I'm thinking you need to be a David Koresh or a Jim Jones to be a "complete asshole". The description hardly
applies to JC.

How do you know that?

How do I know what the word "complete" means to me in this context?


No, how do you know Koresh (or any cult leader) is an asshole but JC is not? If the text describes JC saying asshole-ish things like other cult leaders say why do you selectively discount that bit of the text as "obviously not literal"?
