Hate Speech?

Sue’s Views
The whole ‘hate speech’ debacle is something we are going to hear a lot more about in days to come. When asked for a definition ….. we’re told ‘I’ll know it when I hear it!’ In other words ….. ‘If you say something I disagree with or something that offends me ….. you can be prosecuted for being an extremist.’ I definitely don’t recommend offending people but there’s a big difference between offensive language and speaking the truth in love! Just because I disagree with someone doesn’t mean I hate them. I remember threatening to leave home as a 6 year old because my parents wouldn’t allow me to stay up late. I thought they hated me! Sometimes there is a fine line between love and hate! As long as we keep love as our focus it will prevail!
