Even when a direct accusation is obviously false and indefensible, it is possible to successfully assassinate the character of a person of integrity, by innuendoes suggesting that they have not been faithful to legalistic requirements ostensibly designed to fulfill high ideals and motivations. It is important to obscure the difference between being faithful to legalistic requirements, moral codes, ethical rules, etc. and being motivated and guided by Love which has the power to cast out the fear of rejection. If faithfulness to legalistic rules can successfully be confused with faithfulness to integrative love, then people of integrity can be assassinated by suggesting that they have not fulfilled every letter of such legalistic rules, and further suggesting that lack of faithfulness demonstrates evil ideals and motivation. The suggestions must not be explicit, for if they are made explicit they will appear absurd. When a person of integrity is the victim of imputation of evil ideals and motivations, it is helpful to ask for the imputations to be made open and explicit, so that the allegations may be openly and honestly examined to see if they merit respect. Legalists attacks on lovers are best responded to by asking for explication of the legalists' principles, ideals, values, and motivations; and by openly explicating the integrative principles, ideals, values and motivations which give power and direction to loving behavior which transcends the narrow perspective of legalists. If lovers stoop to play legalists' battles according to the rules of legalists, the lovers will cease to be lovers, and become legalists in need of salvation from their rules. Lovers have the power to offer that salvation through love which can cast out the tragic fear of rejection by freely offering to be unconditionally accepting of other people as people while clearly recognizing behavior which is alienative; i.e., evil.
