Why is God so angry? Doesn’t God like us anymore?
God is in an evil mood these days, or so I am told. Even allowing for the possibility that there is more than one God this bunch needs some serious anger control training.
God is an equal opportunity hater. He has been quoted as wanting to kill, wound and maim, Christians, Museums, Jews and Pagans alike. Anyone not fully in compliance with his impossible difficult requirements is at full risk of his wrath.
God has not been in this vile a mood since the close of the Old Testament.
God is forever getting credit for things. We hear about acts of God. Mostly these consist of things like flood, famine, and pestilence. God would be doing hard time if he just stuck around at the scenes of his crimes but whenever we go looking for this dude he has snuck out the back way before he gets caught.
The Catholic God seems to be out to get the Protestants and the Protestant God is mad at well almost everyone. Even the Muslim guy, Allah, he has been out bombing and killing his followers, Sunni and Shiite alike, or so I have been told. Can’t prove any of this but, I see a whole lot more bombings and funerals than love fests.
Not sure what all them religious leader-types would do if all of Gods followers ever decide to start liking each other. No more religious wars? What will we do? What will we do?
You’re not like thinking there is any risk of this, are you?
Given the current state of wrath on the part of the various deities, what I am proposing is something like a WWE God smack down. Let all the various Gods wreak havoc with each other and leave us out of the mix.
There is this theory that the problem with God these days is that he is lonely. The Hindus suggest that all the happy Gods have consorts. But then who is listening to the Hindus these days, are they sponsoring any good wars?
If by consort they mean Girlfriends and lovers, that might be what God needs so he gets back into the loving mood. If they are thinking wife, then based on my experience doing marriage counseling, having God get hitched is a bad idea. If you have seen the way married couples fight I am afraid of God and his wife trying to set the world spinning in two opposite directions.
Frankly, this is all very confusing. Why is God, according to his financial advisers, so into wars, hate and killing?
It is not possible that any of Gods handlers and P. R. staff are spinning his positions on things incorrectly is it?
Just exactly who do we need to be talking to if we need some of that unconditional love stuff? Why then is it so easy for all these God followers to find someone to hate and try to destroy?
Oh no! I think I have done it now. Someone is sure to write in and tell me that God hates me and wants me dead. I did vote the wrong way in that last water bond election and there is still that unfinished business with that Beatles album I listened to way back when.
These religious enforcers most likely will be more than willing to do Gods work for him, these folk always aspire to be junior Gods themselves, that deciding on who should live and who needs punishing is so much fun.
But really folks, doesn’t God needs some anger management classes, or maybe a marriage encounter group? It just pains me to see that deity person so unhappy. Anyway, could we get a happy God? One that loves us again? I am just saying—
