if you're saying this "tongue-in-cheek" it is much closer to the truth than you could ever imagine!
if you're saying this seriously, then let me agree with you again, this time 100%. I've seen people living this "christian evangelical" lifestyle. I think there is pressure on the church members to conform and live like everyone else that goes to that particular church. For instance, one of the expected behaviors is that after attending worship on Sunday morning, the christian will go out to eat at a "family" type restaurant, a place that is not too expensive, serves huge servings of comfort food, OR has a buffet. while there, the christians are expected to offer a prayer for their food, just loud enough for others to see how spiritual they are, and then they indulge in the sin of gluttony.
