Thoughts not specifically about this from Fr. Richard Rohr

From Fr. Richard Rohr:
In Franciscan theology, the best criticism of the bad is the practice of the better. Just go ahead and do it better. If you really believe in the values you say you believe in, then put them into practice. Don't waste any time trying to prove someone else is wrong or evil. As it states in the popular paraphrase of St. Francis' Rule, "Preach the Gospel at all times, and when absolutely necessary, use words."
