Hate is a terrible thing. The way to attack it is with love.
In Lincoln, Nebraska, a Jewish couple was on the receiving end of a campaign of harassment from the local Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. They discovered that he was crippled and had great difficulty leaving his house to buy food.
They startled him by showing up one day with a fine meal. They continued to return, and the Wizard with gratitude, accepted their friendship. Their love became an antidote to his poisonous hate.
Didn’t Jesus say something about loving our enemies?
