Such religious leaders regard alienation between themselves and such people whom they cannot control --- as an acceptable price to pay for trying to protect the purity of their followers. They are unlikely to take note of the important distinctions between: 1. A person casually choosing to alienate themselves from another person or persons --- at their own initiative and with indifference to the alienation which they engender without appeal to higher principles, ideals, or values. 2. A person choosing to be true to themselves and others near and dear to them in efforts to promote their personal and communal integrity --- even though doing so leads to yet others to alienate themselves from their integrative efforts and community. 3. A person committing themselves to some exclusive and narrowly define ideal, value, principle and/or goal in ways which lead to them alienating themselves from others who are excluded from sympathetic consideration and perhaps even sacrificed in the service of the exclusive ideal, value, principle and/or goal. 4. A person or persons deliberately seeking to cause another or others to be alienated from each other --- in order to serve some exclusive and narrowly define ideal, value, principle and/or goal which shows low respect for personal and communal integrity. Some people in practice do not recognize that such distinctions might be made --- and see no reason why they should learn how to make such distinctions in charitable ways. Such people often undermine personal and communal integrity. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
