  1. משנה תורה, הלכות עבודה זרה פרק י,ו
    וכן אסור לספר בשבחן, ואפילו לומר כמה נאה גוי זה בצורתו; קל וחומר שיספר בשבח מעשיו, או שיחבב דבר מדבריהם: שנאמר "ולא תחונם" (דברים ז,ב)--לא יהיה להם חן בעיניך, מפני שגורם להידבק עימו וללמוד ממעשיו הרעים.

    Mishneh Torah, Laws of Avodah Zarah 10:6
    And it is forbidden to praise them, even to say how pleasant a non-Jew is in form; even more so to praise his deeds, or to like any of his things, as it is said, "Lo techonem" (Deut. 7:2). You should not like them, as it would cause him to become attached to them, and to learn from their bad deeds.
