50 Groups/Individuals Jesus Says You Can Hate

Our nonprofit is laser focused on doing just that — feeding the hungry, providing clean water, and loving people in tangible, sustainable ways. Take one minute and sign up to give one dollar a month. Seriously, just a dollar a month, and it can help push back darkness with light & love.

Alright, enough of the commercial. Now the list:

After hours of bible study, and in a cultural climate where there is a lot of discussion surrounding who should be welcome or not, who is morally qualified or not, who should be elected (or not), appointed (or not), hired (or not), or embraced (or not), I’ve curated a comprehensive list of all the people Jesus has said it was okay for us not to love, serve, forgive, and show mercy toward.

In other words, you have Scriptural permission to hate, cast out, demonize, distance yourself from, and hold grudges against all of the following fifty groups or individuals. You don’t have to be kind to them, serve them, or even associate with them. You have Biblical mandate to talk badly about them, condemn them, and wish failure upon them. Hyperventilate online about them. Scoff. Scorn. Scold. They’re all fair game–the whole list–according to the Lord.

Without further ado, here’s a comprehensive list of 50 Groups/Individuals Jesus Says You Can Hate:

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven.” Jesus, Matthew 5:43-45, emphasis mine, but I think Jesus would be okay with it.
