Two Perspectives on Jesus' Advice

It doesn't matter Jesus said, "be merciful," because [the prohibitionists] only apply that to themselves; they judge you based on another saying of Jesus, "be perfect," and if you're not what they consider perfect, then they adjudicate themselves to beat the hell out of you, drive you bankrupt, incarcerate you, or kill you, all with impunity.

Commentary: 

"…all with impunity," until Judgement Day, that is. Then they find out they have not been serving the God of Love, but The Destroyer. And they are tossed out ON Da Crap Pile, which Jesus refers to as Gehenna.
