I forgot that the Christian hierarchy were called hypocrites by none other than Paul in his letter to the Galatians. It seems our first Pope would eat with Gentiles, a no no for Jews, whenever his Jewish cohorts were not around. But once the other Jewish leaders showed up, the Pope backed off from the Gentiles and followed Jewish customs. Paul called him out. I guess hypocrisy and politics has been a problem for Christianity since the beginning. The hierarchy in Rome are having a meeting now on the subject of "The Family." Pope Francis asked everyone to speak frankly. We will see.
