I agree with you as the many problems in the "Church" that should not be happening. However, I think people correct by generalizing - like all women or all churches or all poiticians - without any delineation. Neither is it only in religious circles. Becoming a Christian requires being "born again" AND RECEIVING A NEW NATURE AS OPPOSED TO THE FALLEN NATURE and growing in that gracious forgiveness. The fallen nature is within and opposes the new nature being newly formed. I believe culturally the problem arises because the lack of repeating Jesus' teaching "You must be born again." is the precipitating agent for the problems. Religion is like an overly starched shirt. It is unwearable, because it is far too itchy.
