It's also something that Jesus said along time ago, so for all your hatred of Christians--and not all misplaced, by the way--in some ways you are actually agreeing with Jesus. Should you want to destroy that which agrees with you? Now, I think that you are a little broad with your brush-strokes, for the problems that you mention are not caused by Christianity but by humanity. To get rid of the problems, you'll have to get rid of people.
