I posted my rant about people telling me their prayers were answered on facebook. The first comment on it was…
So even if a god was shown to exist through demonstrable phenomena, you wouldn’t want to worship/know/follow it unless it lined up with your standards of character?
My standard is compassion. If god is not compassionate, the you’re god damn right I wouldn’t worship him. I wouldn’t even stop at not worshiping him, but would actively oppose him.
This underscores the horror of religion. Compassion and suffering take a backseat to whatever god supposedly commands, which results in a lot of people doing completely cold, and often inhuman things. No good person accepts a wicked master, and the implication that I should adopt the failings of the faithful just flat out makes me sick.
I’m going to take my nap now. You lovely commenters can just destroy this so I have something to make me smile when I wake up to board my next plane.
