    I would think my thread on homosexuality shows that people make that point. My other thread on incest contained some like claims. Perhaps you want me to post a "If harmless it's not wrong" thread?

    I don't appreciate you saying I'm using a strawman.

    I am and will back myself up.

    Re: Is Hatred wrong?

    Hate is not right or wrong, but it does represent a lower level of consciousness. Hate, as well as violence, are relatively unconscious behaviours. They are based in the root or animal mind. Compare that to holistic love and compassion which take self-cultivation and awareness to achieve; those are rooted in the higher mind. I use the words "lower" and "higher" in relativistic ways. Ultimately it's all just mind and consciousness, but the labels help to discern which is conducive to living a life that is closer to being with Divinity. Hate cannot achieve that.

    It's why love and hate are opposites. Right and wrong though... those don't really factor into it. That's like saying an ocean is wrong or a forest is right. They're just egoic perspectives about something that just is.

    You can search my Incest and Homosexuality threads yourself. If you want to nitpick in such a way, for your own entertainment, check for yourself. On your time, not mine. Hell no.

    I will post a thread about whether something is wrong if harmless.

    So twice now when asked to back up your claim you refuse to do so. Can't imagine why any one would think you where building a strawman when you claim people say something but won't show proof with context.

    It's proper. What fuels your power with the Force but your passion? The stronger, darker emotions. Anger, hatred, fear… these passions empower us.

    Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
    Through passion, I gain strength.
    Through strength, I gain power.
    Through power, I gain victory.
    Through victory, my chains are broken.
    The Force shall free me.

    Are you baiting me?

    I just said I'm not going to waste my time gathering posts from those two threads, on a thread about hatred, just to have them ignored. You've got fingers and time, so you can search thoroughly those two threads I'm recommending you search to answer your claim that I'm using a "strawman".

    So essentially hatred isn't wrong if not acted upon.

    I suppose this goes for pride, envy, greed, selfishness, etc.
