Whyfor the difference? Dr. Ford became a healer, Mark Judge became hypocritically pious. Perhaps this is a matter of inborn character. Perhaps. But I wonder if seeking to steeping himself in the hypocritical pieties of the Roman Catholic Church led Judge to embrace his narcissism. The liberalism of California, I think, did far better by Dr. Ford.
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you cross sea and land to make a single convert, and you make the new convert twice as much a child of hell as yourselves. – Matthew 23
