The only love I would like to have is with my own family/friends and a partner. I don't want to "love" everybody else around me as a brother or sister.
To add further insult to injury, I'll just get more hurt as that's how religion generally believes.
Excuse me, but clearly God doesn't love, or desire to love, everyone, since the Bible speaks of his striking down all sorts of people.

I don't tell people they're going to hell. I don't believe in hell. I do hope that all people think instead of just blindly accept.

No. I call SOME religious people "unthinking". I just told you about being with a group of christians who debated the topic...and most of them showed thinking skills.
