Separate, Segregate, Destroy (the mentally ill)!!

I've recently answered to a post about a lady asking whether she should marry a man with a schizophrenic parent but who doesn't have schizophrenia himself because she fears that it may occur in him later. There have also been posts saying that people usually advise others to stay away from the mentally ill as they try to take you down in their own hell. Now I ask you, would you remain distant from your loved one and start hating them if he/she gets mentally ill?

It's like cancer, or aids, or arthritis, or a trauma victim, almost all of them disabled for life, all of them in need of support and constant care, all of them in need of medical help, all of them in need of counselling and in need of a system to reintegrate them back into this society in the best way possible. And you try to get away from them, separate them from yourself, separate them from this world into their own world!...It's like trying to destroy what you don't like, what you hate. You say you love them, but are not sure whether you should be with them! Is that love? Love is pure, eternal, unscathed by all presupposed notions, love does not instill the fear of self destruction, it is the fear that is there in the minds, is it not? It's the fear that stops you from loving, fearful is what you are, not in love, not loving...

And in some it turns to hate! It's like destroy what is not like us, destroy the people who think different, who act different...and there evolves a personal taliban, destruction of those who try to bring about change, destruction of those whom you cannot understand...but as the it goes on to say..."The Tao is hidden and without name. The Tao alone nourishes and brings everything to fulfillment."
Hatred can never stay on forever, fear has to give way to love sooner or later..."After a time of decay comes the turning point." The decay will be there, only after that does the turning point come...
