Hmm.. My thoughts in regards to your question......
That thought process only works if you believe in hell and eternal damnation because of your beliefs. As someone who was raised Hindu, I do not believe in hell or eternal damnation. However, I devoutly believe in God.
Therefore, I would have to say "No", God is not the original abusive male. God isn't even male, God has no gender, God has no form.. Also one is not punished for their beliefs, or lack of beliefs, All beliefs are equal. All who believe in God, believe in the same One Universal Creator (Whether you call the Creator: God, Vishnu, Brahma,Allah, Jehovah or whatever other name one chooses). So, since all are one. A believer is not "punished" due to the religion they choose to follow or not follow.
