    That is the saddest thing I've ever heard. In knowing you through the words you write, I'd say there is great worth in what is left of you. *hugs*

    Well said! It seems to be true for some people, unfortunately. Your life becomes what you feed it.

    There are many sane sinful people. Lawyers, lol, as a vague example.

    Mayhaps a new, philosophical thread topic will be born.
    Wait a minute! No one said we were talking about lawyers. I thought this discussion was about hatred of other human beings.

    As a Christian "hate" really has no place in my vocabulary. It is the opposite of love and that implies allot. Now I can dislike someone or hate something, but I refuse to hate people. I am under no obligation to like them though, lol.

    Good on you. It comes down to what you want the world to be or as Gandhi said, "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." We can all find reasons to hate or we can choose to work past it. Often it is not easy.

    Re: Is Hatred wrong?

    Hate, which is a human "emotion" such as is love. Emotions are what makes us tick and some are positive and others are negative, but they are all part of our being...........

    What may be considered wrong about any emotion is how it is directed.........................

    BTW, I do hate many things and some people but only based on personal situations............

    Hey now, Mr.Websters, hate is "usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury".

    Is it ok to base emotions or actions on fear, anger or a sense of injury? I believe that fear and anger are derrived from ignorance; therefore, hate is "usually" derived from ignorance. Let's note that "sense of injury" is not "injury" and probably represents "victimization", for which we can also find ignorance responsible. If we accept that fear, anger and victimization are based in ignorance, then Websters, does - in fact - say that hate is (usually) based on ignorance. I, personally, would say hate is always derived from ignorance and is only ok in the case of hating evil; basically, one does not need to understand evil people and evil stuff, thus it can be hated. One can be ignorant and despise child-rape. It's simply not reasonable to ask the average person to try to understand such things; however, it is the act that should be hated, not the person.

    iirc, the OT said it was ok to hate evil acts and specifically lies. I don't suppose Jesus made a similar remark.

    So much for backing up you claims as you said you would. I doubt anyone familar with your posting history believed you when you said it anyway.

    Don't send me PMs. If you don't have the guts to say it publicly, I don't want to hear it.
