Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I guess I am, but look at it this way. According to Christianity, God became a man. In other words, a human being became divine. In that case, who is to say that all human beings aren't divine? But if that is the case, then we have no more use for the God-concept.

This line of thinking is heretical, but it is part of the Christian tradition. And I think it corresponds to the value system of contemporary Europe: Europe is secular, and yet capital punishment is seen as impermissible. Thus, human life is treated as sacred, i.e., divine.
