If you can set aside the boiling hypocrisy of the most hate-filled, angry people in the world railing against “hate”–what? You couldn’t set it aside? Oh, well, neither can I.
C.S. Lewis wisely observed that the robber takes what he wants and then goes away, you’re done with him; but the utopian busybody is never done with you.
So we have government busybodies and Big Tech busybodies and corporate busybodies whose main idea seems to be, “You don’t have God because there is no God, but you do have us!” They don’t understand what a lousy trade-off that is.
The point is: These prating schmendricks have no right to tell us what we ought to be; they have no right to tell us we can’t hate.
Hate is natural to us. It’s a part of us. A person without any capacity for hate would be emotionally incomplete. Not only do Far Left fumblers have no right to stop us from hating: it’s also impossible. That’s where the hypocrisy comes in. All they have to do, to understand that it’s impossible to get rid of hate, is look in the mirror. Hey! If you hated anyone as maniacally as the Loving Left hates Donald Trump, your family would urge you to seek help.
Watch these anti-haters go full-ballistic if you dare to say anything against “gay marriage,” transgender, Climbit Change, Obama, or any other of their multitude of sacred cows.
“Yeahbut, yeahbut, Jesus never hated!” (people who hate Christianity advising us how to be Christians)
Oh, yeah? Revelation 2: 20-23–
“[T]hou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death…”
We see from His words to John that Our Lord Jesus Christ hates fornication and idolatry, hates for them to be brought into His church, and if those who do it don’t stop doing it, and repent… He will destroy them.
The difference between Jesus and ourselves is that He hates what certain people do, and what they stand for, while we drift over into hating those persons themselves–forgetting that God will forgive them if they stop doing those things. God will wash them clean.
Well, we can’t do that. If we could, we wouldn’t have needed a Savior and God wouldn’t have sent us one. He knows our frailties.
Remember–many people have surely put “love” to improper uses, but nobody on NPR talks about abolishing love. There are those who’ve been destroyed by what they’ve made of love. But love is part of our humanity and cannot be removed.
If the busybodies could actually worm their way into our minds and scrub out all the thoughts and emotions that they think we shouldn’t have, they would surely do it.
But God, who could have done it if He pleased, has too much love and respect for us to take away our free will.
For that you need liberals.
