I have mentioned many times that if you have to redefine common terms - patriot, racist, supremacist - in order to prove your point it is an admission you can't win on the merits. Cults do this with words like atonement, and especially love. I had thought of a humorous example about a year ago, but couldn't remember it this morning after waking too early, and eventually just got up. I finally brought it back to mind after two hours. It's not as funny as I remembered, but it's not a bad example. And even if it's terrible, I'm posting it anyway, in honor of this morning's frustration.
"So when I tell my patient she has outstanding charges, she should be happy about that?"
