Hate

Ugh....I am just sick over some things that have taken place over the last few days. Literally sick to my stomach!

First, sweet Hopsy! Due to someone sending her some rather unsettling comments, she had to go private and stop blogging. All because someone had nothing else to do but spread hateful comments for kicks. It's just gross that someone would take such time and effort to send a message of hate. If you don't dig someone, don't read their blog. It's not like anyone is making you read blogs. There are gazillions of other blogs out there- read those instead. Or the newspaper. Those are dying in the vine, give them a little business. Or a book. Libraries are full of 'em and it's free. But seriously, spreading negativity is not going to make you feel better in the end. It's just going to creep everyone else out. Hopsy is not going to stop living her cute, Lilly-loving life because of some rude people. Here's hoping her blog break is short. I miss her!!

Second, the state of California is on my $&!% list. First you give people rights, doing the right thing. Because equality is great. Then you take them away. And now you seal it up, with all the hate of Satan. There is absolutely nothing resembling Jesus or Christianity or love in bragging about hatred in the name of supposed Christianity. It is pure hatred. And grosses me out. Not to mention....we supposedly have the freedom of religion here.....right? What's next? Will I lose my rights as a female. Or will our President have to lose his job due to his skin color? After all, the argument against those rights was the same hate-filled in the name of Jesus crapola that is shouted today against gay rights.

What the heck is wrong with people?! Don't let the hate win, peaches! I would have been a terrible hippie- I think the clothes are dreadful and drugs are dumb. But the "spread love and not hate" sentiment rings true still today.

And for crying out loud, if you don't like someone (for whatever reason), don't read their blog. Or go to their wedding. Or invite them over to grill chicken. Or go on a joint family vacation. Or accept them as a Facebook friend. But all this hate just brings everyone down, including you.

Clearly I'm still very upset!!

AMEN!!!!!

Thanks for clearing it up about Hopsy. I already miss her.

And a reminder to everyone of the old adage: "If you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all."

I could not agree with you more!

I am missing Hopsy so much already! It is so pathetic that there are people out there who have nothing better to do than to write nasty comments on other people's blogs. Get a life! I hope the Hopsy hiatus is not a long one!

AMEN to the Hopsy situation and DOUBLE AMEN to the CA - Prop 8 situation.

Gracie Beth said...

I miss Hopsy as well that is so unfortunate about the negative comments. That is why I do not and will not ever allow anonymous comments on my blog.

I missed all the Hopsy drama...poor thing! Here's hoping she comes back soon.

Also very disappointed in Prop 8 in general.

Go sister!

You sum it up so well!

I didn't know Hopsy went private! I have her on a feed reader so I didn't see the message. That's too bad. I love her blog.

Miss Janice said...

I totally agree about Hopsy...miss her blog!

Preppy Mama said...

I couldn't have said it better! As for the blogs, I purposely set my comments to be filtered through me first so I don't give "haters" an audience. I am so upset that Hopsy stopped blogging!

Jennifer said...

Oh, I didn't know that happened to Hopsy. I am too sad about this! She was one of my favorite daily reads!

Torch Lake Prep said...

I agree on the love not hate and I would be a bad "hippie" too. Have you ever read any Tolle -- A New Earth ?? It may help.

Poor HOpsy. we also lost Bergdorf Blondes because someone did the same thing. so not nice. We miss them both - thank you for shedding some light on Hopsy's plight. LOve your blog!

Her Preppiness said...

Amen to all of your comments.

Dugout Daisy said...

I'm horrified that my state would do something like this... where is the love people?!

adozeneggs said...

Oh no! Hopsy went private??
I missed the whole thing.
As for prop 8, I just don't know why these nut jobs are so effing worried about it. Let people have the "freedom" that we're all entitled too.
You'd think with the crap going on in this country we'd be worried about more important issues.
Just let the gays get married, wrap things up in the Middle East, get our troops home and work on the economy.
Jeez.

I can't believe that happened to Hopsy - I miss her and her joyful outlook on life

Beach Girl said...

I saw Hopsy went private and was sick. I just loved reading her blog(yours as well:)!) It's sad people can't be quiet instead of being rude and nasty. I hope Hopsy knows how much she is missed!

Amen!!!
Sometimes I just want to say GROW UP GIRLS! Some people never mature beyond high school.
