How can you say that Jesus was a great man at all?  All that his teachings have done is distract people from real life, they have sent the message that to try to achieve in life is not admirable, that people should focus on pleasing the invisible bearded man in the sky.  Messianic religions are nothing but an excuse to detatch oneself from the world instead of working to improve it.  Jesus tells people just what they want to hear: that its the thought that counts, it is self aggrandizement at its worst.  Jesus is nothing but the ultimate pornography, a preacher of self mutilation in place of self-fulfillment.
