Moral Policing Hypocrisy


“Many teachings advocate repressing desire in pursuit of ideals. Then, believers seek obscure loopholes in their beliefs in order to indulge in forbidden fruits [hypocrisy.] Women accused of immorality in orthodox cultures are shamed, beaten, groped, raped and, even, killed by fanatics [hypocrisy] pointing at religious justifications. Such gross rationalizations for anger and lust continue even as believers condemn the violence, but cower before challenging the beliefs. The moderates seem almost invisible behind those individuals who compel attention with radical and, often, violent behavior.”
