The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: a greedy, jealous, selfish, self-centered bastard; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent prick. – Richard Dawkins (with some alterations by me)
Yea, thanks a lot, you sick bastard. Thanks for never allowing me to play sports or even run around with my pets/siblings. Thanks for making my parents have to bathe me and help me go to the bathroom long after I would normally need help. Thanks for making me buy a special car just so I can get around. Thanks for not allowing me to be able to get most jobs. Thanks for not allowing to allowing me to go to public venues (like theaters, restaurants, etc.) with comfort and dignity, or even at all.
After it was revealed that those poor women spent ten years - TEN YEARS - being chained up, captured, abused, tortured, humiliated, raped, nobody blamed God. Nobody said "how could God allow that". What they did say was "oh thank god they were found. Praise God, he answered the families' prayers!!" After ten years of ignoring them!!!
