Vs. the "alternative".
Pacifica Tribune Letters to the Editor, 3/30/17. "Love trumps hate" by Rev. Piers Lahey (Daly City)

"Dear Editor, I was a bit confused by Bob Larsen's recent letter.
Bob was mentioning the "resisters" in the U.S. and many other countries as well. I'm sure that Bob was referring to the widespread opposition to Mr. Trump and his administration.
I always believed that the motto of all the 'resisters' was and is 'Love trumps hate.' If it's the reverse, as Bob indicates, if hate does indeed trump love, then there's one way to respond.
Hate will trump love only if people of faith give up their sincere passionate lifelong urgent struggle to "do justice, embrace faithful love and walk humbly with God." (Micah 6:8)."
