That sounds a lot like something Jesus said:
Luke 7:31-35 "To what, then, can I compare the people of this generation? What are they like?
They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling out to each other: "'We played the flute for you, and you did not dance; we sang a
dirge, and you did not cry.' For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a demon.' The Son of Man, on
the other hand, feasts and drinks, and you say, 'He's a glutton and a drunkard, and a friend of tax collectors and other sinners!' But wisdom is
proved right by all her children."
You can't tell the difference between people who call themselves athiests and people who call themselves Christians because MANY Christians have been
decieved, and that deception is not on a small scale, it is the Great Deception as spoken of in the bible. They, through their all too trusting nature
have believed the MANY false prophets who have gone out into the world, they mistakenly believe that these prophets are truly representing Christ's
behavior because they don't love the truth, they won't bother to read what Jesus said, they'll hardly bother to share what He said, and often they
won't preach to anyone on a higher social rung than themselves. There is supposed to be a difference, a BIG BIG BIG difference, but that comes at a
very VERY steep personal cost.
