Cynicism is easy. Criticism is easy. Sitting back and taking potshots is easy. Disbelief is also easy. In a world of distrust, cynicism and general negativity, God help the soul who ventures a theory or an original idea or a belief. That's fresh meat before the lions. An honest critique seeks to understand what is being proffered and then analyzes the same in light of reason or theology or form and substance or history and so forth. Cheap shots come from a attitude of general disbelief or suspicion or a smug attitude of superiority and certainly not from a heart of love and understanding.
