How do we respond to religious hate against Christians including media
smear campaigns, verbal and physical abuse, bullying, threatening
behaviour, online abuse, damage to property?
9-10 People conceived and brought
into life by God don’t make a practice of sin. How could they? God’s
seed is deep within them, making them who they are. It’s not in the
nature of the God-begotten to practice and parade sin. Here’s how you
tell the difference between God’s children and the Devil’s children:
The one who won’t practice righteous ways isn’t from God, nor is the
one who won’t love brother or sister. A simple test. 11 For this is the
original message we heard: We should love each other. 12-13 We must not
be like Cain, who joined the Evil One and then killed his brother. And
why did he kill him? Because he was deep in the practice of evil, while
the acts of his brother were righteous. So don’t be surprised, friends, when the world hates you.
This has been going on a long time. 14-15 The way we know we’ve been
transferred from death to life is that we love our brothers and
sisters. Anyone who doesn’t love is as good as dead. Anyone who hates a
brother or sister is a murderer, and you know very well that eternal
life and murder don’t go together.1 John 3
If someone does you wrong, don’t try to pay them back by hurting them.
Try to do what everyone thinks is right. 18 Do the best you can to live
in peace with everyone. 19 My friends, don’t try to punish anyone who
does wrong to you. Wait for God to punish them with his anger. In the
Scriptures the Lord says, “I am the one who punishes; I will pay people
back.” 20 But you should do this: “If you have enemies who are hungry,
give them something to eat. If you have enemies who are thirsty, give
them something to drink. In doing this you will make them feel
ashamed.” 21 Don’t let evil defeat you, but defeat evil by doing good. Romans 1217Nie daj się zwyciężyć złu, ale zło dobrem zwyciężaj! List do Rzymian 12:21

13 If you are always trying
to do good, no one can really harm you. 14 But you may suffer for doing
right. If that happens, you have God’s blessing. “Don’t be afraid of
the people who make you suffer; don’t be worried.” 15 But keep the Lord
Christ holy in your hearts. Always be ready to answer everyone who asks
you to explain about the hope you have. 16 But answer them in a gentle
way with respect. Keep your conscience clear. Then people will see the
good way you live as followers of Christ, and those who say bad things
about you will be ashamed of what they said. 17 It is better to suffer for doing good than for doing wrong. Yes, it is better if that is what God wants.1 Peter 3

The legitimate defense of persons and societies is not an exception to
the prohibition against the murder of the innocent that constitutes
intentional killing. "The act of self-defense can have a double effect:
the preservation of one's own life; and the killing of the aggressor. .
. . The one is intended, the other is not."
Love toward oneself remains a fundamental principle of morality.
Therefore it is legitimate to insist on respect for one's own right to
life. Someone who defends his life is not guilty of murder even if he
is forced to deal his aggressor a lethal blow:
a man in self-defense uses more than necessary violence, it will be
unlawful: whereas if he repels force with moderation, his defense will
be lawful. . . . Nor is it necessary for salvation that a man omit the
act of moderate self-defense to avoid killing the other man, since one
is bound to take more care of one's own life than of another's.
Legitimate defense can be not only a right but a grave duty for one who
is responsible for the lives of others. The defense of the common good
requires that an unjust aggressor be rendered unable to cause harm. For
this reason, those who legitimately hold authority also have the right
to use arms to repel aggressors against the civil community entrusted
to their responsibility.
The efforts of the state to curb the spread of behavior harmful to
people's rights and to the basic rules of civil society correspond to
the requirement of safeguarding the common good. Legitimate public
authority has the right and duty to inflict punishment proportionate to
the gravity of the offense. Punishment has the primary aim of
redressing the disorder introduced by the offense. When it is willingly
accepted by the guilty party, it assumes the value of expiation.
Punishment then, in addition to defending public order and protecting
people's safety, has a medicinal purpose: as far as possible, it must
contribute to the correction of the guilty party.
Assuming that the guilty party's identity and responsibility have been
fully determined, the traditional teaching of the Church does not
exclude recourse to the death penalty, if this is the only possible way
of effectively defending human lives against the unjust aggressor.
however, non-lethal means are sufficient to defend and protect people's
safety from the aggressor, authority will limit itself to such means,
as these are more in keeping with the concrete conditions of the common
good and more in conformity to the dignity of the human person.
in fact, as a consequence of the possibilities which the state has for
effectively preventing crime, by rendering one who has committed an
offence incapable of doing harm - without definitely taking away from
him the possibility of redeeming himself - the cases in which the
execution of the offender is an absolute necessity "are very rare, if
not practically nonexistent."
