The characteristic I hate most in people - hypocrites
:grr:

Nothing is more irritating than for someone to say one thing and then turn around and do just that thing they spoke out against.

:grr:

1. I agree.
They usually fall in the catagory of religious fundamentalists.

2. They fall in all categories
Even progressive thinkers can show the trait from time to time. But you're right, it's more in fundies

3. I think we can all be hypocritical at times.
I try my best not to be, b/c like you, I can't stand that trait in a person. It pisses me off beyond belief.

4. the way i heard a repug radio-talker tell it-
"...it's better to be a hypocrite, than to have no values at all..."

-he was 'defending' henry hyde over allegations of being a hypocrite for chastising clinton over infidelity, when henry had been a 'home-wrecker', dating a married woman(he too was married at the time, i believe) when he was younger.

8. Agreed. They are also my most favorite people to despise.
P.S. Good to meet you, albeit briefly, on Saturday.

9. Do I contradict myself?
So, I contradict myself.
(I am large. I contain multitudes.)

10. People contradict themselves all the time
and most of the time it's accidental. But sometimes it is out and out blatant hypocrisy that just makes you cringe
