God — SIJ* (Social Injustice Warrior)
Recently re-reading Vincent Bugliosi's "Helter Skelter" and thinking about the "good Christian" mass murderer Charles "Tex" Watson, it occurred to me that the God proposed by Christians weighs in decidedly on behalf of killers and reprobates, against the interests of their victims.

Watson (not to mention other alleged converts such as Jeffrey Dahmer and Ted Bundy) exercised his free will to violate the free will of multiple people by slaughtering them mercilessly. Under many Christians' belief system, if his victims weren't "saved," they were instantly consigned to eternal torture. But "Tex," having accepted Jesus as his lord and savior, is "blessed" with plenty o' time to properly repent.

In other words, the violent murderer got a mess o' second chance time, where his victims did not, because he fucking killed them. And even if any had been "saved," they would then have only had the extreme privilege of living in Heaven with their murderer.

Don't know much about Islam, but it seems to me that their view of utter submission to the all-powerful, capricious maniac in the sky — Islam translates closer to "submission" than to "peace," by the way — makes more sense than the alleged "all loving etc." Christian god. Faced with such a monster, maybe submission is all you can really do.

Don't believe any of 'em, of course. But it's remarkable to me how utterly morally degraded the Christian worldview really is.

God does not work in mysterious ways — he works in ways that are indistinguishable from his non-existence.

The whole Christianity/Islam thing is FUBAR.

Not to put too fine a point on it but...Hitler being a catholic , and if he had not committed suicide...could have prayed his way into heaven.

While the "non Catholics" that were exterminated under his regime (under his understanding of scripture) would have gone to hell.

God may "hate fags," but it appears that he grooves on mass murderers.

Why not, he is one himself. People still build monuments to his mythical madness

I once knew a preacher who said multiple times "The Good News is that God Loves You, The bad news is He loves everyone else too!"

Oh, suicide, no prayer - not a problem. After you die, people can buy a priest to read mass for you and you can be saved. The bigger the church, the more expensive the service, and the better the place in heaven. If you get a mass read for you in a Cathedral you got it made.

I'm imagining somebody paying a priest to read mass for Hitler in a catholic cathedral.
