Evidently these same religious leaders don't want to speak out against apostasy in their own churches, the false doctrines they espouse, the sinful morals they promote, their own utter hypocrisy (as divesting in oil while driving cars that need it), the souls they have ruined by driving them from their churches with ill-advised secularism, their intolerance of those who disagree with them while claiming to be the most tolerant of people, their legal theft of churches and their finances. However, they will gather to condemn an historical statue and unite to erase anything to do with the CSA from pubic view. I believe Jesus said something be a beam in one' own eye and a speck of sawdust in someone else's eye.

Evidently, you ought to get the "Good Book" out and read it once or twice.

If you would, you might be less likely to misquote it.
