With emotions, there is positive excitement (joy, affection...) and negative excitement (fear, rage...);
BUT there is also "calmness/relaxation". The lack of excitement/passion/emotion.So, even the stable state of being between the excitement is slightly more positive than negative since it does not hurt the body like the negative excitement does.If humanity was all loving, we would help each other to survive
If we were all calm, we'd still have a better chance to survive (without the destructive ones)
If we were all destructive, we would be destroying ourselves...
So even though it may seem like God is "without opinion or action" - it would seem that God has favored "positivity" over negativity ( by AT LEAST a little bit).
If God is creative, and only positive will help survival and procreate (creative), while negativity is destructive and not creative, then it would seem to me that God has favored love/positivity. What do you think of this?

Satan is one of God's creations. If I hate Satan than I have failed to understand his purpose. If I can understand the purpose than I can overcome the accusation. Love is the path to understanding, so yes you should forgive God, even for creating Satan. You should always love God's creation because everything was created to reveal love in us.
