  •  Maybe not, Christianity (2+ / 0-)

    Christianity never claims that it is a magic pill to make men perfect.

    But a lot of Christians sure do. Of course, I guess perfection isn't needed when you have vicarious salvation through someone else's (Jesus Christ) bloody(pagan)sacrifice. Social conservatives and the religious right have been talking out of both sides of their mouths for years in American politics. Saying "love the sinner, hate the sin". Saying "No one is perfect", but actively waging campaigns to shame gays, teen aged mothers (until Bristol Palin) and anyone who doesn't meet their puritanical sexual ideals.

    And I think there is an argument to made that your actions speak more about what you really believe then any belief you profess verbally. If Sanford really believed that adultery was bad, he wouldn't have become an adulterer. Lots of people both religious and secular manage to not betray their spouses.
