Is it wrong to address everyone with affection?
Using words such as dear, love, honey, babe, etc?

That's pretty dicey in the brave new "woke" world. So I just wouldn't.

I use 'love' all the time, I don't think its wrong, its quite pleasant.

I like it personally- but others do not. Today at work one of the other servers said that she has been complained about on numerous occasions because she calls customers "hun" or "sweetie". Some female customers become really defensive if you call their husband "hun". It just makes some people feel uncomfortable.

it is to the people that dont want to be addressed like that

Yes. Affectionate terms are only appropriate in informal settings/relationships. where as many require you to address formally to show respect. For example calling your priest or minister "babe" or the person you are interviewing with for your next job as, "honey", probably wouldn't go over well.

It would be stupid to address 'everyone' that way.

Not in business and only for a family member.

Its not wrong, but some weak people get offended easily
Apparently, we have to take their fragility into consideration, as if it's like giving up a seat to a pregnant woman
