This Is True

But can we not assume that everyone who talks of God is a right assclown like Hitler?

Not everyone who speaks of God is bad, either. People like Gene Robinson and Desmond Tutu are good men who speak of God all the time. And remember – there was one German pastor who spoke of God all the time, who was executed because he was involved in planning to eliminate Hitler. That would be Dietrich Bonhoeffer. (Here is a page on Bonhoeffer from the US National Holocaust Museum.)

And let’s not forget that people like Chairman Mao and Josef Stalin were atheists. I wouldn’t call their regimes bastions of peace, harmony and tolerance. Not really.

OK gotta run…back later.
