Well here it is my children...<quoted text>
He needs to speak up. I can't hear him. All I hear are Christians, and that isn't their message. Christianity isn't about love. It's about obedience and submission.
There you go.
A loving parent would force his/her children to love one another if he had the power. We do our best to conform them to that ideal. Why wouldn't our god do as much for us?
I'm going to hide from you, I'm going to operate a 'hands-off' parenting style, I'm going to be completely undetectable in a world of poverty, savagery, greed and war.
However all I ask is that you love me because if you don't I'm going to send you to a man who lives in the basement who is going to do things to you which would make Hieronymus Bosch pee his pants.
Love ya kids...
