Learned

Posted By on September 1, 2014

Two things I’ve been reminded of lately (or two realities I’ve been slapped in the face with recently); A person who constantly has to defend his/her words and actions with “I was just joking”, is never just joking. And a person who uses God in defense of his/her bigotry is never going to see things any other way.

Which is why fiction is so much better than real life. In a book, a character can make a giant arc and change. Real people are not so accommodating.
