2. As funny as this is...

...I have to expect any extended satirical analogy to never quite measure up.

However, this one's surprisingly accurate. I award RandomFerret 10 Internets for him/her to spend as he/she chooses.

3. I always thought

Yahweh hates everybody except his people who he sometimes likes
Father, Son and HG love everyone but will roast nearly everyone, forever
Allah, loves everyone except women, unbelievers, children and people who are not OCD about washing ...

4. It's apt because they're organically related. All the activities that involve voluntary

suspension of disbelief in exchange for coins evolved from religion. Drama, opera, magic shows--you name it.

7. By some definitions, yes.

 

My mother is Jewish and I come from a Jewish background.

Also based on something my former Rabbi said, rejecting the religion and it's practices was one of the most Jewish things I've ever done.

But, really...the second Highlander movie was shit.

9. lol, yes it was!

And I found it really funny that the 3rd Highlander movie decided to just ignore the 2nd one completely.

10. Hence the relevance to the OP.

 

Judaism: Scotsman with an Irish name, Egyptian played by Sean Connery, soundtrack by Queen.

Christianity: The world is ending and the characters in the first movie are space aliens sent to Earth as punishment.

Islam: Connor MacLeod has a brother called Duncan, who's the important one and they weren't space aliens.

LDS: Hell, yes space aliens!

12. Muslims don't think he's the messiah, but they think he was a prophet

 

The Quaran is essentialy the New, New Testament. Muslims believe in the Old and New Testament per se. They just think their's is 'newer.'

Mormons, well, not quite sure...

13. Mormons go the traditional route.

 

That is, to say, "the last group was mostly right, here's what they got wrong and here's what they left out."

To build on your description, the Book of Mormon is basically an errata list and addendum to the New Testament.

LDS gets a bad rap as being loony tunes, but there's nothing in the Mormon scriptures that's weirder than some of the stuff in the Bible or Qur'an.
