When is hate acceptable to you? When is it okay to hate another human being, to never forgive or forget what they have done?
Posit two people who hold opposite views of what is morally accptable in some areas of life; would that mean their could never be a friendship with one another? Never share a coffee or ideas? That each will always view the as some sort of evil being?
Can two disagree strongly in this regard yet still "love" each other? Advocate for each other? Care what happens to one another?
Even more to the point, can we help each other even if our morals offend?
What is the cut off point for that?
At what point do you find hate acceptable? At what point is it morally good?
