RE: Vidictive Dude.
I'm surprised there isn't already a thread along these lines. (Or is there?)

Gather around the campfire for a story, kids:
When I was in High School, there was an elective class on Greek mythology. (I took this class instead of Literature of The Bible because I honestly felt that taking LOTB class would be cheating, as I already knew everything.) The teacher was discussing monotheism vs. polytheism, and she mentioned that monotheistic Gods are always omnipotent while cultures that worshiped pantheons always gave their Gods more human characteristics such as anger and lust. (Hmmmm.)

She had us partner up to make lists of polytheistic God traits. I was a Christian at the time and jokingly mentioned to my partner that our God was a jealous God. She responded with: "Yes, but he's real."

I guess I don't have to point out the irony to you guys.
