12. It goes back to ideology

when one is capable of believing in a god that rapes a virgin to impregnate her with his son, who is actually him, then after this son grows up, kills him, but lets him resurrect (kind of a cheat, you might say), so that his death - a false death - will bring salvation (how?) to all the people on the earth. But, the one person who had to enable all this gloriousness to happen, Judas Iscariot, is killed and has his entrails scattered all over the place.

Yeah, if any of that makes sense to anyone and they can accept that, then obviously, they can accept other cuckoo ideas like trickle-down economics and war is peace and bootstrappiness.

If they had believed in a god that had a bit more logical underpinnings, I think such dreck like trickle-down economics would never have gone through.

Or, if they read more about the life of Christ, and not so much about his death and resurrection, they would have read how he treated the poor and the sick and didn't trickle-down on them.
