Velma, hating for Christ is still hating. One simply can NOT HATE for Christ. It stands against every single thing he ever spoke of. His message was one of love, kindness, generosity, tolerance and gentleness. He only EVER got outright violent ONCE. And precisely WHO was it that he got upset with? The MONEY changers, not the run of the mill, average sinners, it was the folks who preached the law but held MONEY up to be the measure of a person. And yet it is precisely the RICH that so many Christians seem set out to praise as being successful. I can age to be a million years old and gain wisdom in every single one of those years and yet I will NEVER figure out the logic behind the thinking of "Christians" like that. It is NOT the law, it is the SPIRIT of the law and that spirit is LOVE. Nothing more and nothing less. And that doesn't mean TOUGH love. TOUGH love is NOT love; it is bullying to get compliance with the majority's wishes, period. Antie Pantie is one of those. She THINKS it's tough love but in reality, it is BULLYING to get people to comply with HER interpretation of what SHE thinks Christianity is.
