I hold myself in contempt

Jim Carey, in the movie, Liar Liar, was threatened by the judge that he would be held in contempt. Jim Carey shouted,

"I hold myself in contempt!"

It's one of my favorite movie lines. I want to hold myself in contempt of a lot of things. I want to have scorn for evil, for sin, for things that are self and other destructive. I want to leave some things behind because I am disgusted with them.

I would like to live a life in which I would be held in contempt:


Consumerism
Greed
Apathy
Ignorance
Selfishness
Social Blindness
Churchism (Churchianity)
Insane Individualism
Fear
Lust
Prejudice
Pride

Care to add to the list?

I love the word "Churchianity." It says a lot, doesn't it?
