That's a useful point - all the examples given definitely fall into that category.

Of course not. `-` Though how he feels about other Christians has been up and 
down. I get the feeling that he'd stay away from the thing the right wing does, 
attacking others' holiness to prove how holy they are; he feels more like a 
tragic hero, trying to do the right thing but locked into a dogmatic viewpoint 
that sees other people having their own agency as wrong.

(I mean, he's also an asshole about it, don't get me wrong. A tragic asshole.)

Andrew "NO .SIG MAN" "Juan" Perron, a traghole?
