RE: attack on Sikh temple

"We cannot tolerate this hatred."

Umm. No. We cannot tolerate this behavior. Big difference.

More later.

But the rabid hatred is what's causing the behavior.

Yes, but it is the behavior that can be controlled. We can try to affect people's attitudes, but hatred is often not based in reason, and so that has limited effect.

You can get a man who hates not to do anything with his hatred. That is more achievable than trying to play thought-police.

Apparently not, in some circumstances. I realize that this "lone gunman" is the aberration, not the rule. However, things are escalating.

There's been a case recently of a gentleman bringing a bag of guns to see Batman, as a reflection of the shooter in Colorado. There will be more fallout from the Sikh shootings.

Good point. Thank you for the reminder.

hmm, you're right. I hadn't noticed the difference until you pointed it out. Thank you.
