I am surprised, rather shocked as to how many people even Christian ones do think we should be nice, and kind to the bad persons and still.. nothing doing! Especially to the bad TV evangelists, bad preachers who get drunk, commit adultery, steal, and any bad preacher. They in love should be rebuked rather. All realy bad people in love even should be in jail rather.. otherwise they will never learn to do good.. such is real life.. if people do not experience real negative consequences they tend not to change for the better
