    I’m of the opinion that god, if it exists needs to be affronted. His/ her/ its morals are not mine in any way, shape, or form

      Clean up your own “room” first.

      Then one doesn’t have to play the hypocrite.

        @griz maybe reality needn’t be the way it is. And besides a god who knows everything shouldn’t be able to be happy, sad, angry, etc. That’s anthropomorphizing in the worst way possible. If you know everything, the only possible reaction to anything that happens should be a bored “meh, i knew it,” if anything. To have any other reaction is, quite frankly, ludicrous, outrageous, and stupid.

        It’s the equivalent of a gnat feeling it could design a better nuclear reactor.

        Our feelings “not liking” manifest reality is a moot point. It will be what it will be — and fancying ourselves as being “a better God” is part of the same infection of thinking much more highly of our imagined abilities than (ahem!) manifest reality proves is there.

        Anyone with a pre-frontal cortex can dream — or blame reality when those dreams don’t magically manifest.

        But that really doesn’t accomplish anything save perhaps on a board game.

        @griz THAT’S the point. God, if it exists, if it created everything… It had the option to do things differently. For it to have ANY emotions is itself acting as the gnat. It goes back to thr joke regarding not lifting one’s arm if it’s known it will hurt, when it needn’t exercised the ability to do so in the 1st place. Why should i, why should anyone recognize such a thing that claims powerlessness to do anything about situations without a combination of obedience, relationship, prayer, patience, and at day’s end, a believer only surmises a prayer is answered, as there’s nothing to back it up. Were someone to say to another “you’re making me angry,” from a scientific standpoint, anyone would be right to call out that bullshit. I’m not in the person’s brain poking around, making connections via electrical impulses or chemical reactions. Yet for god, life, the universe, etc. we are to accept this selfsame behavior and not cry foul? Sorry!

        I think that’s exactly the point.
        You want life to play out like a board game of your creation where you are the ultimate Dungeon-Master .

    Any supersedant ideology is.

    But we need to practice better precision in speech. The early church described in Acts was very communistic, with all things held in common and distributed according to need.
    The healthy extended and nuclear family is similarly communistic.

    So too are the Hutterites, the Kibbutz . . .

    You may be referring to Marxist communism. I find that most Americans fail to make this distinction.
