Eupocrisy

It’s not often one gets to coin a word. But I got to a few years ago when trying to describe the behavior of people who are better than their rhetoric (such as, f’rinstance, atheists who loudly proclaim that there is no God and the universe is just an idiot machine without meaning, but who then fall back into outraged defences of the dignity of the human person when children are raped by priests or blown up by terrorists). I call this phenomenon “eupocrisy“. It’s as rampant as hypocrisy, which is one of my secret sources of hope.
