Well that hardly seems fair, and God hated a hell of a lot more of His

In other words Jesus was a damn liar telling disgusting and terrifying
tails to His children for no other reason than to get them to do what He

So God arranged things so that we would torture Him to death because then
He could forgive us for eating a apple. You really have to teach that to
children when they are very very young, if you waited till they're 17

us a cure for bone cancer would be more appreciated than the stupid cross
