Why the Condescension?

I find it puzzling that so many famous and less famous Catholic theological conservatives are, in varying degrees, so pompous, condescending, and patronizing. The late Fr. Richard Neuhaus comes to mind as does the still active George Weigel. Then there are the legions of superorthodox bloggers who can't resist revealing the definitive truth to us on all matters large and small from their little Mt. Sinai's, which are in fact little Towers of Babel.

This pompous and patronizing style is not even remotely Christian. We have a great paradox here.
