Love/Hate #7

She loved her faithful husband,
but hated the Christianity that had raised him to be.

She loved being pregnant,
but hated giving birth.

She loved environmentalism,
but hated the capitalism that helped her spread “the green word.”

She loved Mexican food,
but hated Mexicans.

She loved cheering for the football players,
but wouldn’t let them in her house.

She loved tolerance for all groups,
but hated it when someone thought she was a member of one.

She loved living in the Deep South,
but hated their genteel culture.
