"In the Clint Eastwood movie "High Plains Difter", Clint was coming up against a whole town of people who had a dark secret they thought they had safely hidden, but he knew their secret and was about to expose them. A woman he was with warned him that the people were afraid, and she said, “that makes them dangerous”. Clint’s reply was, “It’s what people know about themselves inside that makes them afraid”.

You illuminate the darkness, Christian, and it makes people afraid. Not all of them will react violently or bitterly toward you; especially in our age of political correctness and phoney politeness. Most will change the subject, or excuse themselves and move away, or listen quietly with some embarrassment and say the words they think you want to hear; but the truth remains the same; they are darkness. They love the darkness rather than the light, for their deeds are evil. You make them afraid."
