Or.. like most religions, the point was to create a uniform system of morality and law that transcended governments and nation states (which were ambiguous and shifted often) under the threat of everlasting and universal punishment, and that one just cracked the code on making it proliferate easily, like a well evolved virus. I mean there's a reason it's spawned the most variants out of all other religions.That is interesting. Maybe it's time that the religiously modest start to take more interest in what the fanatics are doing to religion generally. The whole point of Christianity, in my opinion, is to create the inner joy of life that comes with little ego, but all that evil requires to win is for good people to do nothing, they say. Where is someone like Joseph Nye Welch to ask the religious right if it has no decency.
