True, but those that place themselves in a position that engenders the trust of their followers should be held to a higher standard, like police or teachers. In a lot of aspects the betrayal of that trust is a more heinous infraction than the crime itself.
To nudge this thread back toward the original topic, while ignorance may not be a foundation of Christianity, I think that a lot of religions have come to depend on the blind trust of others. Especially those that hang on to concepts and ideas that will not stand up to close scientific scrutiny.
Incorrect as stated, but not totally without merit. I believe that many tenets of Christianity do not ring true in a literal context, but are still taught as "truth" within the faith. But that is the essence of "ignorance" isn't it? To know you are doing something wrong but carry on with it anyways ? I believe the more progressive Christian faiths are embracing a metaphoric approach to Biblical stories, where literal belief is not required but the moral message remains intact.
Some say there are over 30,000 separate kinds of Christianity
