Telling God to shut his mouth

Reader comment on item: The Rushdie Rules, 25 Years Later

Submitted by Wallace Schwam (United States), Nov 10, 2014 at 11:18

Does everyone understand that God is a captive of militant Islam? Yes, he's locked in a closet somewhere and beaten whenever he protests. It happens when a set of symbols, known as a book, is substituted for real spiritual growth. When will the prisoner snap his bonds? When will he chastise the little men with big hats? When will he again inspire remarkable men and women to pursue true spiritual greatness? Soon, I hope.
