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.

@Greatest I am,
All religions are full of good and bad, just like humanity. People pick and choose the parts they like and follow, creating their own path as they go. They are meaningless subtexts for people’s natural preferences.

While I don't necessarily agree with your first sentence, the rest of it is spot on.
Especially the quote above.


(not to say I believe all religions are bad, but I'm confident there have been religions in the past that had no redeeming value. I would have to research)

You could say that nature is authoritarian. The clouds don't ask for a vote before dumping their water down on you. A predator doesn't ask permission from its prey before attacking and devouring it. Yet mercy, grace, forgiveness, etc. are also experienced in nature. Is it hypocrisy that nature can simultaneously be merciless in some ways and show mercy, grace, and forgiveness in others? Maybe from one human perspective you possess the capacity to think of it in terms of hypocricy, but from another perspective it is just the complex nature of reality.
