Can We Make 2020 the Year of Tolerance?
Change won’t happen unless you and I stand up for what is right and demand that our beliefs—whatever they may be—are respected as they should be.
CinemaBlend’s Heidi Venable Is a “Fan” of Hate
Seen through a filter of smiling faces and rose-colored glasses, Remini’s unmitigated, unrelenting crusade of lies against a religion whose only crime, apparently, was to try to help her, becomes something approaching beatific.

CounterPunch Deals the Gateway Drug to Bigotry
Reducing hundreds of thousands of sincere individuals to a sneering allusion at the end of a snide put-down is not journalism, nor is it even writing. It’s propaganda, pure and simple.

Freedom of Speech Versus the Freedom to Lie
Freedom of speech is a precious gift bequeathed to us by our Founding Fathers. Anti-Scientologists routinely abuse that right. I could now proclaim that even though I detest what the haters say about my church, I will defend their right to say it. But I won’t. It would be a lie. Why on earth would I want to defend the abuse of this precious right by for-profit hatemongers?

How 9/11 Brought Religions Together as the World Fell Apart
Since that time, nearly 140,000 other individuals have been the targets of hate crime in the United States. 140,000, many losing their lives, many others their livelihoods, their family members, and whatever hope and color their existence possessed prior to the crime—all of them, in a very real sense, victims of 9/11.

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. The opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.” - Elie Wiesel
Nick Schager’s Brand of Clickbait Hate
It’s an old trick. Entice your reader with a juicy headline that may or may not (usually not) have anything to do with the actual content and get that all-important 15 seconds of attention. “ Is Sex Really Necessary?” “ Image Of Elvis’ Face Photographed By Mars Rover .” That sort of thing.
Tony Ortega—Anti-Scientology Puppet with a Blog
Ortega claims to work under the umbrella of journalism. In fact, he’s an internet tabloid blogger at the hire of anti-Scientologists, and he writes what his clients order. Since 2013, Ortega has been in the service of virulent anti-Scientologist Leah Remini and her partner, Mike Rinder—both expelled from the Church for antisocial and criminal conduct, respectively, and both of whom turned to making a living off their vendetta against the Church and its leader.

Tony Ortega—The Troll and His Prison of Hate
The story reads like a sordid crime novel, with Ortega as willing accomplice, motivated by greed and devoid of human decency. It might be entertaining, were it not for the real-life victims of his complacency and collusion—children sold on Backpage as sex slaves, victims of sexual violence, physical and psychological abuse, and murder—the details of which are well-documented.
