Know Thy God

With the release of the movie Noah, fundamentalists are forced to ponder whether their god is loving, as depicted in the New Testament, or a god who takes psychotic pleasure in genocides.

If one supports the god of Noah and Sodom & Gomorrah, and one assumes these ancient communities were much like today’s communities, the victims of God’s wrath would likely have been made up of the following: people of all ages from the newborn to the quite elderly, people with physical and mental challenges, pregnant women, people who were attracted to the opposite gender and to the same gender, and people with a range of religious beliefs.

Down through the ages, various tribes, cults, religions and dictators have felt perfectly justified to kill all those who were not a part of the “chosen” people.
