Hate - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary1 a: intense hostility and aversion usually deriving from fear, anger, or sense of injury
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.

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.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

So essentially hatred isn't wrong if not acted upon.
I suppose this goes for pride, envy, greed, selfishness, etc.
