A Meditation on Faith: Scapegoating

The evils of finger-pointing run much broader and deeper than… and are more consequential than… the childish avoidance of blame…

The dishonesty, unwarranted hostility, rejection of responsibility, and bigotry… all bundled into a popular and convenient excuse for one’s lack of success… are not just transgressions against others, but transgressions against oneself…

… a justification of victimhood.

… a glorification of impotence.

… a celebration of one’s failure to become fully human.
