Jesus, the whipping boy. How is this moral?
I also did not understand this till I was about 40. 40 years as a quasi catholic and did not "get" it, never thought it through. It never occurred to me that god could be so vindictive as to kill his own son as blood money. When a fundie explained it to me I was horrified and said "you have got to be kidding" which in turn horrified the fundie. That was a big step for me. Your own son as blood money. God as the original and worst mafia don.
Yaweh is some kind of pain vampire apparently, that feeds on suffering. It's all so Lovecraftian.
A sado-masochistic pain vampire to boot, it just keeps getting better.
