[Video message] How Religion Exploits Jesus to Swindle Humankind

This is an interesting message and commentary about how religion exploits Jesus to swindle humankind. I agree with the speaker Pat Condell that each of us tends to create Jesus in our own image, whether christians or atheists. And christianity tries to suppress the truth about Jesus – for example, Jesus seeks to empower us, telling us about the kingdom of God within us, whereas religious preachers weaken us with ideas of hoping to reach that celestial paradise one day in future while losing touch with reality on earth. And yes, Jesus helped and healed people for free, and does not pass around offering plates, unlike church institutions.
