Interesting information about the dog and praying. I haven't seen the show yet, so I will hold off in my comments. I do agree that some religions, including Christianity is pretty violent. When I read about how God ordered his people to kill not only the thief, but his wife, children, and cattle, because of his actions, I thought that was pretty cruel. Also, God ordered that children be killed who disrespected their parents. And in the new testament, the Bible speaks of the those who reject Jesus being casted in to a lake of fire. Scary stuff IMO.
