John Cleese - "For me, the great problem growing up in England was that I had a very narrow concept of what God can be, and it was damn close to an old man with a beard [...] God was treated like this powerful, erratic, rather punitive father who has to be pacified and praised. You know, flattered [...] I really did expect a golden haze to descend gently on my shoulders. Eventually, I switched out of disappointment to atheism."
Atheism, Religion, God is Good, God is Love, God Loves You, God is Imaginary, Hell, Torture, Money, Tax the Churches, George Carlin. ...He loves you and he needs money! He always needs money! He's all powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullshit story. Holy shit!
