Redditor 201241643 used the Matrix Morpheus meme (“What If I Told You”) to post a message on Imgur titled “My extremely conservative and Christian parents always taught me this.” The meme stated, “What If I Told You You Don’t Have To Agree With Someone’s Way Of Life To Treat Them Kindly.” The comments both on Imgur and Reddit were inspiring. On Imgur, yesiamagirlobsessed with football commented, “YES! My mom always taught me this and it’s been one of the most important lessons since growing up and leaving the house.” On Imgur, VergJusticiero commented, “This is THE Christian teaching. It’s to those we disagree with that we need to show tolerance. It’s easy to love someone in agreement.” On Reddit, alaskanfrog commented, “There we go! That’s what being truly openminded is all about. My parents were the EXACT same way. They have a religious problem with homosexuality, but they refused to EVER treat gay people different, and went out of their way to help out several gay family friends in their lives. I think that there are A LOT more conservatives that feel this way than is obvious in America. The angry ones are the ones who scream loudest, and get the most attention, whereas the nice loving ones keep to themselves and generally treat other people well. ‘Christian Mother tells children to be nice to other people regardless of their sexual orientation, race, or social position’ doesn’t make nearly as a good a headline as ‘The Westburo Baptist Church is being sh[*]tty once again.’” Also on Reddit, Ashleyrah commented, “Yay, so true. My conservative Baptist pastor used to scold people in the congregation for being rude to people outside their own worldview. I remember one day in particular when a lady said something rude about homosexuals he replied, ‘Wow … how about we focus on our own sins … say … gossip … before we start judging people who don’t even live by the same worldview we do.’”
