What in the World?
The angel Maccaroni pulls giant prank on John Smith by telling him to wear magic underwear, move to Utah, and willingly marry more than one woman. The mormon church has gone on to be a model example of kindness, family values, and bike riding.
Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ members found themselves short about 420 children when the US Government decided that Freedom of Religion did not necessarily include the right to underage multiple marriage. Their prophet already in the lock-up, the FLDS church is not sure how much longer they will be able to re-enact Little House on the Prairie episodes.
The U.S. Government asserted its strong anti-cult values when the ATF burnt down the Branch Davidian Compound/Asenal/Worship Center after a 51-day standoff. Unfortunately for the Branch Davidians, including Mr. Davidian himself, most of them were trapped inside at the time and were immolated along with their secret path to heaven.

Church of England HQ
England's King Henry VIII bid adios to salvation and said hello to Anne "Homewrecker" Boleyn, despite the Pope's persistant cockblocking. Catherine of Aragon joined the First Wives Club and an entire church--the Church of England--was created just so Henry could get himself a piece of Anne. You'd think the Brits would be a little more passionate in the sack with such a tawdry dogmatic beginning.

Virgin Mary appearance
14-year old emo girl claims that the Virgin Mary appeared to her in the woods. 150 years later, the town boasts healing waters, 'confirmed' miracles, 5 million pilgrims yearly and more souvenir shops hawking Virgin Mary fridge magnets than anywhere else in the world. In a recent environmentally friendly move, all the neon lights are now powered solely by the Holy Spirit.
First Printing Press

Pope John Paul II sighted in Poland

Post WWII zoning laws give displaced Jews their own State, right next to a bunch of assholes who no one else wanted to live near.
God's memo to Moses: "Cut out the false idol crap, don't kill anybody and for Christ's sake, quit schtupping your neighbor's wife!" Not bad, but the movie's better. Charlton Heston was dreamy.
Britney Spears to play to sold out crowd at Muslim holiest city Mecca. Stoning of the celebrity trainwreck to follow.
To protest the religiously oppressive Catholic Diem regime that controlled the South Vietnamese government, Thich Quang Duc, a Buddhist monk, doused himself with gasoline, sat down, and lit himself on fire. He never moved a muscle. That day Duc became a hero for everyone that would rather burn alive than sit through another liturgy.
