Green Speech #12
We learned yesterday, that a person feels justified, vindicated when saying something derogatory, damaging, hurtful about another because they will think that it’s okay because it is true.
We also learned that in truth that is prohibited by Jewish law. The problem is that is normal and likely that people will repeat anything that comes into their purview especially when they think it is true.
Another common rationalization is that often you will find “reason” to consider the subject of your Loshon Hara as deserving of it. You don’t really like the person so much, you find fault with them,
you are bothered by them and it becomes so easy to speak badly about them.
