Your daily sanctimony

Rick Esenberg, meanwhile, quotes St. Paul to point out the reality that we are all sinners.
Speak for yourselves, I guess.

It's quite remarkable indeed, the quantity of embedded, unproven assumptions which can be detected in one brief sentence: "Saint," "reality," "we," and "sinners" in this case, the latter all by itself containing a whole host (pun intended) of unproven assumptions.

More to the point: Yes, please, give it a rest.
