You may gloss the scriptures however you choose, of course, as we  
probably all do at times.  However, the very wording  of the scriptural 
verses I cited indicates that God hates the person or people being 
named, and not merely the evil deeds; to wit:

(Helaman 15:4) But behold my brethren, THE LAMANITES HATH HE [GOD] HATED 
because their deeds have been evil continually, and this because of the 
iniquity of the tradition of their fathers.

(Malachi 1:2-3, cited in Romans 9:13) "I have loved you, saith the LORD. 
Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacobís brother? 
saith the LORD: YET I LOVED JACOB, AND I HATED ESAU, and laid his 
mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.

(Proverbs 6:16-19) These six things DOTH THE LORD HATE: yea, seven are 
an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that 
shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet 
that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh 
lies, and HE THAT SOWETH DISCORD AMONG BRETHREN.

[NB: Let us hope we are not sowing discord among ourselves!]

(Psalm 5:5) The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: THOU HATEST ALL 
WORKERS OF INIQUITY.

(Psalm 11:5) The LORD trieth the righteous: BUT THE WICKED AND HIM THAT 
LOVETH VIOLENCE HIS SOUL HATETH.

(JST Psalm 11:5) Behold his eyelids shall try the children of men, and 
he shall redeem the righteous, and they shall be tried. The Lord loveth 
the righteous, BUT THE WICKED, AND HIM THAT LOVETH VIOLENCE, HIS SOUL 
HATETH.
