Gods, Goddesses & other deities,
as perceived by various religions
Anon: "You can safely assume that you've created God in your own
image, when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do."
Sometimes attributed to Anne Lamott or Fr. John Weston.
Rev. Tony Campolo: "We are furious that the religious right has
made Jesus into a Republican. That's idolatry. To recreate Jesus in your own
image rather than allowing yourself to be created in Jesus' image is what's
wrong with politics."
Jim W. Martyn, "I suggest that people who express hatred towards others do so because they
are unable to love themselves or God. That's sad, and unfortunately causes many of the
social and political problems in our nation and world."
Stephen Roberts, a strong Atheist talking to a theist
about the thousands of gods and goddesses worshiped by humans: "I contend that we
are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you
understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand
why I dismiss yours."
Xenophanes, an ancient Greek philosopher: "If horses had Gods, they would look like horses!"
