I did not say that they hate materialism in itself, only that they despise materialism as a foundation for their lives.
This is obscurantist nonsense. I did not say that they hate McDonald's hamburgers, only that they despise McDonald's hamburgers as a foundation for dinner. Oh please. Take a trip to The Vatican, observe with your own eyes the Pontiff's obvious disdain for the trappings of his estimated 500 billion, and then come back when you have something rational to say.
Such anger.
Ahhh... the trump card is finally played. Luckily for a passionate, emotional, warm-blooded rationalist like me, my feelings have no bearing on the truth. Nice comeback, though.
