That is the major problem with all those who put faith in religions.Unconditional love!
The true God is a MORAL God.
They can see, as I saw, that the suffering of all forms of life make it plain that if a creator exists, it is a mean S.O.B.
That is what keeps people in religion in fear and in turn begging and groveling to the imaginary being in the sky.
I believe that no creator exists or ever existed to in turn punish those who refuse to grovel.
I suggest that nature is cruel, but it has no intention to BE cruel.
