Is Hate Increasing?

Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. ~Martin Luther King Jr. Hate seems to be on the rise in our world. It seems to be growing exponentially, spewing out of human vessels in a heap of vomit onto fellow vessels. It’s a stench […]
