Atticus tries to love everyone:

"I certainly am. I do my best to love everybody... I'm hard put, sometimes—baby, it's never an insult to be called what somebody thinks is a bad name. It just shows you how poor that person is, it doesn't hurt you." (Chapter 11)

He is just, compassionate, charitable, and loving. I think that sums up the Biblical ideal of a good and just man.
