    Well true but they have been idolising a book for like two thousand years so what's one more?

    Anyhow perhaps the guy swings, you know, like Shaft? Perhaps he's just a rock star?

    If they'd even read the book they'd know that idolatry was a "sin". Ah, the irony.

    I have no need to be lectured to about Christian teachings.

    This certainly takes the notion of everyman trying to be his own pope to a whole new low.
