I would say that, as a result of the United Kingdom being built upon Christian ideology, Christianity is the religion that is best suited to the United Kingdom. I, however, say that irrationality should be avoided at all times, and so selecting a "better" religion is like selecting a better form of execution - one may be better than others, but I'd rather avoid them all equally.
A lot of things do not infringe on my life, but I still offer my opinion when asked and where appropriate.
I would say the word 'abuse' fits nicely to explain my definition of hate. Hate, or the promotion of hate, suggests intolerance and venom towards something, which differs from criticism in that those who criticise do not hate the individual and do not necessarily intend to offend or harm.
However, I do take your point as such definitions are hard to completely explain - I suppose that is the problem with modern society.
