Proverbs 6:16-19

I read a letter to the editor in the Citizen Times today that mentioned this scripture for the benefit of the Christians who helped to re-elect our president:

(Proverbs 6:16-19 ) There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers.

I've discussed my views on hate in an earlier post, but I thought this letter served as an interesting reminder that there are things that are detestable to God besides those we hear about most often from some vocal sects.
