35. It struck me listening to a very well off Christian friend who has been moaning about money...

And more money than I would ever need, has to have all material goods of 'the highest quality.'

Nothing can do for anyone or anything but wait for the Second Coming. Gotta resist taxes, hold onto to everything for me and mine, because thing are going to get bad. Fearmongering is the perfect excuse for avarice.

See how that works?

When people are confronted with their own demise, some want to give everything away. Some want to hold onto so tight, as if they won't die at all.

The Left Behind crowd is the worst, IMO. In practical matters, such as the environment, they care nothing for the Earth. Because they say they are 'not to love the Earth or anything in it.'

So what does it matter if all other life forms are swept away, it was gonna happen anyway. The fact that they could have saved some lives by their side or elsewhere, meh, not their fault.

Sort of like cynicisim and not voting. 'See, it was all going to fail, anyway. I was smart and didn't put my heart out there to be hurt, I stood back and saved my energy. And now, I'm right!'

People are wonderful at rationalizing things.
