Inconsistency is not hypocrisy

[On the unreasonableness of legal religion  by Isaac Weiner 
what many “lived religion” scholars find most interesting, namely the productive tension between norms and practices, the varied ways that individuals negotiate their religious lives from within disciplinary power structures, or, put more simply, the fact that inconsistency is not tantamount to hypocrisy. ]

Being ordinary and average is an inalienable aspect of human condition that deserves protection. It's surely admirable to pursue excellence and attain expertise but as abilities and opportunities are unevenly distributed, those crawling at the bottom of the pyramid need to be treated sympathetically. [TNM55]
