Relgion and Ego

What gives one person the right to arbitrarily dictate hellfire and damnation for the "crime" of belonging to a different belief system? Is it ego that compels one person, because of their "superior" belief, to condemn another because of an "inferior" belief - my god is better than your god, making you less?

When someone jumps and shouts out their epiphany to the world, should the world care because this person is now important? Is that what all this religious sermonizing is about? Broadcasting your importance for supposedly having a communion with god?

Any thoughts?
