Yes, there are certain phrases that are inherently self contradictory simply by the construction.
Like if someone said: I want to be an upstanding, moral, person, who always treats people honestly, endeavors to be fair, puts other people's interests above my own, and is generally kind and helpful, in order so that I can make a whole lot of money so that I can buy some bitchin' gear!
That wouldn't make a lot of sense.
Yet that's what the American Dream says, in essence.
I'm sure that God doesn't appreciate people dragging moral values through the mud like that.
