Simple message about hatred

No matter how you spin it, the deep, intense hatred of Donald J. Trump is real, and millions of otherwise intelligent people practice it.

In a rational and ethical world, it is delusional and dangerous to believe hating someone is a virtuous act.

A few stubborn critics might want to pull out the Hitler reference, insisting that it is virtuous to hate evil.

Most reasonable people would agree.

However, Hitler was a merciless murderer of millions of innocent people. Trump is merely an arrogant tycoon.

Let's try some honesty for a change, and stop pretending that the man the mob just lynched must have been guilty if he's now hanging from a rope.

"For this is the message you heard from the beginning: We should love one another. Do not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own actions were evil and his brother’s were righteous.

"Do not be surprised, my brothers and sisters, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love each other. Anyone who does not love remains in death. Anyone who hates a brother or sister is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life residing in him."

-- 1 John 3:11-15  NIV
