Default Yahweh - the most unpleasant character in all fiction

Yesterday I attended a funeral for a family member, one of those few occasions that gets me into a church. Always an interesting experience.

There were bibles on every pew, and while waiting for the service to begin my daughter and I passed the time by opening the "good" book at a random page and pointing at a random passage.

Eyes closed, no cheating, this is what came up: Jeremiah 15:6, what a doozy!

Prepare to get winnowed with a winnowing fork.

Trying to justify your deity as a "loving god" is like a game of Twister. Twist it around as much as you like, you're still going to end looking stupid and on your arse.
