I'm willing to bet that I could go anywhere within a 10 mile radius of my house and most people in any group of 100 people I find will say they disagree with your views, and not just about Christianity.
That is actually a good point. Perhaps it's the first reasonable and anecdotal counter-point to my argument. There are some issues with it, one being that you're talking about a single area, not a national average of sorts. Secondly, one might be a registered Democrat but not a "liberal" per se. In Philadelphia for example, you have to be a Democrat or they cut off your arms. Conservatives run as Democrats, because as Republicans they wouldn't stand a chance. In other words, one can be a church-going, believing Democrat without actually being a died in the wool liberal. Especially in the city, from my experience.

From MY experiences, so called "christians" are by far the biggest hypocrites of ANY demographic!
1. True in itself, though I think you'd find most church-goers are not just attending...they are believers. The entire contemporary Christian/fellowship movement is based on this.
2. I don't see how that would prove "Christian hypocrisy" at all. Whatever that means.
3. Define hypocrite in this context.

I sort of believe it. I was really just having some fun to be honest.
