Is it wrong to secretly feel that an acquaintance is acting hypocritically and making stupid decisions, but to just smile and nod when they talk, and not tell them what you really think?
Is it wrong to feel internally that you just plain don't LIKE someone -- their morals, their behavior, their attitude, their actions --- but you don't tell them, and you allow them to think that you are their friend? (You do this partly because you are afraid to tell someone to "go away", and you hope over time that they will just drift away from you, without you having to do the ugly job of telling them to go away. You also do it partly because this person, although morally repugnant, is somewhat entertaining and makes fun stories to tell your spouse later on.)
