Orgon sees Tartuffe as a devout and pious man. He invites him into his family home to act as moral guide and religious teacher to his family, and goes on to treat him with more devotion, reverence, and love than he does the mebers of his own family. Having met Tartuffe in a church has mistakenly led Orgon to see Tartuffe as perfect; the most important factot in this is that he believes religious men to be moral and without fault based on what they profess as opposed to how they act.
