It is disheartening to listen to anyone who believes their country is right no matter how wrong. It's even harder to hear someone misguidedly defend a foreign country with that same ignorant thinking. But few things sound more wrong than someone reducing a reputed God of the Universe (right?) into a puny caricature, one who is so jealous of a little special group of humans on an obscure planet in the suburbs of a small galaxy that they, uniquely, are never wrong.

This is a useful god for people who cannot or will not make moral decisions for themselves. It is not my god.
