.

With love, we can fix problems. With hate, they fester and get worse.

With love, we can accomplish almost anything. With hate, we accomplish nothing.

Which emotion do you serve?
