Is it a sin to hate Democrats?
Survey results and user comments

Below are some of the votes and comments submitted by readers who took last month's survey.

Brian - Aberdeen, SD
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: I don't think so. Pity, maybe. Oops! I meant PRAYER! PRAYER! (Really!)

Justin - Manitoba
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: Because God hates them. Co-incidentally, God hates everybody that I do.

K.T. - Visalia
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: Of Course not, everyone knows they Hate God, America, unborn babies, Rich people, Fast Food, Rush Limbaugh, and SUV's. Dont forget, they are the Demoncrats.

Domingo Mantoya - Jamestown, NY
Is it a sin?: Don't Know
Comments/Why?: Liberman - No. All other Dems - Yes.

Kyle W. - Sycamore, IL
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: Because everyone in my church knows that Jesus was a Republican.

Rick - Marengo, OH
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: As everyone knows, the DEMONcrats are the party that is the reason this country is in the shape it's in. If it hadn't been for Clinton, Bush would not be at war in the Middle East. If it were not for the Democratic congresses of the past, the Republicans would not have to be creating the biggest deficit in history. Since everything wrong with America is the fault of Demoncrats, it is not a sin to hate them.

Scott - Florida
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: (Numbers 22:29) "And Balaam said unto the ass, 'Because thou hast mocked me: I would there were a sword in mine hand, for now would I kill thee.'" If it's good enough for the Word O' God, it's good enough for me!

David - Grand Rapids, MI
Is it a sin?: Don't Know
Comments/Why?: I don't know. but I have been pondering a similar issue...Is it a sin to make fun of Howard Dean's sissy lips...

Brian - Vestal, NY
Is it a sin?: Yes
Comments/Why?: Hey Bill Clinton is a Southern Baptist, Teddy Kennedy is a Roman Catholic and Hillary is the High Preistess of the Rabid Badger Society! (Newsweek Jan 13th 1998) Cut them some slack! God loves all of us!

Jason Reeves - Redwood City, CA
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: Well if you think of Democrats as a disease, it's the whole 'hate the sin not the sinner' argument. So therefore it's OK.

Mitch Bojarski - Tully, NY
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: If loving a Democrat is wrong, I don't want to be right!
THO's Response: What?

Dawn - KC, MO
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: It is a sin, however, to vote for them!

Ralph E. Hansen - Endwell, NY
Is it a sin?: Don't Know
Comments/Why?: Depends on your definition of what 'is' is. Love the sinner. Hate the sin. There 'is' no sin in 'it'.

Socrates - Rome, NY
Is it a sin?: Yes
Comments/Why?: What is more, I can show that we are obligated to do so by using several out-of-context verses. Ec 3:8 clears the way: 'there is a time to hate'. That time is now pro-lifers! Next, since there are no Christian Democrats, all Demon-crats must hate God. This leads me to Ps 139:21; 'Do I not hate them that hate thee, O Lord?' (Further study of Psalms indicates that King David was a Republican also.) Then we are commanded - Am 5:15; 'Hate evil, and love good, and establish justice'. That one is a no-brainer. I stand united with Diane Alden in reference to Lu 16:13. I quote her in the article 'The Devil's Brigade in America' (, 'Voting Democrat with the accepted beliefs of the official party means that one has chosen mammon.' Last but not least, a man like Paul should know a thing or two about evil and politics. In Ro 12:9 he exhorts us, 'Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good'. And fortunately, I can easily squeak in under the Mt 22 (aka the catch 22) commandment. All my neighbors are either Republicans or too stupid to vote.
THO's Response: Did you mean to vote "No," as in "no, it's not a sin?" Because it really seems like you meant to say "no."

Tim - Greenwich, CT
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: No it's not, so long as in our justification we can throw in something about 'family values' and use the word 'sanctity' more than once.

Ben - Spencerport, NY
Is it a sin?: (No Vote)
Comments/Why?: We are to hate the sin but love the sinner. Therefore, the hatred of an individual for the sin of being a Democrat would be a sin itself. It is not, however, a sin to hate evil and unrighteousness. The Democrat party, represented by the DNC and its state affiliates, is clearly pure evil in organizational form. Since the it is an organization and not a person, it can be subject to sin-free hatred. Just as it is not wrong to hate the Baltimore Ravens (another institutional form of evil) as an organization, it is not wrong to hate the DNC and its affiliate organizations.

Dax - Mississauga, Ontario
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: What a silly question. The real issue is whether or not it's a sin to stone them. Like, with rocks.

Marie - Stuart, FL
Is it a sin?: Yes
Comments/Why?: Hate the sin, not the sinner. And since when is stupidity sin?

Laura - Metairie, LA
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: (In keeping with the tone of this website!) I'd say it's obligatory to hate Democrats. After all, they hate President Bush, our most beloved Christian political leader, and it says in Luke 11:23, 'He who is not with me is against me, and he who does not gather with me scatters.' Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket...
THO's Response: Is it within the tone of this website to print your disclaimer?

Paula - Florida
Is it a sin?: Yes
Comments/Why?: Yes, because Republicans suck.
THO's Response: Interesting premise, Paula! a "that doesn't make any sense" sort of way.

Mandy - EauClaire, WI
Is it a sin?: Yes
Comments/Why?: First of all its a sin to hate. Add in the fact that the Democrats are God's chosen political affiliation, but it's ok...Howard Dean is the spawn of Satan...

Eric True - Puyallup, WA
Is it a sin?: Yes
Comments/Why?: They're not the enemy. They're just deceived - really deceived.

Bob - Kansas City, MO
Is it a sin?: Yes
Comments/Why?: If you hate your brother you have committed murder in your heart. Sounds like a clear cut issue to me. Is murdering someone a sin? Is sex outside of marriage a sin? Is stealing a sin? Is slander a sin? Is hate a sin? Just think about it. Stupid survey question.
THO's Response: Bob, bob, bob... We're not talking about my brother — the question is regarding Democrats.

Elizabeth - Brussels, Belgium
Is it a sin?: Yes
Comments/Why?: It is a sin, because the symbol of the Democrats is a donkey, and as we all know, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, and thus inferring, the Democrat party is God's instrument in bringing salvation to the nation.
THO's Response: Very good point!

Jonathan - Stanford, CA
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: We must hate democrats because they seek to put an end to our 8-year Presidential Fast Campaign! Presidential Fasting is an important spiritual discipline, similar to regular fasting insofar as we do it because we feel guilty for looking at porn. In the case of Presidential Fasting, it is usually a result of guilt over having a president who can form grammatical English sentences. Our God-given tribulation is not yet at an end, so we must not let the democrats make an end of it.
THO's Response: Okay, you lost us right before "porn."

Scotch - Paz, CA
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: Romans 12:9: Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Doesn't take a Masters in Theology to interpret that one, eh?

GSJ - Milpitas, CA
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: We know that from history that the left hand was considered unclean so one would also assume the left wing would also be unclean (impure). Right (wing) is righteous. It is obvious that Democrats are not elect (predestined by God for salvation) therefore it is o.k. to hate that which is not a blessing of God. All humor aside, yes it is a sin to hate Democrats. God so loved the WORLD (left, right, or moderate). To be Christian is to be Christlike--unconditional love.
THO's Response: Humor?

Kevin - Richmond, KY
Is it a sin?: No
Comments/Why?: I heard the Democrats are actually the return of the Nephilim. Why else would they look down up on all us conservative, law-abiding, and righteous Republicans? Have you ever seen John Kerry standing next to GW? He is huge! There is no doubt that Kerry is one of them.
