Jesus was publically tortured to death for three hours after a night of being savagely beaten and denied food and sleep, and Bill says "Not bad, really"?? Care to try that one, Bill?
And by the way, he was dead before being stabbed by the spear. The spear did not "mercifully dispatch" him.
More killing has been done in the name of political ideology than religion, I'd say, at least in the past few centuries. Stalin didn't care what god you worshipped, nor did Arafat, Allende, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, Hirohito or a whole bunch of others.
