"Love the sinner, hate the sin" - is this Christian?

Dear Brothers in Christ,

I heard that "Love the sinner hate the sin" mantra was initially uttered by Gandhi to expound on some principles of Indian non-Christian religious systems. I wonder whether it corresponds to the teaching of Jesus Christ?

love the sinner?

I heard that D.L. Moody started saying this.
If it were true, let's look at who God loves: satan and all of the fallen angels, evil demons, false prophets of all time. Mohammed, Joseph Smith, Sun Yun Moon, Hitler, Stalin, Manson, every child molester that has ever lived. All murderers, rapists, drug dealers, and all humans that have ever lived and refused to submit to His divine love and mercy, and provision.
Divine love: ask all of the people in hell about it.
Why does He not love some, not because of Himself because He is love, but because there is nothing loveable in them.
