Posted before the 2012 massacres in an Aurora CO theatre and Sikh Temple of Wisconsin:

"guns kill" messge

True. Guns don't kill people.
It is other people who kill people.
To be specific, it is people with guns who kill people.
So, the question becomes: how do we separate guns from people who want to kill others?

Love, compassion and forgiveness:

Love. compassion, forgiveness message

Unfortunately, as a result of different interpretations of passages in their holy books, many faith groups teach an overwhelming amount of hatred, lack of compassion, and lack of forgiveness. Their favorite targets seem to be women and sexual minorities.

If you are a member of a faith group, please review your group's teachings for misinformation, disinformation, hatred, insensitivity, lack of compassion, misinterpretation of your holy book(s), sexism, homophobia, transphobia, etc. Then, please consider complaining, exposing, and trying to reform such bigotry. Whether today's youth remain dedicated to your faith group, or leave in disgust, depends in part on your actions.

Sorry for the lecture. I couldn't resist.
