There’s nothing, no matter how heinous, which can’t be excused by the ardent believer. Just cling on to the idea that God is unfathomable, and presto, genocide and killing of innocents become moral and justified, though you can’t explain how. ~trj

You do have children right? roflol
The difference being, of course, that we have limited ways to mould our children's behavior. Believers of the Abrahamic god believe that he created us exactly the way he wanted us - remember, he's the omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, all-perfect being. He therefore had the power to create creatures that, if not perfect, are at least better behaved. He has the control, not us. So, if he's angry with his creations, then he'd have to be angry with himself for making his creations how they are, rather than throwing tantrums and punishing his creations for being exactly the way he created them to be.

Once God was satisfied that every bit of his creation was destroyed, he allowed Noah and his crew to start anew, and repopulate the earth through incest. It could happen no other way. His creations continue to disappoint him, even though he knew that they would, being omniscient and all, so he decides that the best way to fix the problem is to impregnate a teenager with himself, through the Holy Spirit, which is also himself, so that he could be born in order offer himself in a bloody sacrifice as way of forgiving the sins of the creations he created knowing that it would come to this. Then, all of the sudden, he stops all communication, and leaves it up to clerks to write, re-write, translate, interpret and misinterpret his inerrant word, even though he says in his book that he wrote that none of it should be altered.
