55-75% of the population of the United States believes in imaginary and invisible fairies who serve an all-powerful invisible mega fairy. The mega fairy supposedly conveyed messages to illiterate ancient people's indicating that you will suffer for all eternity in the afterlife if you don't choose to believe in the mega fairy by proxy his normal human messengers without any evidence whatsoever but must have "faith." The lack of any evidence or sign is to assist you with believing without any basis for belief aka "faith." Oh, and those messengers want to dedicate their lives to spreading his message, so if you have faith you must give them a certain percentage of the annual income you work for so they can avoid doing any work. Oh and they shouldn't pay taxes because they are dedicated to the big fairy. Oh but you get something in exchange! If you confess all your blackmail material to them, they will forgive you for all your wrongdoings on the magical fairie's behalf so you don't have to feel bad about the horrible things you've done that have hurt others.
Seriously? You don't see ANYTHING wrong with that? There is more evidence for alien abduction and crop circles than any organized religion. That isn't a prejudice it's sanity. And while money grabbing is inflammatory phrasing it is an accurate assessment of what is happening. Even if the person asking for the money is legitimately one of the 55-75% who have somehow gotten this odd idea any of that could be rational or sane that only relegates him to the same rank as the crazy bum begging in the subway.
