11) Christians are the second religion which their priests and nuns are clibate. The first religion is Buddhism

Buddhist texts were written down during Jesus time and one Indian monk Nagarjuna elevated Buddha to become "divine" and formed today's Mahayana Buddhism. Gospel was written down 200 years after Jesus and the gospel was translated from the Indian Sanskrit Buddhist texts. There were actually 20 gospel writers but only 4 were taken by the Vatican to be correct.

So Jesus being human and divine actually got the idea from the the Indian monk

Christianity = Buddhist cult

Christianity is the second religion which their priests and nuns are celibate. The first religion is Buddhism.

Further to this, notice the same method to used to honour great people who served the Vatican. They were made into Saint. Mahayana Buddhist China honours their great people by making them deities. When the Christians making joke about "Tua Pek Kong", they are actually laughing on their own self.
