“You can safely assume that you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” Anne Lamott

  • Of course. It's the whole truth, nothing but the truth, etc., etc. The "perfect" judeo/christian god consistently displays the frailties that he has inherited from his human creators--a foul temper, a blood-thirsty disposition, a hatred against our enemies, an arrogance that demands worship on one's hands and knees, and a character that is riddled with countless imperfections that are most unbecoming of a deity. But, when you are working with the human imagination, what else can you expect???
