Found HERE.  It originlly comes from a blog entry HERE, but it seems to be rooted in something that is actually happening.

That seems consistent with the actual behavior of christians (not what they say they believe and should do) over the centuries so it doesn’t surprise me.

Yes Doug.  But don’t they claim to be moral exemplars?
