Such self- righteous people are likely to be contentious about the criteria and about the application of the criteria regarding dichotomous decisions about: in/out; either/or, yes/no, good/evil, right/wrong, moral/immoral, accepted/rejected, favored/excommunicate; than they are likely to be interested in charitably resolving unresolved conflicts between unbalanced values, ideals and principles. People who do not value balance, open and honest dialogue, personal integrity or communal integrity --- are bound to sacrifice them when push comes to shove. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in Download it!
