Are you challenging his beliefs? You must be a heathen or something, how dare you?

Very well explained

No, not challenging his beliefs, just showing my lack of understanding

Wow, it is amazing how many simple shits Christianity has duped.

All that mystical shit about the virgin birth and "three is one" and being born to commoners, like in a manger in the dead of winter and rising after death and coming again to judge the living and the dead was written and formed the basis of pagan beliefs long before Christ arrived on the scene. Constantine's role was to negotiate their inclusion in "new terms" into the present Christian "mysticism."

Christianity today is fucking business.

Judging from Palin's latest litter, I would have to agree with that
