A thought, based on many a conversation with people who are eager to point out the faults, nay, the evils in others, as seen from the perspective of their religion, political stance or sexual orientation, especially if their religion, political stance or sexual orientation differs from that of the others. Ok, let’s be honest. Nine out of ten times, it’s about religion. Any religion.
“All those evils that you identify so easily. You seem so … so …”
“Not quite what I was looking for. More like … um …”
“Dedicated? Skilled? Divinely perceptive?”
“I was thinking more along the lines of ‘competitive’.”
