Forgive me, it is late and I haven't read all the posts since my last, but I did read awediot's post after mine. I will address it in this way.
I see where you are coming from and I sense, forgive me if I am wrong, but a sense of guilt.
Non-violence is not an easy path. The first principles tells us that it is a way of life for couregous people, not cowards. What I will add to that is that it is a jounrney. I don't know if I will ever be complete non-violelence. I don't know if I will ever understand what that means, but I will try. I hope that you will as well.
What I also know is that we as gays and lesbians will never get ehat is is we want until we are as non-violent to our adversaries. Including bush. Regardless of what he has done, reagardless of what he will do. Repsonding with any sort of violence will not get is what we seek. I will only spread more of the same. We must ignore and take it as redemptive suffering much like our brothers and sisters being arrested on the Ride.
There could be a million conversations about what is violence, but deep in your heart, you already know the answer to what violence is and I hope and pray we reject it. Posting the picture of bush in his weaker moments in his past was not a nice thing to do. It is done. Let it be said that regardless of what others think, and forgive me again if you all find me wrong, I felt that as an attack on him. I found it to be violence as i see it in the light of the princicples of non-violence. Even if you disagree that that was violence. I hope you will agree there is a better way than making jokes of him or having a laaugh at his exspense.
That is all I can say tonight.
