In Praise of Gentleness; Kate Lovelady, Leader

My two platforms in October will look at the related topics of gentleness and violence. Popular culture denigrates gentleness as “weakness” and violence as “strength” and teaches us that the right and righteous response to evil is to kick its ass. But does this view match our understanding and our values as Ethical Humanists? And if not, what can we do to promote an alternate view within our own minds and families as well as in the wider culture?
