Hitler. Hitler is more evil than Satan. Bring back Hitler and have Jesus
kill him, and then he'd get a lot of followers.

Who the hell do you think Christianity is supposed to appeal to? The LOSERS!
The people who NEED a savior to cope with the inadequacy of their own lives!
No, what Jesus needs is a new beatitude: "Blessed are the dumbshits." Don't
even bother to give them the promise in the second half, that's all they need:
"Blessed are the dumbshits." Sure, if you're too damn dumb you suffer and
die, but even if you're not dumb you suffer and die. And what Jesus is all
about is saying that THAT'S OK. Which people want to hear anyway.

Sell? What's this sell stuff? Back in the day, Jesus would go around saying
"OK, leave behind everything you own and FOLLOW ME." That was his big thing.
Family? Forget it. Job? Repent! Quit your job!

Only if Fran Drescher was involved.
