For everyone’s edification: “Hate the sin, not the sinner” is not a Christian quote – it is a Pagan one, from Mahatma Gandhi.

St. Thomas Aquinas- a CATHOLIC-, says that the sin and the Sinner are not separated; without the Sinner, there is no sin… God doesn’t send a “sin” to Hell – He sends the Sinner to Hell.

“In respect to their guilt whereby they are opposed to God, all sinners are to be hated, even one’s father, or mother, or kindred. For it is our duty to hate in the sinner his being a sinner….

Nothing prevents one and the same thing being loved under one aspect, while it is hated under another. God loves sinners in so far as they are existing natures; for they have existence and have it from Him. In so far as they are sinners, they have not existence at all, but fall short of it; and this in them is not from God. Hence under this aspect, they are hated by Him…” (St. Aquinas, Summa.)

We are to love the sinner only for the fact that he can change – and we are called to help him change. “The weak should avoid associating with sinners, on account of the danger in which they stand of being perverted by them. But it is commendable for the perfect, of whose perversion there is no fear, to associate with sinners that they may convert them.”
If you love your neighbor for the human reason of respect, you are in error. You love him by converting him to God. This is why you will be hated by sinners.
(Alice Herrick-Davis)

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" – George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. We live in a “post-truth” world. According to the dictionary, “post-truth” means, “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” Simply put, we now live in a culture that seems to value experience and emotion more than truth. Truth will never go away no matter how hard one might wish. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their low information tabloid reality show news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting – this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." – George Orwell “There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn’t true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true.” ― Soren Kierkegaard
