1. Toxic is a good word.

Some years ago a book came out about Toxic Parents/parenting. It gave descriptions of toxic behaviors, and how it damages children. It helped a lot of adult children to understand their upbringing and even better, it gave resources for what we were calling "codependents" to get help.

Our immediate reaction to hypocritical religions leaders is because we can see/feel/sense their toxicity.

I think the term should be used more often.
