What made me smile was the phrase;
some could be fraudsters
Aren’t all religious leaders fraudsters?
They make ludicrous claims of life after death and of an all compassionate but also all knowing and all powerful old male chauvinist in the sky.
And for their ridiculous, totally unverifiable, claims they get to live rent and tax free and are respected within the community.
Religion is so obviously a confidence scam it is laughable.
The sad thing is that the confidence tricksters, on the whole, believe the daft claims of their own scam.
