EP 008 - But ________ (with Terry Weaver)

In this week's episode, DJ has a discussion with Terry Weaver inspired by discussions around former President Bush being seen with Ellen Degeneres. You can read his blog post here: http://terryweaver.com/the-asterisk-is-everywhere/

DJ and Terry talk about how our culture is becoming toxic with ways we seek division rather than unity. We hear things like, "Yeah, Ellen but George Bush _____" typically followed by rhetoric... sometimes rhetoric that is obviously untrue based on what is happening.

Terry wonders - what ever happened to wishing the best for our fellow human beings? Suddenly our culture seems to hope for failure and find ways to divide.

There are quite a few lessons in this episode - but the bottom line is that if we can't wish the best for people; we can't leave the world any better. While sometimes we feel we must 'resist' things that are happening that are negative - if all we can do is respond with hate or hateful accusations of someone's character... we gain nothing and only serve to alienate.
