About halfway through this video, I started crying. Watching Rich (who is gay, if you did not figure that out) sit amongst the deluge of hatred was truly profound. It was like watching the stuff be said to his face. Hearing someone talk about how their “morals” give them the right to tell people who they can love and to take rights away from people makes me want to shake them and tell them how fucked up their morals really are.
Morals are supposed to be things that you hold true that help you be a good person and do what is right. Discriminating against people, putting people down, and investing so much energy into hating other people will never make you morally upstanding. It makes you an ignorant, hurtful fuck.
“Tell me, do you really think you go to hell for having loved?
Tell me, enough of thinking everything that you’ve done is good
I really need to know, after soaking the body of Jesus Christ in blood
I’m so tired of America”
-Rufus Wainwright, Going to A Town
