I don't know, but if hate is the opposite of love then I have never felt hate.
Dislike is the closest I have come.

There is no hatred that comes from the authorship of the faith from Jesus Christ thought out the Bible and Christianity....... If hatred is taught and people act on then this is not from the Holy Spirit of Jesus but a dark religious spirit of strife and contention who are not of Jesus and His authority...... This spirit behind the veil into the spirit is a white serpent of a devil, who is clean and white of the outside but is evil and divisive on the heart of this beast...... See Jesus told his children and followers to lover their neighbors as them selves ... and he said that their neighbors are every body in the entire world.....and the understanding is that His followers hate one one or be judged for unforgiveness , but they can hate the dark spirits in the spirit realm who manipulate evil in men and animals , because there is No mercy from Heaven for this spiritual dark spirits.....

Hate is a very strong emotion and seems to be a "contagious" one too.

Seems it is much easier to talk some people into "hating" than in "loving".

Many times some people end up loving and following the hater..and the snowball grows as it picks up speed on its downward journey.

There is no justification for hatred. It harms the hater more than the rest, and harms us all.

The opposite of love is not hatred. It's apathy.

You're right...it does harm the hater,.... as well as the ones that hate is directed at.....but in the mind of the hater there may be justification....I can not imagine hating without it!

You can be apathetic to ones plight...yet not hate.....you can be apathetic, and yet still feel love.

The original meaning of the word heresy from the Greek means choice.
Today it is used by the religious to describe anything that conflicts with their religious dogma....

In Christian history thousands were executed for the crime of heresy. Rather than hate heresy it would make more sense to me to hate those that think hate is a good thing...Man, that video brings back bad memories, and makes me thankful that I broke away from such dark age nonsense.

"During many ages there were witches. The Bible said so. The Bible commanded that they should not be allowed to live. Therefore the Church, after doing its duty in but a lazy and indolent way for 800 years, gathered up its halters, thumbscrews, and firebrands, and set about its holy work in earnest. She worked hard at it night and day during nine centuries and imprisoned, tortured, hanged, and burned whole hordes and armies of witches, and washed the Christian world clean with their foul blood. Then it was discovered that there was no such thing as witches, and never had been. One does not know whether to laugh or to cry."
Mark Twain
