It's fascinating in the way that root canals are fascinating. The way that open-heart surgery played on cable channels. And the temptation is great. Of course I 'd like to think that there is some benevolent, loving force who knows I'm an asshole, expects nothing less, and forgives me per a simple request. You see that right, if not the stupidity then the unfairness of it? Even Hitler thought God loved him.
I don't want to be loved by a God who also loved Hitler.
So, there's that.
Look, I know it's hard to be human. It's hard for all of us. You do the best you can, and you try to hurt as few people as possible.
God doesn't need to have any place in it.
