In a religious context the wise saying, “same nife tick sheep, tick goat” can be applied in this way; the corrupt leaders hide or excuse their bad behavior towards others by giving the excuse that they are doing it for God, to save the church organization, blame the church manual, or some false doctrine is causing them to behave badly. Yet the corrupt has emptied out the church, brought shame upon the cause of Christ, and destruction upon themselves and the people.

Luke 23:24 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be as they required. 23:25 And he released unto them him that for sedition and murder was cast into prison, whom they had desired; but he delivered Jesus to their will. 23:26 And as they led him away, they laid hold upon one Simon, a Cyrenian, coming out of the country, and on him they laid the cross, that he might bear [it] after Jesus. 23:27 And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him. 23:28 But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. 23:29 For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed [are] the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. 23:30 Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. 23:31 For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?
