“Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all transgressions” (Proverbs 10:12).

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) reports that 1,020 hate groups now operate in the United States; a seven percent increase over last year. The political reasons for this are not as important as the church having a proper response—to be more loving. If all the professing Christians, representing the memberships of the more than 350,000 churches across this country, would recuse themselves from the fear-mongering and the rhetoric of hate, just imagine the influence the body of Christ could have in transforming the narrative of enmity and alienation dominating mainstream news outlets and social media.
