Christianity may be more fashionable, but it too requires much faith over the directly observable (and isn't ashamed to admit it). Nothing personal, but you are obviously either self-deluded or a hypocrite.

yes, but it does not cost great amounts (in general) to become a christian. in fact all it takes to become a christian is a belief in christ as the savior of man. sounds pretty cheap to me.

the most a church requests is perhaps some time, and one tenth of one's income (as prescribed in judaic law). i have never heard of anyone going into debt, or mortgaging a house in order to pay amounts his church required.
