Do we prevent somebody being hurt by superstition or faith by rejecting and challenging those things? 

Is it mistaken to support organised religion in membership or donations?

If people do good because they are human, not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

HATRED IN DISGUISE

The doctrine that you must love the sinner, a sinner is a person who freely does wrong against God and deserves punishment, but hate the sin is a subtle way of telling you to hate the sinnerís guts but to hide it under sugary self-righteous hypocrisy. Hate always involves judging another person as bad but does not necessarily have to involve intense emotional dislike. To enjoy hurting a person without having an intense dislike for that person is the worst hatred of the lot for it is controlled and devious and you can cover your tracks instead of being carried away by your feelings. To accuse people of sin or of freely doing wrong using their free will is incitement to hatred.
 
It is easier not to give a toss about people than it is to hate them with strong dislike. This indifference is the worst hatred of the lot because you consent to be indifferent which is an act of hate for it seeks to hurt the person and to approve if that person is destroyed. The person that hates you might not go that far. So indifference is the true opposite to love and not hate but it is based on hate so it is hating and not caring at the same time just like we can care about a person one way and not care another. Free willism and its daughter religion incite to hatred and indifference for they teach that evil doing is done by persons who create evil and are not programmed to do it. The law must start coming down on incitement to indifference as strongly as it does on hatred.

If you hate the sin you hate the evil will in a person. But the will is part of the person so that means you hate the person too for it is the person doing the willing. It is far better to be a person who openly hates than one who hides it and lets it simmer and fester in the background. But hate is futile because there is no sin. And there is no sin because there is no such thing as choice or free will and because your enemies like you to hate them for the feeling is eats at you. There is no immorality in your enemy. There is just someone that needs to be helped on the way to reform and they will reform if the right buttons are pressed.
 
To believe in free will and say John was the origin of a hateful act is to say that John is hateful for John did the act.

Nobody says you must trust the sinner but not the sin which shows they do not mean it when they say they love the sinner and hate the sin for they are not making a separation.

We unbelievers in free will are able to hate the evil a person does without hating the person for we see the evil as something that has used the person and not as something the person uses or causes. When I do wrong it is not I that is doing the wrong but the forces in me and when I perceive that to be true I can love myself more easily and change for the better for I see my evil side as something outside of me that has no power over me if I stop letting it have the power which is done by enlightening myself. It is forces that take control of the mind that we see as unworthy of trust not persons. We may have to treat a person as shifty but we know it is not the person that is shifty but a disorder in the person. We must see each one of us as basically good and intrinsically good and recognise that we are just victims of evil no matter what evil we do.

Our philosophy is the only real hope for changing the world which is why we make no apology for seeking to fuse the denial of free will with state legislation. And why not when laws for condemning incitement to hatred canít be of any use when hatred is being smuggled in the back door? If you hate another person you hate yourself for you know it is better to look on the good side of that person for hate is painful and should be done without. So you must care about yourself really and truly and others will grow around you and become blessings for you. Think of your evil side as something that is not really part of you and your self-esteem will flourish. You need good philosophy and understanding to make good sensible laws and our views of right and wrong are simple and verifiable and so the state must be influenced by them if it is to do better than it does.

The doctrine of free will commands hate for it blames people for what they do and there is no need for blaming and it therefore denies that all people are equally precious. How? Because they are people even if it says it doesnít for to say unjust blaming is right is to deny that all people have the same rights. We deny free will and that is how we can declare persons to be equally valuable in every way. We see human evil as distorted good that needs to be fixed but not hated or condemned.
