The righteous mind is a moral mind that makes its judgments of moral depravity from a safe spot outside of life itself, by holding itself above the fray, above the mess, above the very truth of being human, the moral mind is a mind in exile from its own humanity. A moral mind can’t love, it can only condemn.
When that “moral mind” becomes a political party or a church, you then get “moral laws” that never heal anything but only tears life apart like a hungry tiger. A moral mind feeds on life, on other human beings without taking responsibility for the pain it causes. “God told me to do this, I’m innocent. You got a problem, take it up with God.”
