    Re: Is Hatred wrong?

    What is interesting is this statement: "If it's harmless, it's not wrong."

    Even dislikable hatred, if harmless, should not be deemed wrong or penalized.

    There seems to be a discrepancy.

    It's ok to hate evil, but only evil. Asking someone to understand it is too much.

    I don't think it's wrong, but hate can be destructive to one's well being and could affect physical health.

    I find it hard to believe very many would not have dislike for someone.

    Hatred is intense dislike. Of what? Many things.

    Society demonizes hate.

    Post "I hate 'x' race" here.

    We say harmless hatred isn't wrong, yet in society it is intensely hated and penalized. Ergo, discrepancy.

    Understanding was the only way I could find out of hatred. That was hard, because I was dealing with the kind of person most folks wouldn't even consider human in some senses. I still don't know if I fully understand, but I got as close as I think anyone can.

    Nothing is better for ones state of mind than to understand something that difficult, that completely "evil" as you put it. It's a very painful and dare I say transcendent experience.

    Re: Is Hatred wrong?

    Hatred is not just an intense dislike. There is an implied ignorance. That ignorance is only permissable in the case of evil.


    Look, that's it, folks. There's nothing else to say here.

    Why are feelings wrong?
