“I NEVER LEARNED”

I never learned to hate gays.
I never learned to hate Muslims.
I never learned to hate conservatives.
I never learned to hate gun owners.
I learned to hate intolerant assholes.
And I learned that they
are without exception, everywhere.
But they are always outnumbered
by the people who make you change
your mind
about who is worth loving,
in-spite of the assholes.
