What did you expect?
Just a reminder here: Our virtual parish belongs to a branch of religion broadly referred to as Christian Mysticism. Our brand comes with certain assumptions. When your moral orientation starts with the assumption that mankind is fallen, and you live in a world that denies it, there should be no surprise that you shift away from common expectations. Have you noticed how folks get emotionally engaged in stuff that no one can fix?
Seriously, folks — stop and consider the logic of our Christian Mysticism. Yes, mysticism does have a logic. It’s a different logic, but that’s no reason to say it isn’t logic at all just because it starts with wholly different assumptions. You should learn to distinguish between “different” and “wrong.” In the logic of Christian Mysticism we don’t go out of our way projecting an expectation of bad things from everyone so as to provoke those bad things. We know that most folks will tend to do okay most of the time, but we always keep in mind that we don’t expect very much because we know our own sins.
