The concepts of “Just War” and Christian Hate date at least from the time of St. Augustine (430). First, a few versus from Romans, Chapter 12, as written by the Apostle, Paul to remind us that hatred towards and the extirpation of evil must be predicated on love:
7 Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another.
17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay”, says the Lord.
God is not a magician, like Allah, who is viewed by his adherents, as controlling and micromanaging everything. God’s wrath is manifested throughout history through the hands of his created beings.
Thus, denying Islamic evil is the result of not practicing proper Christian hatred, which is: directed at heinous evil occurrences in the world; in appropriate proportion to the thing hated; calmly and rationally expressed, without blind rage; and without guilt. Meekly ignoring 1,400 years of Islamic tradition and jurisprudence permit the murder and enslavement of apostates and non-Muslims; sex-slavery, destruction of pre-Islamic antiquities, and pedophilia, among the many psychotic phenomenon characteristic of Islam paves the way to our eventual enslavement, as Muslims gathered slaves from Europe as far north as Ireland, many from Italy and Spain, not to mention sending black Africans into slavery both in Islam lands as well as sending them to European slave traders. Not ever to hate is to drain love of its meaning, for the good and loving shall be enslaved or killed by those justifying their lust and savagery in the context of Islam.
Hatred need not be blind and indiscriminate, as it is in the Islamic world toward everything and everyone not Islamic enough. Hatred can be focused on eliminating evil, and therefore moral, enlisted in the service of love, goodness and kindness, and not at all sinful. While it is true that Moses commanded us “…not to hate our brother”, the immoral and inhuman actions of many Muslims, including those “moderates” unwilling to put their lives on the line severs the bonds of brotherhood between themselves and the moral Christian believers. Indeed, a true Christian is compelled to hate the wicked and truly evil. God has given us the means of our own redemption, with people judged by the choices they make when confronted with absolute evil.
St. Augustine believed that one could be a Christian and kill one’s enemies because the destruction of the enemy’s body might actually benefit that person’s soul. In fact, he taught that only people who loved their enemy might kill their enemy: “No one indeed is fit to inflict punishment save the one who has first overcome hate in his heart.”
