A number of posts in this blog feature less than complimentary remarks about a certain white-bearded entity named Jehovah by some. He's wrathful and jealous, turns people into pillars of salt and demands people kill their children to prove their devotion. He's also not at all kind to animals, as is evident in the following hair-raising words attributed to him in a book written by his buddies:
The fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
So that's why every sensible moving thing that liveth, and the insensible ones too, run for their lives when they see us coming. Hugh knew? Laying some of that green herb on us was pretty cool, true, but what has the big J. done for us lately?
I've been tempted to murder my own children on the odd occasion, but not on the demand of a cosmic psychopath. As Bob Dylan puts it in "Highway 61 Revisited":
God said to Abraham "Kill me a son!"
Abe said "Man, you must be putting me on."
God said "No", Abe said "What?"
God said "You can do what you want Abe, but next time you see me coming you better run."
The post "homicidal obedience" features a Caravaggio painting of Abraham, knife in hand, about to slaughter the son in question, Isaac.
