...generally the liberal idea is to be nice to your enemies, punish your friends. No, I think you should punish your enemies and be nice to your friends.
Well, I'm not sure if this is a liberal idea or not, but, if you believe the gospels anyway, it was definitely one of Jesus'.
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you. -- Matthew 5:44
But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you. -- Luke 6:27
But love ye your enemies, and do good. -- Luke 6:35
Maybe Jesus founded not only the Catholic Church, but the godless Church of Liberalism as well.
