The "enemy" outside can not hurt us, if there's no "enemy" within.
Pope Francis Jan. 15, 2017 lamented that some people are quite good at masking their true faith and like to pretend that they are true children of God, when their love for Him is made out of nothing but empty words and greed. He described these people as "Christian parrots.”
Human beings, for the most part, are reactionary, the model, the judging from afar, rather than being activist in a quest for the communion of souls. Modeled by partisanship in politics, rather than the affinity of understanding others. A society grounded in fear, hatred and mistrust of thy neighbor, depicted in a resentful passing eye. Eyes that see ethnicity, sexual orientation, or Ideology first and never the heart. Ears that hear what it wants and not what it needs to quantify righteousness in the soul. And through the freedom of speech, an emancipated mouth which knows no limit, encapsulating the creed of cultism ...... succinctly.
