    ...religion to make money? I mean, these guys take advantage of people?s belief in Jesus to make money. Another way of saying it is that these scam artists take advantage of people?s tendency to believe wholeheartedly in things that are not part of reality. But people aren?t born with a tendency to believe wholeheartedly in things that are not part of reality; they are programmed to believe in them by the power of organized religion. So shouldn?t the programmers, brainwashers and doctrine implanters bear some blame for deliberately making people more likely to be a target for scam artists?

    "Religion is a snare and a racket." That was once said by a very religious man, upon noticing how religion had used the bible to make millions of dollars.
    He was flogged and imprisoned but he still felt the same way. We all know today they are a bunch of crooks.
    The time will come when the people will wake up and then religion will get its just deserts.

    The whole invisible-guy-in-the-sky thingie was invented by a scammer who, on seeing how much FEAR his fellow tribesmen had over thunder and lightning, decided to make up some stories to explain the 'phenomena' and VOILA!
    The MOST PROFITABLE niche market of all scams was formed.

    And, so, xianity, being THE most lucrative of all scams, should bear the full brunt of responsibility for having so many home-grown scammers "deliberately making people more likely to be a target for scam artists?"

    If it wasn't for these con men many people may be a lot more cynical and save themselves money and anguish from being duped of their money.

    No. If they weren't scamming Christians, they'd be scamming old people or something. Should human kind be responsible for people getting old?
