What people do is act according to their fear and then rationalize their religion to suit.
This is why much of the Church is inadequate but no one ever admits it.
People have a fear of those who are different or those who have greater needs.
But, rather than confronting their fear and overcoming it, they hide beneath a facade of respectability. They may even say they are helping when they are not.
And what makes them do this but fear.
Fear of being overwhelmed, fear of failing to cope, fear of being seen to transgress God's commandments, fear of being ostracized by their peers.
So they lie.
They lie to you and they lie to themselves.
Then no one will ever know.
