Let's just suppose that you are a god. (Note lower case "g"!)
What criteria would use to select the leader of your faith on your world?
1) He would have to be born into a lazy, indolent family, who hated hard work and was prone to living in delusional fantasy worlds of their own devising.
2) He would have to be of somewhat dubious character.
3) A convicted fraudster.
4) A thief.
5) A confidence man capable of setting up a fake bank using trickery and artifice.
6) A user of black magic including sacrificing live animals.
7) A predatory paedophile.
8) A multiple-adulterer.
9) A panderer.
Would you use that criteria?
