Such severe and stern religious leaders often seek to be in control; and are intolerant of charitable religious leaders who presume to reveal God as Love --- and as sacrificially interested in serving to liberate the imprisoned and the oppressed, offering and expanding alternatives, promoting forgiveness and reconciliation, and working for conflict-resolution and cooperation. Often severe and stern religious leaders are inclined to crucify those charitable religious leaders who expose and make clear the alienative and disintegrative consequences of the ways of severe and stern religious leaders.
