#TuesdayThoughts: Only be a jerk for justice

Standard

I’ve been thinking about how many people seem to have been waiting for the opportunity to be terrible, to treat other people as badly as they possibly can, and to demand no consequences for it.

It’s very odd.

And yet there they are, like they’ve been waiting for permission all this time. It’s always been there, this seething nastiness, just under the surface.

And they’re the same people who think of themselves as “good people,” insert a religious adjective in there too. As though claiming a religion is enough to give a person morality.

I think they’ve got far less morality than someone who doesn’t talk about it religious terms, because they seem to think the assertion of a religious affiliation is a substitution for actual morality.

It is not.

I don’t know what will happen with those people after trump is gone, whether they’ll slither back under their rocks, their tails between their legs, and pretend they never did anything of the kind.

I guess we’ll see. You have a great Tuesday and don’t be a jerk for the sake of being a jerk. If you’re going to be a jerk, be a jerk for justice.
