Caring for all those dead people not chosen by other gods, She's like the mother Theresa of deities.  I don't know how you can find fault with her.  Especially given what she has to work with.

Why go all the way to Hell when the supermarket on the morning of the Superbowl is much worse??

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.

Lol. I've looked at my options, and I've decided that if Heaven, Hell, and of course God are the same in reality as portrayed in the Bible, I would rather go to hell than spend eternity pretending to agree with him.

Belief in hell is belief in a monster-god. It is a blasphemous, maltheistic notion. We can smile or sneer at Bible-besotted Christians ranting on about hellfire, but this vile nonsense has serious implications. Throughout history, belief in hell has served to justify Christian atrocities against non-Christians--"After all," the self-justification went, "God has much worse things in store for the un-saved when they arrive in hell." Belief in hell contributes strongly to the intrinsic divisiveness of doctrinal religion--for the concept is supposed to be so terrifying that only the most degenerate and evil individuals would reject the offer of salvation, and that belief leads inevitably to the conclusion that non-Christians are evil.


I am NOT saying that all or most Christians think this way--but even if they disagree with it, most Christians give assent-by-silence to this view spoken by the fundamentalist-fanatics among them.


I think it is nothing less than child abuse to indoctrinate innocent children with this disgusting blasphemy.

I prayed for deliverance from the hard world of facts and logic to the happy land where fantasy and prejudice reign. But God spake unto me, saying, "No, keep telling the truth," and to that end afflicted me with severe Trenchant Mouth. So I'm sorry for making cutting remarks, but it's the will of God.

Heretic  you are right

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle
