  You are so /judgmental/ and not even aware of it.

  Intelligent and thinking people can listen to arguments about something
  they do not personally /like/ and find cause for enjoyment of the line of
  reasoning even if it was used to support a argument they do not approve
  of.  Intelligent people think first and agree or disagree later.  Stupid
  people agree or disagree first and never think.

| Looking past even that aspect of it: I don't view things as "us vs. them"
| quite like you do.

  You are the /worst/ "us vs. them" person I have ever seen posting here.

  You also missed the point of that speech by a mile.

  I have been holding out on this, but you, sir, are an idiot.

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