There is something to being addressed as a Pastor and then have acid poured on your face. Something intensely forlorn and anguished. Of course the same may be said cynically or sarcastically, but then it would sound different to the ear. One would perceive a threat in the tone. The idea and a dastardly one at that, is to as we say in India attack with love (प्रेम से मारना/prem se marna = to kill with love; हमला करना/prem se hamla karna = to attack with love). Such dastardliness is not mere cowardice, it is a contemptible meanness rooted in a hollow interior existence and shows up in other forms including in individuals with halos apparently intact, as far as the mind can perceive.
