If it bleeds it leads. The more horrifying, the better the ratings.
I do not believe in evil as a force of its own. It has no objective reality. There is, of course, no power in hatred.
Again, it's the dark force of primitive fundamentalism that puts more faith in fear than in God; that condemns sinners instead of bringing the light of love and forgiveness, as Christ taught; that controls others with lengthy rituals and icons of idolatry. This very same force is responsible for the current economic crisis. Style over substance. Fundamentalism, materialism (greed) and consumerism.
It's all LOVE.
God is love.
