Ya know how it is when ya really screw up? Like, when you're thanking all these people in church for all they do, and you're pretty sure you covered all the guilds and vestry members and the office staff and the sexton and the acolytes and all the musicians and the Chalice Bearers and Lectors and then at two in the morning you sit up and say, "Dang! I forgot the Lay Eucharistic Visitors!" or when you up-date your blogroll and make a big production about how kewl everyone and their blogs are? And then, in your regular evening net-surfing you go to a friend's blog and realize "AH CRAP! I FORGOT TO ADD SPOCKO!!"? Ya know how that is? Well, me too!
Everybody simply must visit Spocko's Brain and read his Most Wonderful Post about people who go to church all the time, hearing about loving their neighbors and how they shall not kill, yet when they go to work they torture and kill their neighbor.
And, Spocko, in answer to your question: We call those people "really stupidly slow learners" and "Republican politicians." You know, the kind of people who, after giving tax cuts to the wealthy for years and years and then seeing the economy collapse believe that the solution to the problem is to give the wealthy more tax cuts!
