    Re: Is Hatred wrong?

    This is just my opinion based on my life experience. You cant stop the feeling of hate any more than you can stop the feeling of love or any other emotion.
    Hate is merely a word and is overused....To give an example, as a cop, whenever I saw abused kids, neglected kids, sexually abused kids...hatred swelled in me for the perpetrators and the parents. That feeling was for what they had done, not because of any other factor like race or creed or sexuality...this is hard for me to put in words..so Ill simplify it..
    Yes its ok to hate some people for some things....I think its unavoidable.

    Odd, I've never encountered it in a general sense. Just about specific situations.

    Hating a thing is OK, but hating a person is ALWAYS wrong. Even dislike is wrong.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    I define hatred as an intense dislike and disgust with another individual.

    And as to whether it is wrong. I will go by this Matthew 6:15 - Passage Lookup - King James Version - BibleGateway.com

    We must always seek to forgive and not hate, even when we are severely wronged. (not easy to do)

    Why is hating a person wrong? Why can't I just hate someone if they are a horrible person?

    There are very few issues that would make me hate somthing/someone. So far in my life I really only hate one person. And that is because he molested my nieces.

    It depends on why the hate is directed at someone. If its because you hate their skin color,religion,disability then sure its wrong. If its because that person did something really despicable to you or a loved then that hatred is okay.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Re: Is Hatred wrong?

    Hatred is an emotion.

    Emotions are. Period. They exist without moral value.

    Bigotry is wrong, becuase bigotry is hatred mixed with ignorance.

    Re: Is Hatred wrong?

    Hating is not "wrong" per se, but it is undesirable. As others have said, it is harmful to self mentally and physically. Hate defines a person as love defines a person. Hate and love are similar in many ways. Everyone is capable of not hating, but it can be very difficult work. It is a nasty vile emotion. Why would anyone want to harbor the emotion and all the garbage that comes with it?










    "When Faith preaches Hate, Blessed are the Doubters." - Amin Maalouf

    When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command. Very often, that person is crazy. ~Dave Barry
