Unmasked, and Dave, perhaps this would be a good place to consider that old Bible verse: "Blessed are they who are persecuted, for My name's sake"
Any one who preaches hate, but pretends to be teaching love, or who preaches hate, but says that they are doing so in God's name, is NOT
preaching the word of the Lord.
We are ALL beloved children of God, from Mother Teresa to Idi Amin, and we all fall short of the glory of God.
Biblical literalists and self-righteous Fundies do not so much believe in God as they believe in fear, and they cling to their fears, and will not allow God to heal those fears.
