A Bit Too Much Hyperbole
I'm not above taking an occasional cheap shot, especially if I think it is funny or makes a larger point.
Drew Litton, however, crossed the line today.
The Rocky Mountain News cartoonist compared Tim Hardaway to Adoph Hitler and the Ku Klux Klan. What did Hardaway do to warrant such a comparison?
He made some stupid and hateful statements:
"You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known. I don't like gay people and I don't like to be around gay people. I am homophobic. I don't like it. It shouldn't be in the world or in the United States."
This hardly gibes with Jesus' command that we love our neighbor.
However, Hardaway's ignorance hardly rises to the level of a genocidal maniac responsible for the murder of millions of Jews or to a violent group responsible for lynchings and terrorism.
The cartoon is a bit over the top.
