    Christianity Scared the Be’jesus Out of Me!

    The problem with Christianity is Jesus.

    There's no way to fix the problem, to remove the problem and still call the religion Christianity. The problem is the whole idea of vicarious atonement - the concept of someone else atoning for people's sins by dying for them. It means that as long as someone "believes," or let...
