Yes, people who are brought up under certain circumstances will tend to do the same. It goes for religion, life style, outlook on a number of issues. But some over come the way they were taught. Some for the better, some for the worse.<quoted text>
I'm not looking for Utopia. I'm working for justice and righteousness, unlike the haters who wish to deny the humanity of people who look different than themselves. Sadly, you were "carefully taught to hate and fear." Education is the answer.
You still "hate all the people your relatives hate"?
Education is the answer.
I have a friend who has twin sons. One is a good citizen while the other is in prison for life for murder.
I have seven brothers and sisters and none of us has been convicted or served more than a few days in jail. A couple of us are Conservatives, most are in the middle and one is a pot-smoking, atheist, flaming Libtard.
I can visit and stay off of touchy subject but he can not. And he thinks anyone who did not vote for Obama is a racist.
Oh, in 2002 I went to his wedding. The officiator could not evoke God or Jesus but he did talk about a high being. And my brother's best man is a lesbian. Yep, I took my 11 year old granddaughter to the wedding and it was one of those don't ask, don't tell moments.
There was also two other lesbian couples and one gay couple but I did not make one remark about anything. When she was 15 y/o we sat down and had a talk about the wedding and she said she had figured it out.
Oh, his best man danced with the Elvis impersonator and they sang together and since she is an actress she did real well.
