    To hate is to dislike some one intensely.

    What is wrong with it depends on why you hate someone and does it cloud your judgement.

    Hatred can be good. Best example would be hating an ex-girlfriend or boyfriend because they cheated on you. Your hatred prevents you from trusting the person or allowing the person back in your life. In the end, most cheaters never stop so it is good to exclude them from your life and your hatred will facilitate that.

    Hatred can be bad when it is irrational. The most obvious example is hatred based on skin color.

    So is hatred wrong? The only answer that is valid is "depends."

    I think it depends. It's always wrong to hate another person. However, I don't believe it's wrong to hate certain actions.

    Depends on the situation. I hate onions. There's nothing morally wrong with that.

    I'm not sure whether I would consider hatred as right or wrong, but I would say that it is often confused for an emphatic rejection thereof.

    Would that be like when I puke out food that has onions in it?

    They made me vomit, or "emphatically reject" them.

    Re: Is Hatred wrong?

    Hate is a very strong word. I thought I had hated things before... until I experienced real hate. I've only ever truly hated once in my life, and it is a scary, unpleasant, soul-rotting experience. You know it when it hits you. The casualness with which you used "hate" in the past is suddenly so extremely incorrect. Real hate defies words.

    Is it wrong, per se? Assuming it remains only a feeling, no. I don't think feelings are ever "wrong."

    But it does indicate that you need to do some re-orienting of your perspective, and fast, or you're going to wind up becoming something truly awful. The capacity to feel real hate, at least as it applied to me, was an indication that I needed to change something about how I process my feelings, and other people's actions.

    Re: Is Hatred wrong?

    If you define hate as intense dislike, why would it be wrong?

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