I think Howard was trying to use Jesus as an example of someone who died, 
and still became a god.

I think it's a poor analogy, since Vlad bears about as much similarity to 
Christ as Loiosh does to Mary Magdaline.

But hey, it's a valid point that dying doesn't necessarily mean he doesn't 
get godhood. I just don't think it's going to happen.
