Such efforts lack integrity and lead to both personal and communal disintegration. Religious leaders often arrogate to themselves the right, responsibility and power to manage/control the behaviors of their followers --- under the pretense that they can thereby promote communal and personal integrity. A careful consideration of the outcomes of the behaviors of such arrogant religious leaders may reveal (to their consternation) that their efforts often lead to both personal and communal disintegration. It is one thing to witness to what one has oneself experienced, learned, observed, perceived, etc. It is quite another thing to use coercion/violence to try to get others to conform to one's own conception of how others should behave. Open and honest witness rarely contributes to personal and communal disintegration. Coercion/violence often lead to personal and communal disintegration. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
