How the Self-Righteous Exclude Others...

"The good and the just...have to crucify the one who devises an alternative virtue because they already possess the knowledge of the good; they have to be hypocrites because, seeing themselves as good, they must impersonate the absence of evil. Like poisonous flies, 'they sting' and they do so 'in all innocence.' Exclusion can be as much a sin of a 'good conscience' as it is of an 'evil heart.'" --Miroslav Volf
