With ironic respect. Should we thank God that religionists are such hypocrites?

The religions that offer a supernatural God are basically authoritarian religions with tyrannical Gods.

They are quite divisive and if Christians and Muslims do not do things just right, they get to burn forever in in a purposeless hell. Yahweh and Allah are mean demiurges.

In terms of following their religions to the letter, I see both Christians and Muslims as being quite hypocritical and I thank all the Gods for that.

If Christians and Muslims did live by the barbaric ideals their religions and Gods wanted, the inquisitions and jihads would force the rest of us to eliminate those fouls religions for reasons of self-defence.

Let us thank all the good Gods that Christians and Muslims do not practice their religions and are such hypocrites. Let us thank all the Gods that Christians and Muslims are moral enough to be hypocrites and only give lip service to their vile religious ideologies and imaginary Gods.

How many Christians are hypocrites? This link says the vast majority right at the beginning of the link, and I would say that the same number applies to Muslims even though their mosque attendance is higher than the Christian one due to culture more than religion.

Yeah, I've always found the idea that God is so insecure to be a little odd. He's obsessed with being worshiped.

He's unfair, violent and greedy. How does anyone believe in a deity like that?
I hear you. Morals seem to be the last thing on the mind of idol worshipers.

Being the most insecure animal on the planet, security and power seem to be what we want as well and to hell with our morals.

I've always picture God (the OT version) as being a hard right conservative & Jesus being a social Democrat. But then I look around & see Christians & they're sooooo mean! I'm like, have you read anything Jesus wrote?

But as you say in the OP, hypocrisy probably keeps most religious authoritarians in check. But then again, we have found out on many occasions the most sinful of high profile Christian leaders are often preaching the gospel of fire and brimstone, particularly when it comes to homosexuality.

Yes. Along with their misogyny.

People forget that the main focus of insecure tribes, like religions, is protection and growth against the dreaded, --- others.

Part of that protection and hate against the others is making sure that they go to hell. This link shows just how much they love to hate. I shows Christians moving en mass from a preacher who decided to tell the truth, there is no hell, while his parishioners wanted to maintain their lie that there was really a hell when they were being told the morality of why there was no such place.

I'm not quite as excited about it, but I do agree that it's a good thing that the Abrahamic religions no longer attempt to strictly adhere to Biblical law.

We probably would have to kill them off if they attempted to do so.
