The most efficient way to exclude people from a Church is to come up with a set of dogmas that thinking people may rightfully question; for example:


>>> The pope is infallible.


>>> Women are second class.


>>> God is “He” and there are three of him.


>>> Parents should not plan their families.


>>> Missing Mass is a mortal sin (ticket straight to hell).


>>> Truth is only available in the Vatican’s Church.


The historical Jesus never excluded anyone and he criticized the Pharisaical dogma-makers of his time who put “burdens” on people.
