6. But WE weren't going to leave anybody behind.
And that, I think, is the essential difference. These selfish bastards were happy to do so.

It's like the time I was ushering a hit off-Broadway show and a man came down the stairs at the Village Gate and slapped down two tickets and a fifty dollar bill, saying "I want the best seats in the house." He didn't care who I had to displace to earn my bribe. I took the fifty and the tickets and looked at the tickets. They were already for the best seats in the house. "No problem," I said, and put the money in my pocket.

By the rules of their faith, they already had tickets. But they didn't trust those rules, and they wanted to cheat. So screw 'em.
