It's like it makes "hate" the sin. They subtly refocus the hate from an act or idea and transfer it to a person or to a people group. This violates two Biblical principles that most miss.
First, only God can judge an individual. See Hebrews 9:27, Matthew 25:31-35 and Revelation 20:11-12. Second, God's people are called to judge words and actions by comparing those words and actions to God's word. See Matthew 7:15-20 and 1 Corinthians 6:1-6.
The Culture War
In America the Left has demonized the word "hate" in such a way as to make "hate" evil or sin (In truth, they don't practice what they preach at all but are the worst practitioners. Hypocrites!). Therefore many Christian's are tricked into a false sense of complacency which is one of the reasons why the Church is so ineffective in the culture war. Most Christians are ignorant of God's word and think the love of God is best displayed by avoiding any sort of conflict and hating nothing for fear they'd be accused of judging people.
