So I just watched the BBC documentary "The Most Hated Family in America" and am moving on to the sequel "America’s Most Hated Family in Crisis". The documentaries explore the infamous Westboro Baptist Church. I had obviously heard about them a lot (they even came to protest against my university) but I had yet to watch the documentaries. A lot of the scenes are surreal. It scares me to see such hate in this world. Thoughts anyone?
Haven’t seen the documentaries but I’ll definitely look into them.
A lot of times I’ll see or read about things and think ‘how is it even possible for someone to be that evil/cold/ignorant etc.?’ and after the sick feeling passes it makes me really appreciate what’s truly good in life.
In order for something completely blissful/perfect/’good’ to exist there must be something on the opposite end of the spectrum. There is no good without bad. There is no hope without despair, no hot without cold, no light without darkness etc etc.
Fantastic perspective on this Jordan, I completely agree with the yin/yang of life but my God, these people really take the cake. Protesting dead soldiers funerals with their children….the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I have to believe they think they’re doing right what everyone is doing wrong, why else would they go through the trouble? I’d like to hear what Sam Harris has to say about them
