It's a curious belief system that relies on unanswered questions. In my belief system, the questions that need answering have been answered; if there remain unanswered questions, they're trivial questions, questions where the answers are unnecessary to the belief.
Religion today isn't answering people's questions. I don't think you can argue with THAT. But people want their questions answered. There are answers, but they're not the answers that people want to hear, and so that's why churches are to squeamish to give them the answers. They just tell people what they want to hear. And that's why it's in the end an unsatisfying experience. The only experience that can be really satisfying is to know God and that means know everything He's revealed about Himself, not just the politically correct stuff.
