God commands evangelicals: "Be evil!"

Richard Land, a leader of the Southern Baptist Convention, told reporters on a conference call Wednesday that evangelicals are hopeful the [immigration] bill will remain focused on immigration and steer clear of gay rights. But if gay rights does become part of the bill, he said, the Southern Baptist Convention will no longer be able to support it. Other religious leaders issued similar warnings. 
God says first, you must oppress the gays. Then and only then, can you focus on doing something good. But it must never help gays. Heaven forfend!

Does religion make people evil? Looking dispassionately at the evidence, it seems it does. Hate seems to be the primary motivation of every evangelical sect. Otherwise, what could make them detest 1/10 (possibly even 1/6) of humanity? Only god can command this much hate. All hail Jeebus!
