If you pay any attention to what passes for political or cultural discourse, you’ll notice that it generally consists of thinking as badly of others as possible, and expressing your disgust as pointedly as possible.

This is the exact opposite of what St. Makarios the Great exhorts us to do:

Christians should judge no one, neither an open harlot, nor sinners, nor dissolute people, but should look upon all with simplicity of soul and a pure eye. Purity of heart, indeed, consists in seeing sinful and weak men and having compassion for them and being merciful.
