Is your msg a joke, or are you just trying to be hypercritical?

As to which, you are a smart person; you can figure it out.

I unfortunately seriously misjudged the possibility of negative reaction to such an idea. Of course no one has a monoply of acting badly in the name of religion, but criticizing questionable religious behavior is not to everyone's liking.

To those who were offended, my apologies; to those who weren't my apologies.
