I tell them something I've said here quite a few times.
Jesus traveled from village to town in his ministry, teaching, healing the sick, performing miracles. He met with sin and other failings, and even complete disbelief and indifference without ever losing his cool. His own disciples got the message wrong and he corrected them with gentleness and even humor. He never got angry, never told anyone they were going to Hell, or even HINTED that those who believed him were more virtuous or more loved by God or anything like that. He believed everyone was equal in the eyes of God and treated people that way.'
Until he got to Jerusalem and saw the corruption in the leadership of his own religion. That really made him mad! He got visibly angry, knocked over a table, and denounced the hypocrites in strong language--and it was that outburst that led to his demise.
What do we learn from this story? Jesus didn't hate adulterers, tax collectors, bullies, small-time crooks, etc. etc. What he did hate--so much that it cost him his life--was HYPOCRITES!
If you look up HYPOCRITE in the dictionary, the first definition is "Someone who follows Donald Trump but lectures others on morality."
