Ricky Gervais’s Easter message bashes Christianity, again

Ricky Gervais
Ricky Gervais isn't done dissecting Christianity, thank (the non-existent) God. While he previously brought merry good cheer with his "Why I'm An Atheist" essay, published in The Wall Street Journal last Christmas, he's decided to not let Easter go by without another religious-themed gem, this time found on his website.

Gervais makes his usual case, not against Christianity but Christians:

"It's not that I don't believe that the teachings of Jesus wouldn't make this a better world if they were followed. It's just that they are rarely followed."

So before slipping into sweet glucose dreams from your Easter egg hunt, why not gather the family round and see if you stack up against Gervais in his Ten Commandments test? He makes a fairly persuasive case as to why he's a great model for Christianity, despite being an atheist. But in any case, text is not the real highlight of the piece. The real highlight of this piece is Gervais's "Sexy Jesus" picture, posted above.
