12. I've never understood it, either.
Particularly when they're so eager to repeat it. Unless........well, the Christ died for your sins looks a little small next to six million dying for the world's sins of hatred and indifference. Petty, even.

But that wouldn't account for the Muslim need.....

I did meet a student once who insisted that the only people who had ever been slaves were black. He was very upset to discover that slavery was equal opportunity in the ancient world.

It's kinda like terrorists being really perplexed with how to top 9/11. Six million dead is the currently unassailable champion victimhood, just as 9/11 is the champion terror strike of all time. If you want YOUR group to be the champion either gotta match it, or destroy faith in the previous record. Like saying all the Jews took steroids when they were gassed or something. Or went to Brooklyn and watched Yankee games.
