    For those who engage in special pleading for a belief are inclined to submit moralism for intellectual integrity.

    Intellectual integrity breathes clean, fresh air, while moralism breathes the fetid air of the swamp.

    And those who engage in special pleading want to choke us on the fetid air of the swamp.

    You're not trying to pull the wool over my eyes, are you?

    Do you happen to be a Christian, like myself, Lark?

    Your commitment to a particular brand of Christianity is interesting, but what might be more interesting would be to explore your psyche, to explore your psychological life.

    To be a member of a site devoted to psychology and focus obsessively on the beliefs of a particular sect of Christianity, would suggest you are not only pulling the wool over our eyes but over your own eyes as well.

    That wouldn't be more interesting.

    Why do you say "particular brand"?

    History has given us many different types of Christianity, from Orthodox to Catholic, to Anglicans, to Protestant, to the Latter Day Saints, to Jehovah's Witnesses, to Evangelicals, to the Prosperity Gospel, to the Pentecostals, and many more.

    And it is obvious to me you use a particular form of speech that is used in a particular sect. But what is annoying is that you imply you are not a member of a particular sect. Unfortunately you insult our intelligence.

    Pardon me. I (try to) practice Christianity, the pure religion as Christ taught it.

    What do you mean I use a particular form of speech? Which one is that?
