Need God/Christian rule sets

  I think we could catch a lot more spam if we had some God/Christian
rules. Not that these rules should generate any point by themselves as
there is a lot of religious non spam. But a lot of spam is enhanced with
God/Christian language. When these rules are combined with other rules I
think it would be very effective. Especially in a spam like:

I am a stranger - I and a devout Christian - I have a large sum of money
that I will share with you - we need to keep this secret - contact me at
my private email address - God bless you.

When Christian is combined with large sums of money and they don't know
you, and want to tansfer the money to you it's pretty clear that spam.
The idea is to create rules that do more than catch phrases but combine
them to catch the whole story.
