It is a sad fact of life that there are some human beings who cannot exist without expressing animosity, or worse, deep and extremely emotional dislike directed against individuals, groups or ideas. Indeed, hatred is nearly always associated with feelings of intense anger, unwarranted disgust and an unhealthy pre-disposition towards hostility and violence. It is no mystery why many Americans are flummoxed over the behavior and violent expressions of hatred originating in the evangelical Christian movement, particularly when their religion’s namesake, Jesus Christ, preached and commanded his followers to be compassionate, forgiving, charitable, and tolerant to the point of having overwhelming love for their fellow man.
