"According to the Bible, God was ignorant, a ruthless liar and cheat;
he broke his pledges, changed his mind so often that he grew weary of
repenting. He was a murderer of children, ordered his people to slay,
rape, steal, and lie and commit every foul and filthy abomination in
human power. In fact, the more I read the Bible the less I find in it
that is either credible or admirable."
[Rupert Hughes, "Why I Quit Going to Church," 1924]
