“One would have thought that God had better things to be doing than calling for the execution of an impudent Irish comedian or a Danish cartoonist. Or is she really that sensitive?”

    I agree with this statement – except for referring to this concept of god as “she”. Monotheists, by definition, say there is only one god. It, if it exists, will not reproduce at all and therefore will not need a sex.

    IO’D is one of the few ‘out’ atheists in Irish journalism and his style is one of levity, so I’m sure he is only trying to rile theists (I read his column every day in the Irish Independent) but still…

    Funny Arch! When you take what religious people say about god and lay it out on the table it never paints a particularly complimentary image of the almighty.

    It is always a nervous and insecure nay-bob, whiny and terrified about who recognizes his position. Like my boss.

    You have my sympathy boss-wise. As a retired person, I don’t have that problem.

    I could reveal far too much about myself, if I was to say just like my boss, too. Oops – I own the joint!!!
