It may well be true, but my point was only that Paul and Constantine had probably more influence than even Jesus on what Christianism has become today (Paul shaped the creed, Constantine gave it momentum.)
Since you are interested in Manchausen by Proxy, you should also look at :
Oh my! My cousin went through that with his second (or was it his third?) divorce. Watching from the sidelines I pitied him and despised his wife - he had no idea what was going on and she was doing her best to beat him into the dirt. She did a pretty good job of it too - and he probably deserved it. Sad.
And I had a great laugh - imagining the triune god as three parents, each one trashing the other two in order to alienate the children! It would be a great Monty Python sketch.
Thanks, Chris, for the reference.
I agree he's as erratic as "an emotional teenage girl," but I'm not at all sure of how moral he was about 2000 years ago. As someone summarized the Bible, "...after floods, plagues, threats, and wars don't work, God decides to torture and kill his own son as a last-ditch effort to convince all humanity to worship him." That's some strange kind of morality, surely. But that's talking about the triune god, not just the physical manifestation of Jesus. I'm pretty sure that's the one to whom you referred.
