You are right there has been a great deal of hate that has come out of many organized religions, but there is a big difference between following an organized religion and following the teachings of Christ from the New testament. Organized religions are like any other organization - they are subject to all of the corruption of man, because they are run by men.

I think this is one of the problems that confronts non believers - - they see hate coming out of some religions and they assume that this must come from god

Hate does not come from God - in fact it says right in the bible that if a man says he loves god but hates his brother then he is lying about loving God and that would mean that they are not a Christian.
