Do believers hate non-believers?
An atheist/agnostic quoted: You can safely assume you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.
- Anne Lamott
Response: Believers don't hate non-believers. As believers have been led to guidance, one hopes that non-believers will also eventually come to faith. However, one can only share the message. To accept or reject is up to each individual. In fact, in the scripture, the Prophet is being consoled to not to worry so much why they refuse to believe, as God knows and decides who to grant faith to.
Someday I hope you will be quoting the scriptures as often as you quote humans :)
