The Psychology of Hate

"'Hate' has become another all-purpose term of opprobrium, like 'Nazi.'  If you oppose someone for any reason, you are a 'hater.'  If you disapprove of some idea or practice, you 'hate' the people who hold that idea or follow that practice.  If you speak out about it, you may get accused of 'hate-speech.'  And yet, despite the inflation of the word’s meaning, there is such a thing as 'hatred,' and we would do well to understand the emotion." - Gene Veith

"While there are certainly individual Christians who are bigots, the theology itself is founded in and based on love"

"Here’s the reality. While there are certainly individual Christians who are bigots, the theology itself is founded in and based on love — love for the God who created us, and love for the people we want to see enter into relationship with their Savior. The biblical sexual ethic is based on a sincere conviction that it is best for human flourishing and is even symbolic of the sacred relationship between Christ and His Church." - Love Is Not Hate: National Review
