Isn't hate wrong? Can there be a right time to hate?

Hate of hateful things is right.

But how can you tell if something is legitimately hateful?

Hate, after all, is an emotion, and divorced from logic.

We should hate all evil and sin. Those are “legitimately hateful.”

I would also argue that hate isn’t an emotion, but its effects like anger, wrath, perhaps envy and jealousy can result from improperly-focused hate.

Not true. We can rationally know what is wrong.

Yes, we can know what is wrong, but when we inject strong emotion (like hate) rationality goes out the window.

I am reminded of old Captain Buster Skelton. Buster served with Merrell's Marauders, behind Japanese lines in Burma: "Gentlemen, never hate your enemy. Respect your enemy."

Ecc 3:8 refer to hating a person?

But this clearly does NOT address hating a person.
