Not at all. You grew up Catholic. Most of you guys dont ever get to know Jesus anyway. (of course many of us don't either)
but what you must realize is that once you do actually *know* God, you don't simply switch.

Millions of Catholics think EXACTLY what you think. I mean EXACTLY.
I did too.

There's nothing special about your delusion Phat, billions more have it with totally different gods.

Some of them actually believe it so badly that they will kill themselves and others for it, while you won't even do what your Jesus tells you to with money.

One useful stat would be if we knew how many from other cultures seek Jesus

We do know; it's zero.

It people automatically 'sought' Jesus without having any knowledge of Christianity, there would be no need to 'spread the word' or send missionaries. The simple fact is that unless you're indoctrinated by other humans, you do not believe in the Christian fantasy.
