Religion Why Do We Hate God So Much?

The author of a local blog about religion—the religious author of a devout blog about ol’ tyme religion—found his way to our “Month of Sundays” feature. His post about “Month of Sundays” is titled “A bunch of writers who hate God do reviews on 30 churches in Seattle,” and he’s got some questions…
I found this article through another blog, West Seattle Blog, and it’s from a publication that I would consider anti-christian or maybe even anti-religious. It’s full of swearing and blaspheme, which is expected, but very eye-opening too in how they percieve religion. Some think back to the days that they were forced to go to church, some are very quick to point out the hypocritical people, and all express their complete disgust for anything that has to do with God. Why do they hate God so much? Any thoughts?
I’m a little busy working on next week’s Queer Issue. But if you have time and some thoughts, gentle reader, head on over to Inward Truth and share ‘em.
Oh, and Inward Truth’s post about “Month of Sundays” is illustrated with a painting of a pack of Christian martyrs being fed to lions in the Roman Coliseum… because having your church reviewed in The Stranger is, uh, just like being torn limb from limb by a pack of hungry wild animals in front of a cheering mob.
Seems like a bit of an overstatement to me, especially considering that we didn’t send Annie Wagner out to review a church service.
