Let the dark walls of Christendom collapse like the Berlin walls

In 1987 Reagan stood in front of the Berlin Wall and challenged his Soviet counterpart, saying General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek peace, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union….come to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate. Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall. The rest, as we now, is history. 29 months later the forces of Perestroika and Glasnost (restructuring and transparency) brought the Berlin wall down.

Won’t there be a statesman or an ecclesiastical dignitary to call the Pope and tell him: dear Pope, take off the veil of darkness you and your predecessors have put before innocent people like  Communism had done to the Soviets. Let there be transparency in their beliefs. Let each one understand that god-Jesus is a created myth and that he did not start Christianity. He never claimed to be the Messiah-a powerful king supposed to redeem Jews of their slavery. Let the billions  understand that the redemptory process had not been even thought about by God (there is no mention of it in the Old Testament): it was something hatched up in the brain of St. Paul. If God wanted his creation to be happy in this and in the after-life He could have had avoided the simple test he had willed for the first parents. Instead, He sent the serpent to tempt Eve to eat the fruit of the forbidden tree and she succumbed to His wily manipulations. God started roasting human souls in eternal fire from that moment and Christians are told He is love! How can he award eternal punishment for a temporary sin? 

If God gives heaven  to those who earn it only by merit using their freewill, what does he do with half of all mankind– the children who died before the age of ten- who could not use their freewill at all? And  the psychotic, the feeble-minded and the retarded who cannot even manage to survive by themselves, let alone choose freely what they do? Further, as per the latest theories, man hardly enjoys any freedom of choice and hence the whole edifice of Christendom falls down.  Let the billions of people chained by Christianity break open their fetters, become free and enter the land of inmtellectual freedom, light and truth.
