For what it's worth Phat, I don't think you hate. I think those accusations are rather cruel. You're just incredibly misguided and rather lost.
Well, yes, exactly. Phat is unable to recognize when he's been influenced to pass on other people's hate. You're probably right that he isn't experiencing hate himself when he expresses extreme insensitivity (I'm being kind) about vulnerable people in desperate situations, but he *does* do it over and over and over again, and at some point one has to stop making up excuses for him and call him on it. He's an adult and should be able to figure these things out.
In other news but related to Phat, gold's been going up and is near all time highs. Buy now while civilization still survives.

A Word About Mike Johnson
This seemed the most appropriate place for this because it characterizes a common behavior of the religious. This is from Opinion | I Grew Up in Mike Johnson’s District, Where Kindness Can Mask Cruelty - The New York Times:
About Mike Johnson:
He is from a part of the country where your nemesis will smile at you and promise to pray for you, where people will quickly submit that they “love the sinner but hate the sin,” where one hand can hold a Bible while the other holds a shackle. He is from a place where people use religion to brand their hatred as love so that they act on it cheerfully and without guilt.
