“God Wants Peace”

“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



Johann Most

“If god desires that we know, love, and fear him, why does he not show himself? . . . If he is omniscient, why bother him with private affairs and prayers? If he is omnipresent, why build him churches? If he is omnipotent, how can he permit that we blaspheme? If he is just, why the supposition that man, whom he created full of faults, shall be punished? If we do good only by the grace of god, why should we be rewarded? If god is inconceivable, why should we occupy ourselves with him?”

–Johann Most, The God Pestilence


Gervais

“If I believed in an all powerful God, I’d also believe he could murder innocent people without me getting involved and doing his dirty work.”

–Ricky Gervais
