"Niali, You are the victim of a Xianut troll.  You have my sympathy.  I have been 'defriended' by people I've known for forty plus years when they learned that I do not worship the late J.C. - if he did indeed ever exist."

"NO, Michelob, just continue to drink the figurative kool aid of religion - whichever of the 1.000sc of brands suits you.   OR, read some history books on the pagan origins of Xianity. Up to especially the 4th century."
