Contentious relationships, 2. Preoccupations with issues of control, 3. Disintegrative conflicts, 4. Coercive efforts, 5. Addictive activities, 6. Dishonest dealings, 7. Deceptive patterns of behaviors, and 8. Collusive games of mutual self deception. Other religious leaders cannot lead towards the transcendence of the behaviors of such people --- by opposing them in like manners; i.e., by taking opposite sides on issues which have been defined by those whose behaviors need to be transcended. Taking opposite sides in their contentious manner is to surrender to their way of life; to join them in being contentious. (c) 2005 by Paul A. Smith in (On Being Yourself, Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
