God Says, "Do What You Wish, But..."

"God says do what you wish, but make the wrong choice and you will be tortured for eternity in hell. That's not free will. It's like a man telling his girlfriend, do what you wish, but if you choose to leave me, I will track you down and blow your brains out. When a man says this we call him a psychopath. When god says the same we call him "loving" and build churches in his honor."


-- William C. Easttom II

Irony at its highest. Perhaps Dawkins does have a point when he says that society allows Get Out of Jail Free passes to religion and its subordinates.

OK, that's going in the quotes file.

If that kind of God were my boyfriend, I think I'd get a restraining order.
