Do the attitudes summarized below seem familiar to you?
I’m just curious if you’re all conscious that this is what many of us non-religionists observe of your way of thinking.
- “Killing people (including children) and genocide are immoral deeds, except when ordered or done by my God.”
- “Nothing comes from nothing, and nothing can be eternal, except my God.”
- “I think it’s immoral for someone else to be held accountable for my transgressions, except when the situation involves my God.”
- “I think slavery is wrong, except when it is condoned by my God.”
- “I think it’s wrong to torture anyone, except it’s perfectly fine for my God to torture scores of people eternally without any chance of redemption.” (Note: does not apply to the Christians who have the decency to arbitrarily disregard the verses about damnation)
- “I think it’s wrong to punish people for the sins of their parents/relatives/ancestors, except when the situation involves my God.”
I could go on, but this should suffice.
Do you allow your “god” to commit amazing atrocities? Why?
