  You seem to have a knack for engaging the critics.  Why is that?  Would they
  not, according to your own standards, be likely to be /less/ hostile if they
  did not always have someone like you come up and brand them as immoral and
  evil and whatnot when they lose their patience after spending a lot of time
  trying to help someone?  Have you no empathy for those who find that their
  goodwill is abused by these morons, only for the morons who so abuse it when
  they are criticized for it?  Perhaps you create more morons by defending them?

Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
