Such non-conformal acceptance is made to look unacceptable because it is seen as a threat to the security which is offered by their legalistic system. Many people are insecure, fearful and defensive; and do not want to deal with any threat to the status quo which might lead to unknown risks. Thus many people can be led to see non-conformal acceptance as an unacceptable risk which should not be respected or tolerated. For the above reasons legalistic religious leaders work tacitly to undermine the works of Holy Spirit, God, Love and Truth---dangerously leading people to accept each other in non-conformal ways which are not properly dominated by rules, regulations, prohibitions, prescriptions or dogmas. The collusive games of mutual self deception of legalistic religious leaders make non- conformal personal acceptance taboo---in ways which may not be recognized, named, described or talked about. This makes it difficult to transcend the paradigm of legalistic religious leaders such as those who conspired to get Jesus of Nazareth crucified---because of his non-conformal acceptance of non-conformists who were not acceptable in terms of the dominant rules, regulations, prohibitions, prescriptions and dogmas of the legalistic religious leaders of his community of faith.
