animals of impulse

A friend was telling me about the lack of tolerance within her faith. Even in a mosque some people dare to tell others how to live their faith. My response is the following, which I thought came out rather well in one thought.

"Don't forget that we're all afraid of new ideas, the unknown or just about anything that contradicts us. Hence we get defensive and attack. We're mere animals of impulse when we feel threatened."
