BYB Sunday - Acceptance

Today my blessing is the acceptance, and tolerance of all peoples, beliefs, and cultures that my parents instilled in us. I was reminded of this yesterday when reading Matthew's blog entry on a blogger who decided to use the Thursday Thirteen meme to push their own anti-Muslim agenda. I came across this blogger weeks ago with a similar meme making fun of Muslim names, and how the average American does not name their baby Mohamed according to some highly questionable statistics they dragged up. No, sadly I'm not kidding.

My niece, her husband, and their daughter are Muslim, and you can bet this blogger offends me. And oh yes, am I ever grateful for Canadian anti-hate laws a side blessing I suppose....the real blessing though is acceptance.

My acceptance even extends to this blogger, and includes pity for his obvious hate filled world. Thanks to the wisdom and blessing of my Mom and Dad I don't have to share it. :D

I am aware of this blogger, too, Sue. It's a sad thing to see someone so invested in spreading hatred. His way of doing business is scary, too.

Like you, I'm grateful I can see it for what it is.

I am also grateful he is the only TTer I have come across who is full of hate. Isn't it remarkable how many people focus on what they love, what they like, what the believe in that is good?

Wonderful post and one of my blessings as well.

It is so unhealthy to surround yourself with such hate and I avoid people like that. Like vampires they drain us of our own positive energy.

Best thing is to send them a blessing and move on.

Thanks for keeping the dream alive.

And thank you for being YOU. The world needs a few more just the same as you. I am late but finally got here to read your blessing. I have one too if you want to amble over and peek at it.

What a wonderful message of acceptance and tolerance! I’m unaware of this blogger and the message of ‘hate’ … however, I believe that when we remember that we’re all one (in the sense that we share many things in common as humans even as we’re unique and differ) … solutions to problems rise to awareness and we all benefit.
Hugs and blessings,
