In general, are Christians more hateful than non-Christians?

I see it abd respectfully disagree. it's not truth that sounds like hatred, but hatred that sounds like hatred.

hatred sounds like truth to some.

Those who reject God's unchanging TRUTHS, label those who accept God's Truths as HATERS.

those who CITE God's word TO condemn others are IGNORING Jesus's message OF grace.

What is wonderful about Grace is that it is available to everyone but accepted by very few.

I have not witnessed Christians being any more hateful than others. However, many are willing to believe that non-Christians are more hateful than themselves, merely because they don't believe in God.

Christians are the most loving people on planet earth.

We're trying not to be. Becoming a Christian doesn't mean you're instantly perfect - it just means you've met the One Who is.

But it should be noted that those who love sincerely generally do it without fanfare. That's why we notice Christians who hate more. And why we notice atheists who hate more than those who love. Not very fair. :o)

Agreed. It's roughly the same proportions as the general population. Now, if we're talking about hard-line fundamentalists, then that answer might change, but that's hardly fair.

Did you also vote that Christians are more loving than atheists on the other poll?

Not more loving than any specific group, but I said that exceptions are more visible than the stereotypes. You and Praet stand out to me as more loving/caring than most nonbelievers. I hope I stand out to as many non-Christians as possible on this Q.

Tom, remember, we are talking about generalizations. while there are hard-line fundamentalists who are wonderful, there are many who are much less so. perhaps thus is another case puff a particularly visible minority, though.

No, not more hateful and not more loving. Being a loving person doesn't have anything to do with religion. It has to do with opening your heart to others and treating others with kindness. Both believers and non-believers can and do love others.
