religion has a built in escape clause. You do something wrong go confess your sin you are saved. Give your life to Jesus with last breath you get to go to Heaven. So they can be as big of a asshole as they want just remember the escape clauses.

@benhmiller well said!

We ARE being told. In fact we are the most guilty and sinful of the lot, it just makes no difference to us.
