In this Article, I will first examine the facts of the Pentecostal Church case, where the above quoted offensive language was used by the Puerto Rico Supreme Court (I). Later I will illustrate the reaction this language produced (II). Following this, I will briefly comment on the benefits and limits of a more conciliatory manner of expression (III). Finally, I will raise some questions as to whether the therapeutic jurisprudence movement should venture into conflicts where the parties are, in effect, testing out their respective political strengths or if it should concentrate on the more traditional fields that have earned it a name in legal literature (IV).
