Sympathy level for the idiots who gave him the money - zero.

Sounds like something Brian Tamaki should jump into. Much easier to deal with than all the $50 notes.

The universe was created by an immensely powerful, but not omnipotent or omniscient, spiritual being. In fact, the universe was created by accident. Maybe God spiiled some stuff and it mixed together and exploded.

Now, He runs around trying to clean up the mess occasionally, but mostly he just watches to see what happens.

For worship services, people do science experiments, especially chemistry, in the hopes of emulating the divine creator of the universe, discuovering some amazing thing just by chance.
The Church if England beat you to it - that's pretty much their religion.

My religion has young women earning their way to heaven by bestowing sexual favours on the pope, which is me.

Did I mention I am a registered pastor at the Church of Mary Jane? (not a religion started by me)

Morals are a bastard alright.

If I were able to suspend my morals for personal gain I have no doubt I'd have been Prime Minister years ago. I blew up my political career at 21 because I refused to lie for the cause.

In the beginning, there was some stuff, and the stuff was without form and void, but the Lord mixed it together, and said, "Oh shit!" as it started expanding and glowing and doing all sorts of crazy things. And the Lord saw that some of it was pretty frickin' cool, so he didn't wipe it up. Day and night passed. The first day.

That's pretty much right on the money.

Worship the sky-fairy because it might be a good thing, but nobody goes to hell, so let's go and hug random strangers.

Hey, at least they don't feature much in the molesting kids stories.
