Those False Gods Can Be A Real Pain In The Ass

Ran into a post to this article on MetaFilter -- Monk arrested over 'magic' turtle fraud

My favorite part of the article:

Secretary of State for the Ministry of Cults and Religions, Chhorn Iem, said he had lost count of the number of fraudulent monks and gods that came to his ministry's attention, but that it lacked legal experts to intervene and ensure these religious frauds felt the full weight of the law.

Yeah, old Yahweh had the same problem. He even made it his First Commandment. He figured out how to solve the problem, though. Rercruit the right people to work for you.

"Tuez-les tous; Dieu reconnaitra les siens."("Kill them all; for the Lord knoweth them that are His."
Arnaud-Amaury, Abbot of Citeaux, 1209, when asked by the Crusaders what to do with the citizens of Beziers who were a mixture of Catholics and Cathars. Source
