Whenever we are critical of another and have a nega tza'aros within us, it projects through a lashon hara unto others. For a person will be on the attack and focus on paganism or things about other faiths and use strong words against them such as calling them "wicked" or something like that. For as our sages say when a person speaks lashon hara the attributes they tie to another person and are accusatory of them doing is actually the attributes of the person who is speaking the lashon hara and not the one whom they project it onto. So essentially when a person speaks lashon hara about someone the fact is they seem very knowledgeable about the one they speak out about because essentially they are speaking about themselves and not the other person yet they are not honest enough in a sense to say "I have this issue" so instead it is projected onto the one they hate.
This my friends is prime example my friends why the satan is known as the accuser of the brethren. This is also why it says frequently in scripture and Torah She Be'al Peh to stray away from idle words and speak nothing that doesn't give Hashem glory, thus the only language and thoughts profitable are things that are edifying as Rav Sha'ul said in Philippians 4:8 and Galatians 5:22-23
