    That's because, for most people, religion is just a security blanket. They treat it like a light switch. On when they really need it. Off most of the time and never introspective about their own behavior because it's just there to comfort them.

    Even as someone of a Christian background myself, you might be right, but religion is more than just comfort, it's to give me a sense of purpose in life.

    Again, did anyone read the article I posted?

    These people seek praise or to be thought as a "good" person. They never heard of "deeds not words". Christian scolds are not fooling anybody.

    99% of the time it gives them their justification to hate/discriminate on those they don't like. The Evangelical Christian Death Cults are all perfect example of hating because Jesus said so. Without their hate (enemies) they would turn on each other.
