It's been going on for Millennia, at least...
Of course. I don't exactly think Religion or faith is, well, a "bad" thing, but it does breed arrogance that amounts to "I know God, and if you refuse to, I don't like you!". I actually had someone pull their car over into a side street to talk to me
. And someone who rushed out of the store I'd just been in, giving me one of those small booklets. If I want to believe, I don't need them to do it.
@Rtas Vadum: For some reason, your quote reminds me of John Lennon's "bigger than Jesus" comment.
Yeah, get famous enough, and you generally are. If not just as famous as Jesus, that is. Or even Judas, since everyone knows about what went on there.
