It's not prejudice if you call it religion

Just where in the Bible does it tell you to hate people?

    I am not much familiar with Christianity, but I am sure it will be part of faith to hate evil, and sins. I have heard some try to distinguish between sin and those who are committing it, by love the sinner and hate the sin. But I think it is only natural to hate a persistent rebellious sinner. I doubt there is any decent human that will not hate Hitler.

    Isn’t the BettyBower site a satirical site about the religious right? If so, who is it, or what event, is the subject of this comic?

    And I’d strongly disagree with a blanket statement that Christians hate non-Christians. Just As I’d disagree that Muslims (because of some hard right extremists) hate non-muslims.

    Remember Obama. Many many white men of either party hate Obama because of the color of his skin. They were raised that way (ignoring the color of Jesus’s skin was the same as Obama)

    I’d imagine the issue revolves around Indiana’s religious freedom bill. I believe the Biblical prescription for dealing with homosexuals was to stone them. So a hateful act is not hateful if condoned by the Divine.

    Not only condoned, but required. If god hates them and we love god, then we must also hate them, right? Right?

    Meanwhile, there are many sins for which stoning is the punishment and the biblical Jesus did say something about him who is without sin casting the first stone.

    The old Testament is full of hate and intolerance. However, Christianity is based on the New Testatament and the teachings of Jesus Christ (Christ-ianity).

    Whether it is “natural” to hate the sinner (which is a debateable point in itself) is irrelevant. It’s also natural to covet thy neighbor’s wife. Either way, it’s not what Jesus taught.

    Also, hating *some* sinners (Hitler) is not the same as hating *all* sinners. Simirlarly, most parents agree that their kids do bad things, but few would call their own kids bad.
