One of the more facile assertions made by Christians when stumped to explain the inconsistencies in their beliefs, what they believe and why they believe it, is to claim the atheist who raises the issues, “Just hates God”.
The atheist stock answer is usually the valid, “How can I hate something that I don't believe exists”?
The religious are not renowned for the ability to think logically (otherwise they would not be religious) but let's just apply some logic to the assertion of hating God.
If you are a Christian your believe there is only one god - yours. Quite obviously you therefore reject the existence of Apollo, Atlas ….... Baal, Brahma …...Dionysus ….Ganesha …..Odin …... Thor …... Vishnu ….... Xenu …..... and Zeus or any of the other thousands of gods worshipped by mankind since the dawn of recorded history.
Do you, as a Christian, hate these gods? Of course you don't. You simply reject them, ignore their existence, and perhaps think that anyone who believes they exist and worships them as being wrong, infantile, unthinking, illogical and stupid. And if believers in some other deity should attempt to enforce their beliefs, culture or strictures on you, you will be very quick to oppose such moves, attack the proponents, explain why their beliefs are wrong and why you are not going to put up with it.
It is that simple. We don't hate your god. Truesbob!
“I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours”. - Stephen Roberts
