50. Promoting nonsense (and worse) usually doesn't harm (or discredit) the promoter

For two millennia, people have promoted the idea of a perfect god who made every single person defective (the free will argument is bullshit; if we really had a chance, some of us would make it -- but their bible is very clear: "ALL have sinned and come short of the glory..." blah, blah, blah)

This same perfect god can only come up with one solution to this problem: Murder the innocent. (Scapegoating, sacrifices, and finally arranging to get himself murdered)

Promoting bullshit NEVER seems to harm the promoter.

Preachers all over the planet tell this story every day (and at least twice on Sundays).

Do they EVER get any blowback?
