Intemperate Reply

This fellow - obewan - commented on TJIC's blog. The following reply I judged to be too intemperate for someone else's house.
Why do people keep missing the virtue present in simple austerity?
Hey, Obewan, who made you the spiritual Jello Sheriff? Were you elected the Grand Poo-Bah of Morality? Did someone die and elect you Pope?

No? Good. You don't get to lecture on morality. You don't get to decide whose way is best or what is a moral responsibility.

Lecture all you want to - it's a free country. But damn if I'll do anything but fling it back in your face for your troubles.

When you have groked this in fullness you will understand the American Way.
