Hypocrisy: Oh no, I’ll Never Understand


F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, ‘The test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in the mind at the same time, and still retain the ability to function’. While I might take exception to his choice of the word ‘intelligence’, he was certainly correct. Human beings have an incredible ability to function while committing the very heinous acts they loudly decry. Somehow, we can be incredibly hypocritical without bursting into flame or something of the like.

As I’ve listened to your stories of mind-blowing abuse, one story worse than the last, the hypocrisies of the human race have reached the boiling point in my mind. This blog posting is a letting off of steam.


I will never understand why a parent would leave their child in the care of someone they know is a paeodophile.

I will never understand why children are pressured to forgive the person who sexually abused them.

I will never understand why children are shamed for being sexually abused.

I will never understand why parents continue to be friendly with the person who raped their child.

I will never understand how someone who talks loudly about God would commit rape.

Oh no, I will never understand.

I will never understand how a parent could ‘tut-tut’ about child abuse while abusing their own child.

I will never understand how a father can sexually abuse his own children.

I will never understand how a mother can sexually abuse her own children.

I will never understand why a sexual abuser will shame their victim for no longer being a virgin.

I will never understand why counsellors once accused innocent children of seducing the paedophile who abused them.

I will never understand why an adult will still fraternise with the person who sexually abused them.

Oh no, I will never understand.

I will never understand why the worst abuse is perpetrated by those who are supposed to love you the most.

I will never understand why ‘family’ is so damn toxic.

I will never understand a mother being jealous of her daughter.

I will never understood a mother seducing her daughter’s man.

I will never understand a father undermining his son’s manhood.

I will never understand parents who set their children up to fail.

I will never understand parents who delight in their children’s struggles and failures.

I will never understand parents refusing to acknowledge their children’s successes.

I will never understand why extended family don’t help the victims of known abuse in their own extended families, their nieces, nephews, cousins, grandchildren.

Oh no, I will never understand.

I will never understand conceiving a child merely as a ‘living paycheque’ to gain child support.

I will never understand ripping a child from a loving parent’s arms (parental alienation.)

I will never understand good parents losing their children and the courts forcing abused kids back into the home with their abusive parent(s).

Oh no, I will never understand.

I will never understand adopting a child for the sole purpose of abusing and enslaving them.

I will never understand paedophiles being approved as foster parents.

I will never understand how paedophiles can live with themselves.

I will never understand how a paedophile can glibly speak the word ‘God’ without spontaneously combusting or at least going red in the face.

Oh no, I will never understand.

I will never understand why people choose to believe falsehoods, full well knowing they are falsehoods.

I will never understand how ‘truth’ can be treated so cavalierly.

I will never understand how ‘what I want to be true’ can possibly trump ‘what is actually true’.

Oh no, I will never understand.

I will never understand obituaries and eulogies extolling the virtues of people we all know to be abusers, miscreants and generally nasty people.

I will never understand why it’s wrong to speak ill of the dead.

I will never understand why it’s wrong to tell the truth.

Oh no, I will never understand.

I will never understand this life.

I will never understand people.

The best I can do is to try to get through this life as peacefully and happily as I may.

Keeping a sharp eye out lest I commit hypocrisy myself.
