|Lastly he needs to deal with the fact that according to mainstream Christianity a lot of people who don't deserve it are going to end up in Hell.|
I beg to differ: According to mainstream Christianity, everyone deserves to end up in Hell, because everyone is maximally disgusting and sinful and evil JUST BECAUSE. So sayeth the lovely, life-affirming doctrine of Original Sin, don't'cha know.
I find it extremely telling that original sin derived from curiosity and the desire for knowledge. Well, if you believe one version of the fairy tales that is.
Somehow I got the impression that "orginal sin" was actually, you know, doin' it.
At least all the bluestocking Bible-thumpers I was exposed to seemed to think so.
