According to George Carlin, Jesus would not come back, just to see people wearing his execution device around their necks. Carlin says that they might as well be wearing miniature electric chairs around their necks.
That wasn’t originally Carlin – Carlin doesn’t hesitate to steal good material.
Focusing on Jesus’s death rather than on his life most likely led to a lot more Christian-inspired violence than if people wore images of Jesus healing someone. With martrydom comes revenge. With revenge comes oppression, injury, and death.
Christianity can realistically be called a “death cult”. Satanism can realistically be called a parody of a death cult.
The Christians love themselves some Rapture and Armageddon. Blessed light falling on them, burning death falling on everyone else. The most wonderful of all moments.
