“The religious papers are rather interesting reading just now. It appears that God wants peace in Britain. God wants peace in the United States. God wants peace in the Balkan States. God wants peace in France. God wants peace all over the world, but Hitler won’t let him have it.”

The Freethinker (1942), quoted in The Heretic’s Handbook of Quotations

    Never heard of that but mmmmmm……

    If there is a God then for balance there must be a devil. Maybe Hitler was a devil then, but hold on if God wants peace in all these countries they sure are going against his will, so they must be devils! Does that make Hitler a godly person then? Oh, how about all these religious wars, the crusades etc, not peaceful eh, so these religions must comprise devils too.
    Now I really am confused!
