The progressive religion and the sinners who repent

I call it the capo paradox because the first time I noticed it was while reading one of Mario Puzo's books as teenager. There was a glaring error in the story line-the mafia boss was really pious and he was donating to the church and to widows. Didn't he know this is a zero-sum effort? If God exists he'd operate by the rules described in the bible, therefore tossing small percentage of your wealth to those in need would not excuse the horrible deeds a mafia boss does. So why waste time and energy? I took it for bad research or lazy writing and was quite surprised couple of years later when I found that indeed mafia bosses in Italy are exactly like that. I took it as proof that no one thinks of themselves as a bad person-when faced with overwhelming proof the boss "elevated" in his mind some activities making them equal to the sins he commits  but with opposite sign. As I was growing and learning of the world around me this guess of mine seemed weaker and weaker-the chain of conclusions wasn't really solid. But certain practices I learned about seemed to confirm the final result.As I witnessed the turmoil that the transition to democracy in Eastern Europe became I was acquainted to several people managing one or another form of criminal activity and they all suffered from the same syndrome. They'd sell drugs to minors and by the end of the year donate millions to an orphanage or even secure the living of a widow whose husband they "ordered" themselves.

Al Capone was paying for his infamous "soup kitchens" where the poor could get food for free

There are many other facts and stories I could bring that are common knowledge and back my claim.
The pedophiles fate when imprisoned for example-they often suffer from nasty "incidents" organized by their outraged cellmates.The prison authorities often work on segregating them from the "normal" criminals for their own safety which serves as confirmation that the attitude is widespread. So we have a bunch of murderers and rapists jumping on the chance to prove they are not as bad as the world thinks them of. As if I can hear them:
-See, we hate people that hurt children, we're not that bad!

The options to extend this list are almost unlimited and I'm sure those reading already thought of examples I didn't figure out. Saddam insisted on gender equality something quite revolutionary for the Middle East, Lenin loved children(not in THAT way you perv) and Nero was making many amends trying to improve the living of the poor

We got the same thing with SJW's, they "elevate" racism, homophobia and all the others, you name them. As long as they condemn all those -isms and -phobias they can't be the bad guys, right?
Having in mind that the darkest secrets in our lives are more likely to remain secrets it is surprising the amount of how many of the actively barking SJW's in the last 2 years have had serious morale flops reported about them. The list here is easy to compile tho will probably never be full:

>Sarah Nyberg-the famous fighter against GamerGate
>Lena Duhham-the famous feminist (if Trump wins one of the reasons will be her promise to move to Canada if this happens)
 >Jian Ghomeshi-supposedly fighting for equality with women, while the rape accusations against him remain questionable there is no argument over the fact that he used the position he obtained through such talk to abuse and degrade women as shown during the trial.
>Hugo Schwyzer who also claimed he puts women on pedestal until exactly the opposite has been proven

Just as I was writing this the last in the chain blew up: Matt Hickey, a progressive dudebro with aspiring career as a journalist has been caught red handed lying to random girls online and soliciting them to have sex with him.  Wait, the same Matt Hickey that the gamer world learned of when he viciously criticized Microsoft for throwing a bunch of half-naked dancers at a party they staged during the Game Developers Congress? As you can see from the following Matt seems to hold women in especially high regard and insist they receive all the respect possible even if women didn't ask for it specifically:

The doublefaced life of Matt is not the topic today tho it is worth noting how his acts are exactly the opposite  of what his ideals he claims are. What I want to underline is how nicely he fits the narrative, he is just another mafia boss that after murdering and destroying lives throws some pennies to the church and believes he's paid his due.
