Don’t let the bastards grind you down! Especially, don’t give into loutish Patristic-spouting ignoramuses who have an “edifying” word for the world. Those pompous and arrogant poseurs won’t listen… so don’t try to reason with them. God may set them straight, but you or I can’t. Almost as bad are the “conservative” nutters. Their ideology is pure Liberalism, but you won’t be able to convince them of that, no matter how well you frame your statements. They truly believe that their Free Market fantasies are “conservative”…. they truly do.
Don’t argue with idiots. Oppose them. We’re Christians; that’s what we do…
