It's not so scary once you think about it.

I can't tell you what Christians think, I'm not a Christian. But I can
tell you that I think Jesus was a man of great honor and integritiy who's
sacrifice has been twisted into a false promise of hope that has bred
centuries of violence and laziness. And I also think that he'd be disgusted
with us if he saw the current state of things, morally speaking.
