Alright, I just got through reading most of these posts, and since I haven't threw my two cents in, I'm feeling left out. So, here it goes. (This will probably sound very redundant after all the other replies, but no one is forcing you to read it)
PunkMonkey, did you meet God in person? Did he tell you with his own words (or perhaps by means of Mesotron if the movies are correct) that Christianity is the only way? Hah! The very idea that there is only one way to heaven is absurd! Do you honestly believe that anyone who deos follow your religion is going to hell? What kind of benevolent celestial being denies an afterlife to people that haven't even had the chance to become a Christian? No, those are not the words of God, but rather corrupted priests and scholars in the early 100 A.D.s that sought only to control with fear. It's a very simple equation, folks - Priests and scholars need money to fund the steady growth of thousands of christian churches. Of course, the donations from all the good Christians help, but it seems the drawing power of our savior isn't quite enough to bring in the big bucks. So we change a few words, add a new couple verses to the bible, and suddenly, people are flocking the mad to save themselves from... well, themselves. Suddenly, God is angry and vengeful, and Jesus wasn't here just to save us, but also to warn us about not being good christians and following his path. Now, Priests begin preaching that you can buy your way into heaven with donations to the church, and suddenly, all the easily manipulated people are flocking to their savior. I'm not a very religious person, in fact I honestly have no religion. I think there is a God, and an afterlife, but I don't believe in any one single deity, because it's that kind of blind faith that leads to wars and violence. How can you hold one thing to be true, well someone else holds the exact opposite to be true? It deosn't work deos it? Uh-oh, now we've got a problem with a seemingly very simple solution - kill everyone who deosn't believe. Resistance is futile, you will be assimilated. And all in the name of our lord, Jesus Christ. Wonderful. I hope you're comfortable slaughtering people because of some work of FICTION written before you were even born. Asshole.
