"I love the sound of this name (apparently it is a common name in Spanish countries) but I wouldn't chose it for my own child - it's just too much somehow. My child shall be a normal child, not a saint or god-like person." Mar. 9, 2007:

"Jesus might have been an ok guy, if he existed at all, but you stupid Christians have distorted him and still use him as an excuse to commit genocide and all kinds of horrible atrocities. All devout Christians at the least should be killed." Apr. 11, 2007:
