Response to beam me up scottie (Reply #3)

8. Christianity isn't easy

One of the reasons I'm an atheist is the impossibility (for me) of believing in the words of Jesus enough to actually act on them (I realize Xianity isn't the only alternative to atheism, but it's how I was brought up). To follow Jesus, we must do exactly what Stephen Fry says the Pope could do to rehabilitate catholicism, and I'm not willing to sell everything I own and give the money to the poor. This is one of the central messages of Jesus, and one people who like to call themselves Christians to a man/woman fail to follow.
