Benedict What pious claptrap you spew forth. The church is a business, pure and simple, just look at the wealth it's accumulated whilst encouraging others to give to the poor and needy. Hypocritical in the extreme, and preying (note the similarity to another word you're no doubt familiar with) on the fears/naivety/plain stupidity of the people it sucks in. If all religious nut jobs were to be believed there'd be countless gods around, all promising a wonderful afterlife no doubt, and all telling their followers that they are the "only God" to be obeyed/followed/whatever. Absolute nonsense, and how anyone with a modicum of intelligence believes in it is beyond my comprehension.
