When work started getting to me I was lucky to have found the saying "work is 
just work."  It was an amazing realization when I understood this.   Focus on 
each moment of your work, then what others do is not so upsetting.

Subject: [Zen] Christian Question

I need help.

I have been working for this ultra-Christian, ultra-right wing 
asshole who is the epitomie of hypocrisy. 

He hardly ever comes to work. He claims his step-daughter is a 25 
year old virgin and yet she lives with her boyfriend and regularly 
goes on trips with him. She also works here and basically does 
nothing except spend all day talking to the secretary, who also does 
nothing except expose her cleavage and shove her tits in the boss's 
face whenever he is around. 

One step-son is a drug-dealer. 

He left his previous wife to marry his secretary. He also left his 
two young sons. 

His new wife works with him and also never comes to work. When she 
does show up for work she spends all day goofing off with her daugter 
and the "head secreatary." 

The husband and wife team are always getting ready for religious 
retreats and missions, yet he is very verbally abusive to people, and 
is constantly bad-mouthing all of his business competition, claiming 
they are un-Christian or otherwise lacking in morality or character. 

He claims that he disciples others, and I have a hard time NOT 
LAUGHING when he says that. He claims to be a disciple of a fat slob 
(not Buddha) who claims to be a Christian Minister, but this guy has 
no church and does not work and lives from the donations from his 
disciples. These folks are not part of any church, but they attend 
local churches. 

They seem like some kind of cult to me. They also seem to generally 
act in a very self-serving and un-christian manner. I have gone to a 
few of their meetings, and they basically run down other church 
groups, bad-mouth Catholics (they claim Mother Theresa is burning in 
Hell), and seem to think that they are the only ones called to God. I 
stopped being invited to these meetings because apparently I was 
not "called to God." I think it was because I never offered to give 
the fat dude any money. 

The Christian boss also speaks horribly about any of his former 
employees who he has not parted amicably with. The most recent person 
who left had about 25 hours trimmed from their paycheck, and got paid 
about 6 weeks after leaving. This guy is very vindictive, and he 
constantly has Jesus on his lips.

I really want to quit this job, but I am earning a decent income and 
because the economy is down, I do not know that I could earn as much 
somewhere else. What should I do? I do not like this environment of 
lies and hypocrisy. I do not like seeing so many people standing 
around doing nothing while I and another employee do most of the 
work. I have a lot of issues here, and I would appreciate anyone and 
everyone's help in sorting these things out. I do not want to react 
to these folks, but I am feeling a lot of stress from the job. I need 
to get it under control and understand why they are upsetting me so
