If God hates no one, why do *some* Christians?

I'm a Christian myself and I just don't understand...

If a person is Gay, A different race and/or religion, an unwed mother...What does that matter to (general) you? Isn't God the only one who is supposed to judge?


ETA:

Furthermore, if Christians believe that God created everyone and everything did "we" ever stop to think that maybe he created the differences in all of us to teach us more understanding and acceptance?

I'm Christian, and I hate noone... Unless they hurt children. I hate pedos and child abusers. I feel that's reasonable.

Yes, but we are human and to be human is to judge/hate/and fear difference's. Not saying that it is right, just that it's a fact of being human. I have never understood it though. Jesus himself ate and kept company with the prostitutes, the gamblers, the alcoholics, the thieves, etc. and yet 'we' feel as though we can not talk or be associated with them because they will taint our own faith. I believe that those are the people we need to reach out to the most, not condemn but help.

 There are standards God has given us to live by, if you don't follow those standards then people are going to call you on it.  It's like anything in this world, suck it up and move on.

It says in the Bible that we are to love one another and not to judge. As humans, we do judge and not always love one another.
