• Our Father Donahue says that as long as Barack Obama repents, there will be a place in the kingdom of heaven for him too.
  • Depends what religion, most have an enemy, some more than others. Certainly that goes for the ones I know of. The answer is yes unless you define religious or spiritual as being altruistic, but they're different words, different meanings.
  • Yes. Look around you at the religious fanatics. They hate quite a lot of people. They hate entire groups, and even call for their death. There is no doubt that these people are religious. Religion Main Entry: re·li·gion Pronunciation: ri-ˈli-jÉ™n Function: noun Etymology: Middle English religioun, from Anglo-French religiun, Latin religion-, religio supernatural constraint, sanction, religious practice, perhaps from religare to restrain, tie back — more at rely Date: 13th century 1 a : the state of a religious <a nun in her 20th year of religion> b (1) : the service and worship of God or the supernatural (2) : commitment or devotion to religious faith or observance 2 : a personal set or institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs, and practices 3 archaic : scrupulous conformity : conscientiousness 4 : a cause, principle, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith They meet all the definitions for religion. They obviously hate quite a lot, and some even outright admit it.
  • not a true one, no.
  • &quot;Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates his brother is still in the darkness. 10Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and there is nothing in him[c] to make him stumble. 11But whoever hates his brother is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness; he does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded him."
  • Bible scripture states we must hate what Jehovah HATES...But not to take any action on it. E.G. To hate homosexuality as a practice, but take no action against those practicing it. (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10) Or do you not know that unrighteous people will not inherit God
  • they probably can but theyre not supposed to
  • The attributes we assign to our idea of "Religious and Spiritual" are never true in any universal sense. As long as we are having/identifying an individual existence there is the capacity to love and to hate.
    • Jenny_Rizzo
      Our ideas have never worked. They go beyond Scripture. The capacity to love and hate depends on the renewal of a person's mind. Ephesians 4:23-24 "And be renewed in the Spirit of your mind; 24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness."
  • The written verdict is: "Love the sinner, hate the sin." Jude 23 "Rescue any who need to be saved, as you would rescue someone from a fire. Then with fear in your own hearts, have mercy on everyone who needs it. But hate even the clothes of those who have been made dirty by their filthy deeds."
  • i dont think so
