"Any' or 'every': Which one should I use in the following sentences?

1- I am against everyone/anyone who hates people based on their skin colour and religion.

2- He loves me more than anyone else/everyone else does.

In sentence 2, you've used "anyone else" twice.

With "everyone", you are against them all as a group. With "anyone", you're against them individually. There's little practical difference in this sentence.
2- He loves me more than anyone else/everyone else does.
With "anyone", no single person love you more than he does. With "everyone", he loves you more than the total amount that every other person does.
See above. Don't capitalize the word after a colon unless it's a proper noun or I​.

Hi Goesstation, I did not get it fully :roll:. Does 'everyone else' in the second sentence mean 'everyone loves me but he loves me more'?
