We have to address Intimidation. To intentional behave in any way that would cause harm to another person or to instill fear of injury to receive pleasure or to achieve something to one's own satisfaction is wrong.
We can't teach children to respect each other and refrain from bullying when they see such behavior among adults. All of the efforts that are done will make the job of those of us in society who wants to stop bullying very difficult.
Jesus taught that one should treat others with the same respect they want to receive. Whether for religious or political purposes, or for any reason one might feel the need to intimidate others to achieve something, in the end there is nothing of value to be gained.
But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: Matthew 5: 22 (K.J.V)
