Letters to the Editor

Is hate ever OK?

Editor: When is hatred right?  We can hate sin; We can hate the devil, but is it ever correct for a Christian to hate other people?  The hatred displayed in Charlottesville, VA, by the KKK, the Neo-Nazis, the white supremacists would surely be condemned by our Lord.  Some caucasians were advocating to  take our country
