"That is a good question.  I have no idea myself but the speculation ranges from his increasing infirmity to embarrassment over his handling of abuse cases in the past.  With the world growing increasingly more outraged by the stories of…"

"Yeah, good point.  Plus, if you believe the prevailing fable (quite open to interpretation and revision), he had no wife or children.  The "starting a religion thing" wasn't working very well judging from the fact the Romans…"

"Interesting that apparently he didn't preach until he hit that age, either. Christians will torture their chronology to make the gospels compatible with each other when you read the sequence of events (coming up with three distinct incidents…"

"I would not go. You can reinforce the "personal relationship" thing that christians claim they have with their god substance, and simply state that you don't share that relationship with them. Your lack of a relationship with a god…"
