Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin

I ran across the phrase lately, and it suddenly occurred to me that it didn't sound like Jesus, so I checked.

Actually, it's St. Augustine, and he thought the love part was expressed by being reluctant to discover the faults it must punish. It's hard to imagine a modern person saying that last bit, but maybe I'm spending too much time online.
