    self-righteous piety, and hypocrisy.

    Because ALL people fall, and if you're one of the self-appointed "righteous" and you have a following, and you fall PUBLICLY, then the church body suffers.

    Followers LEAVE.  And potential new followers stay away.

    •  What on earth does RW "Christianity" (10+ / 0-)

      have to do with Christ or his teachings? To the extent that they have anything to do with the bible, it's all old testament stuff, and mostly the stuff that even most Jews have long since rejected, like stoning gays and kids who talk back to their parents. They pick and choose the parts they like, stick Christ in front of it to give it cred, and call it "Christianity". It's not. It's religious fascism with lousy PR.

        being idiots.  Remember, in Judaism it is actually a sin (or something close) to stop taking your blood pressure medicine over passover because it contains a normally forbidden ingredient (though asking your doctor if he can switch you to something else is a different matter, of course).
