Religion plays a large part in the lives of most people. What role, if any, does religion play in science fiction?

I've read a (unintentional?) funny book by a danish author. A guy with a time travel device goes mad, believes that everything bad comes from christianity, and therefore decides to go back and kidnap Jesus - he couldn't kill him, because that is what happened in the first place. The people in Palestine are very quick to make a goldfish their new religious icon. Jesus is brought back to present day Copenhagen (apparantly you cant alter the present), where he is horrified by the´way the churches use him and "his father".
Unfortunatly I dont think there is a translation to english...
I cant speak of the Soviet Union because there are no soviets and it is not a union but an empire. The 4 letters USSR represent 4 lies: it is not a union; it is not a soviet; it is not socialist; there are no republics. http://politikhuset.blogspot.com

It's not the ending, but just a small part of a gigantic story :wink:
