Ever heard this, "But my religion makes me happy.  Trying to be more like jesus makes me a better person.  Why would I want to give that up?"  I know you have.  I'll not deny any of this.  Religion CAN make you happy.  People who get better by trying to emulate jesus often DO get better.  How could something do this much good, and still be bad?

Let's look at why religion makes people happy.  Can trying to be more like Harry Potter be just as effective?  Is religion doing this, or is it something else?

Religion trys to be awesome, but it can't beat the awesomeness of this show!
