Atheists: What surprises you about Christians?

One aspect of Christianity that has always bothered me is the need to believe in Jesus to get into heaven.

Supposedly my father who was abusive is in heaven, because he accepted Jesus and my mother who was a sweet caring woman is in hell, because she didn’t.

I have always found this bit of doctrine unconscionable.
