The Prosperity Gospel! How special is that? Well I also have a quote, from Mahatma Gandhi, "I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

How about 600 yrs on the outside, and thousands of people? If 1/3 to 1/3 the population was killed by the plague during that time, your 75 million would have left Europe pretty sparsely populated to say the least. How could they have carried on all those wars?

Where did you find that secret tidbit? I've "looked it up" more than once. That claim is more than a stretch.

50's, Like much of our Christian heritage...much of the horrific catholic inquisitions are now glossed over. If we look it up rather than accept a modern school teacher's mention, we find some extreme horrors of that "religion"

Please substitute Communism for Socialism. It is more accurate and removes the stain of the era when the evil Soviets existed. Now we have an accurate read. Tea to the di Baggers all the way to the destruction of the GOP! Let's roll!

HenryH, you should know: "Subtitle: In NEWS1675, we revealed that one of the psychological devices priests used to get their female penitents to have sex with them was the threat to lie to the "Holy" Inquisition, so the woman would be torturously murdered. Since history books have been largely rewritten, few people know specific details of this murderous campaign that lasted over 1,200 years, killing 75 million people. But, once you understand the unprecedented horrors of the Inquisition, you will never look at the religion of Roman Catholicism the same way again."

The author forgot to include the part at the end of this quote where he says "Now don't forget to put your contribution to the church in the collection plate before you leave."

Don't the teachings of christianity (New Testament) sound much more socialist than capitalist?

Churches teamed up with the Western World because communist countries at the time were throwing out churches. This nothing more than using his position to push cold war propaganda just how preachers, pastors and priest do it in todays politics.
