Take away hatred from some people, and you have men without faith.

Hatred and religion
Oh my. Sadly, this is so true:
-- Eric Hoffer (1902–83), U.S. philosopher
I well remember being very influenced by Eric Hoffer's amazing work, The True Believer, back when I was a philosophy student in the early 70s. It is about the psychology of fanaticism and, if you're unfamiliar with it, I urge you to read up on Hoffer's thought in this regard.
