Brad White 6 Comments Hypocrisy in the Christian church is a huge problem.
Bush chief speechwriter, senior Republican policy adviser and reliable Beltway Republican stalactite, Michael Gerson, to take up his quill and proclaim that his Republican Party just all of the sudden became a racist shitpile a couple of years ago.
It today's exciting episode, Mr. Gerson -- whose business is words -- pretends that he does not understand what the word "exposes" means: Gerson -- who has worn his Conservative evangelical Christian bona fides on his sleeve right next to his "Ride or Die Republican" credentials for his entire adult life -- really wants you to believe that he had no fcking idea that Christian Republicans are, in fact, Christopath Republicans until about 10 minutes ago.
By the way, funny story: Michael Gerson was being paid to put words in George W. Bush's mouth and thoughts into George W. So they've got that goin' for them. So I really cannot emphasize enough how gallows-humor absurd it is to watch Mr.

The Hypocrisy of the Apostasy , AM Mormons believe that the Church that Jesus founded fell into total apostasy in the 1st century, yet the Bible as we know it wasn't compiled for at least another century by the Catholic Church and the King James Version of the Bible, which Mormons use, wasn't produced until the 17th century.
Christian Hypocrisy Hypocrisy is “claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform; pretense.” 1 In fact, the ancient Greek word comes from the word for a stage actor or one who wears a mask.
