    Here's a link to Lion & Thunder, I loved that comic as a kid especially Adam Eterno who I saw as an early Christ figure for my formative years.

    What do you mean by this? Are you saying more religions should be introduced, or are you saying they should be allowed into schools or catered for by institutions? If so, surely what is more important is secularism ie making government and institutions neutral to religion?

    My own country Zambia declared itself a 'Christian Nation'. This is an example of democracy going where it shouldn't.

    I'm sure you'd be far better off if they had gone Muslim instead of Christian.

    Unless you're a woman, of course.

    We have too much religious diversity. We only need one, The Truth, which can only be found in Christianity.

    It seems that we will never be rid of the specter of religion, this scourge of humanity.

    So the lesser of several evils is to have diversity thus making it harder for one terrorist group to take over completely.

    And I ask again: what do you mean by 'have diversity'? What are you proposing? Do we invent five new religions then convert Christians into those religions?

    "It could have been worse".
    Thats the best comeback you could think of?

    I actually agree, I prefer Christianity to Islam. Partly because most Christians are not very serious about their religion and partly because Christianity has evolved over time to accept new norms whereas Islam has not progressed very far.
