Pat Lawrence-Caldwell: These people are not Christians. They do not follow the tenets of Jesus but instead they are more like the Pharisees that Jesus had such low tolerance for because of their rigidness and self righteousness. Therefore just call these people what they really are: PHARISITES
KBP: So true – and I’ve often said this myself – this needs to be on billboards, as newspaper headlines, on NPR, on nightly news, shouted from soapboxes. I’d like to use your term PHARISITES if you wouldn’t mind because it is so right on target. These people do NOT reflect true Christian beliefs. One could say that they do not follow Christ but follow $$$[Satan].
