Does it matter where?
And does it matter who "they" are?
And does it matter what the "things" might be?
It's just a stupid way of thinking.
We could make quite a list of activities that are "generally accepted," indeed, that most good, average people occasionally, (if regrettably) engage in themselves, but that any good person is "against."
That is the nature of sin.
But this is the contects of the title:
Bloc Quebecois party leader Gille Duceppe has issued comments attacking the Conservative Party, calling Prime Minister Stephen Harper a "right -wing ideologue" and saying that the party's running of an MP candidate who is a member of the Catholic group, Opus Dei, is proof of the Conservative Party's narrow-mindedness.
Today, referring to Nicole Charbonneau Barron, who is the Conservative candidate in the South Shore Montreal riding of St. Bruno-St. Hubert, and is a member of the Catholic group Opus Dei, Duceppe said, "My problem is that Opus Dei is a rather secret society... Those people certainly share an ideology, a narrow ideology, that doesn't correspond at all to the modern times in Quebec."
The Opus Dei website describes the group as a "personal prelature of the Catholic Church that helps people seek holiness in their work and ordinary activities." Being a Catholic organization, the group denounces contraception, abortion and same-sex "marriage."
"I'm not saying they don't have the right [to run]. What I am saying is that those people are against a lot of things that are generally accepted in Quebec," continued Duceppe.
Hypocrisy has gotten a bad rap, IMO..., or rather, it is an insult often flung where it is undeserved.
We are all sinners (unless the Blessed Mother is your new neighbor?)
The sinners who are pleased with their sins naturally resent the sinners who, though mindful of their own sinfulness, yet still have the fortitude to denounce sin.
