I know that there are Jesus Christ and Allah but these humans are not gods.
Do you mean Mohammad?

No. He was another human, the so called prophet in Islam.

Yes so the quote should have been that these humans (JC and Mo) are not gods. Allah actually is a god by definition, despite being fictional.

Burden of proof is the obligation on somebody presenting a claim to provide evidence to support its truth (a warrant). Once evidence has been presented, it is up to any opposing "side" to show the evidence presented is not adequate. If claims were accepted without warrants, then every claim could simultaneously be claimed to be true.

History isn't written by the victors. It's written by the people with the time machines.

Perhaps Star Wars when Palpatine would be delightful in Saudi Arabia - would He?

To be honest, I'm not too surprised to see these types of findings because I seem to be subject to the same type of biases. I was listening to a really cool song the other day so I was reading the band's wiki page and found myself being disappointed to discover they were fairly serious Christians. It took something away from my respect for the band and my enjoyment of their music, in much the same way that seeing an attractive person then getting closer and seeing them smoking ruins the experience.

I guess my consolation is that at least, hopefully, I can recognize the effect happening and do whatever I can to mitigate it.

I got confused for a moment there, till I realized we are back on topic.
