The best thing Christianity could do for itself is what it's actually doing - throwing away its more rediculous beliefs, traditions and prejudices and moderating its rituals. No sane person has anything againt the ideals of Christianity - the 'what would Jesus do' Christians are thoroughly nice people wanting the best for humanity. They have deluded beliefs about why they should be that way but so long as they behave themselves we can all live together.

Sadly though there's still the evangellicals, the paedophiles, the missionaries, the crazies and the bigots damaging children and claiming rights over others. But the more they do that in modern society, the more they're marginalised and ignored.

Re: Missionary: FAIL
The world is full of whackos, god knows why your god likes to make them, but apparently he does. It's even odder that he allows one of his creation to be killed trying to do something he instructed him to do.

Maybe you can tell us?

If we suffered an economic collapse or another major 9-11 type attack, forcing us into war, the streets would run thick with preachers and society likely would have them arrested. Whether that would further add fuel to the fire in a war of ideologies is uncertain as of yet.

You're getting really desperate Phat.
