C'mon, man, if you're being honest with yourself and everybody else,  
you've got to admit that you're just choosing to overlook how creepy  
the whole package is *specifically because of* the bizarre belief  
system and the totally artificial, strained, wacked-out "double life"  
it forces every true believer to live *and* try to peddle to you.   
Seriously.  Been there, done that, got the merit badge --- grew up in  
church, as discussed elsewhere --- and it's only the distance of time  
and education that allows one to step back and say

WHAT THE FUCK was all of that shit about, anyway?

You *know* what I'm talking about.
