"God loves you like a Father. No matter where you go, he always knows where you are. You can't hide from the love of God. He just wants you to let him show you how much he loves you and all that you have to do is let him. No matter what is happening in your life, God is always there to love you."
Not said directly to me, but delivered as part of a sermon that some unusual circumstances caused me to attend. It didn't help that the message was delivered by a grey-haired old woman using a sing-song voice. I had to wonder if that's the kind of thing going through the minds of pedo-priests and they're seeing themselves as bringing such 'love' into the physical realm.
I was once in a discussion about atheism v christianity with this guy on the belief.net or whatever that web site is called. I was quoting something Carl Sagan said and he came back with the reply that Sagan died because he was an atheist. I asked him, I wonder why christians die then and he gave no response. Not a very lively debate... but I thought it was strange statement to make. Some people really do not think before they speak and apparently they do not read what they post or how they post things online.
That reminds me of something Terry Pratchett wrote in one of his marvelous novels, about one of the downsides (and the only one so far) of being atheist is that we have no name to take in vain when something bad happens. I've been trying a few things out, but "Oh my Flying Spaghetti Monster!" doesn't quite roll of the tongue like "Oh my god!". Suggestions?
