    We need an alternative to "faith based" but I'm not sure what. The people you're describing aren't really "faith based;" they're using what they call "faith" as a shield to hide behind to promote their meanness, selfishness, ignorance and fear. In Christian terms, they're the ones who will be surprised when they end up on the left hand of Jesus and He says to them, "Go away, I never knew you."

    Hypocrites, perhaps? Jesus despised hypocrisy and attacked it at every opportunity. And those who profess to be His followers but don't feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the sick and instead use their religion to perpetuate their own place in the status quo are the very people He was railing against.

    Yeah. Mean, selfish, hypocritical, ignorant and scared. That sounds better.

    If this be treason, make the most of it.
