From Joan Covici:

Re: Angry God, angry people (Feb. 28): I want to say how pleased I am that you published this. It has long been my contention -- especially since having support from Richard Dawkins in The God Delusion -- that the angry God model has over shadowed Jesus’s “love thy neighbor,” “forgiveness,” and the Ten Commandments “thou shalt not kill.”

I am an atheist (coming out of the closet), but the fundamental religious groups in my state think of nothing but whipping children, killing in general, and revenge. We need to point to where this is largely coming from.
