Spend time listening to fools, just to know what you are up against

.. but listen quietly please.
Nothing gets people more riled up than religion and people of other religions talking about them. I have been reading comments at Amazon.com on a book about a religion. It shall be nameless here because I don't want to do what the author probably intend to do, use controversy to draw attention to itself. But from the comments themselves, you can draw your own opinion of the people who are espousing them. Undoubtedly, the more ignorant the comment, the more entertaining. The problem is, the majority of the comments are entertaining.
I think the virtue of listening to fools is to know how not to sound like one.
