You should only hate sin. Im trying to deal with hatred of my own family. Im sorry I was born into this perverted drunken pigs of a so called family. I exxed them out from my life and I feel so much better, like a burden has been lifted from my shoulders. I only have four members of my family on my mothers side. The rest are dead to me and shall remain dead forever.

Besides Vengeance is mine saith the Lord.Do Unto Others As you Would Have Others Do Unto You.
Hate is an incredible waste of energy. That, and it's toxic. Hate is ugly, and nothing I wish to entertain *even if I had time to do so.*
Why would it be wrong to hate evil?

Hate is not just a concept. Hate is also an emotion. Emotions can be toxic.A concept cannot be toxic, BDBoop.
It's ugly because it shows a lack of understanding and create even more negativity than there already is.Hate is not exclusively ugly. Do you hate your flaws? Do you hate murderers and rapists? Do you hate your father?
Not all hate is ugly.
