An Epiphany Reduced to a Sound Bite

This is a thought that's been running around my head for at least a week.

As has been fairly clear from a lot of what I post, I'm mostly an atheist. I only say mostly because I find the notion of a god - at least a single, omniscient, omnipotent god - extremely unlikely. Not impossible, but unlikely.

In many ways I'm happier without the thought of such a being. If God exists, then he/she/it is directly responsible for human nature and the state of the world, and has a lot of 'splainin' to do.

What I've been mulling over is that I have many friends that believe in such a being, and while I have a great deal of contempt for most organized religions, I have enormous respect for those friends.

And it suddenly occurred to me that I have no problem with God-loving people. I think they're wrong, but that's completely irrelevant.

However, I have nothing but contempt for God-fearing ones. And extreme distate for the thought of an all-powerful deity that would want to surround itself with such spineless sycophants.
