>Answering the "Hypocrite" Excuse

>The often-raised “excuse” for not going to church is “There are too many hypocrites there.”

A classic, though not kind answer, “That’s okay, there is plenty of room for another one.”

But a while ago someone played that excuse on me, and I responded, “Don’t you like the NFL?”

“Well, yeah.”

“Of course you know there are a lot of scum bags in the National Football League?”

“Well, yeah.”

“But you still like the NFL, right?”

Not sure if I made my point, but it works for me!
