The writer of Revelation saw Rome as the Seven Headed Dragon, and in fact, Satan. There was no greater monster to him than Rome. The sad fact today is that many of us still follow the example of allowing our anger to gradually remove all of the attributes of humanity from those we hate, eventually transforming them into irredeemable monsters. And of course, we can more easily kill monsters without remorse.
Truer words a hard to come by! Think of this as the opposite of giving your dog a good solid name, like Humphrey. We then further humanize the pet and it becomes our closest relative. We talk to our pets like they are people. We give them human emotions, fears, and foibles that are clearly human and not a dog (especially true for some breeds).
This humanization of our pets is so compelling that in the greatest downturn since the depression we are actual increasing our spending on our pets for everything from food to extending their lives with medicines, operation, and even chemotherapy.
So, see how powerful the humanizing of a pet is? Imagine how powerful it is to call the President a monster, a Nazi, or the Antichrist.
Speaking of the good old Nazi, did you know that they were doing the same things as the Republicans are with Democrats? Yep, dehumanizing. The Democrats are evil, etc. Soon the shooting will begin and we are off on to the predicted Apocalypse where the seven heads are seven Democratic states and the ten will be powerful Democrats. Of course the whore ridding the beast will be the President.
Hatred is just that easy. Of course, that's why you are reading this, we need to know when a bunch of hate mongers are about to end the world so that we can hunker down and wait for the Republicans to start hatting themselves.
