    Click bait diary title aside, you seem a decent bloke.

    This note from an unrepentant theist and logical negativist is just to point out that the title "Christ" has nothing one way or another to do with divinity.  It's just the Greek translation of the Hebrew "Messiah", which in turn means "anointed one".

    Plenty of Jews, who would shrink in horror from the notion that any human being could in some way be God, cheerfully embrace the notion that a human being will at some point be the Messiah.

    I gather the idea is that two sorts of people were anointed in the biblical state of Israel: the king and the High Priest. The title Messiah describes someone who takes on both roles.

    The real USA Patriot Act was written in 1789. It's called the Bill of Rights.
