Christians act worse than non-Christians: Bible Edition

"But she [Israel, God's Holy People] has rebelled against my ordinances and statutes, becoming more wicked than the nations and the countries around her, rejecting my ordinances and not following my statutes." ~Ezekiel 5:6 (NRSV)

So basically God anticipated the whole "Christians act morally worse than non-Christians" argument 2,500 years ago.

In other words, it is a given in biblical thought that religious people can indeed act more wicked than those who don't follow that religion...but notice what standard is presupposed.
