Neal Pollack is the author of The Neal Pollack Anthology Of American Literature and was asked…
The Onion: Is there a God?
Neal Pollack: God does not exist, unless you are my mother-in-law and are reading this, in which case I definitely do believe that He exists, and will raise my children accordingly. But if you’re not my mother-in-law, and she’s not reading this, then He does not exist.
Jim says...No disrespect meant to my mother-in-law. I just liked the quote when I first came across it because it captures an unfortunate truth. Identifying yourself as a non-theist is a delicate thing... can`t be sure how people will react and what the consequences might be. This really is too bad.
