Words Poorly Used #89 -- Loyalty

Every definition of the word, loyalty, that I find suggests that the loyalty arises for cause.  Why do people who ask for loyalty seem to be holding a mental post-it note that adds "forever and in all events?"  Why did one minion want to qualify the idea by insisting on "honest loyalty?"  Was that an oxymoron to the requester?
