As the late Mr. Hitchens observed, the essence of the master/slave relationship.

Is not "as long as you obey him" a condition?

So true Dave.  I had 2 miscarriages.  Why did 'god' let me get pregnant twice (and I was trying to get pregnant!) and then have me miscarry?  Oh wait, maybe the 'devil' did it.

Given the number of children who have died at or before birth, god is also the number one abortionist bar none.

It's all part of the advertising campaign. Christian messaging is a ragtag collection of purr words such as "unconditional love" and "infinite bounty" and "mercy," etc., that have no connection whatsoever to the supposed official doctrine, the bible. The flock come bleating, "give more empty calories, pleeeeeeeeeze."

"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully..."
-- Richard Dawkins

'Nuff said.

If the story of the great flood is true, then the god of Abraham is by far the most prolific mass murderer in the history of man. Think about how many men, women and children were drowned in corners of the world that would have had no reason to even know about this localized god. It's hard to obey something you have never heard of, yet this unconditional loving entity smited the crap out of them anyways.

Yep.  I keep saying this, but I'm a better parent than 'god.'  My love for my children has NO conditions attached to it. NONE.  I will ALWAYS love them and put them first. ALWAYS.

No kidding, especially considering:

But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me.
-- Luke 19:27

Swell fella, this god...
