And that hate is understandable. Many would rather use cash or debit cards.

I hate credit cards. I don't like using money I don't have. That's why I use debit instead.— Unlimited Hex Works (@tsunrude) July 9, 2014
After all, credit cards are debt instruments that charge huge interest rates and come with a zillion fees.
But credit cards serve an important purpose.
God I hate credit cards, I wish they weren't necessary for good credit.— John without Athon (@JohnNoAthon) July 3, 2014
Establishing good credit is an important element of personal finance. A good credit score means lower interest rates on home and auto loans, whereas a bad credit score could mean the difference between getting a job or not, since many employees eliminate job applicants with poor credit histories.
Credit cards are tools. Hating credit cards is like hating hammers. If you accidentally hit your finger with a hammer, it's not the hammer's fault.
When used wisely, credit cards offer benefits that cash and debit simply can't. Responsible credit card use boils down to buying things you can afford and paying off your balance every month. It's easier said than done, of course, but it's well worth doing.
So hopefully one day more of us will be saying this:
