It’s Okay

It’s okay to send a teenager against his will to be cured of his homosexuality. It’s okay to process animals through “rendering plants” if they are “unfit for human consumption.” It’s okay to seize someone’s home against their will if it’s in the public good.

Yes, I use to wish that my homosexuality could be cured, sometimes I eat meat without thinking about how animals are processed, and I have stolen in the past.

And none of it is okay.
