Pagan New York Times Declares War Against God Today
The New York Times published an op-ed Friday that proposes eliminating belief in God - as one of the holiest weekends of the year begins.
Titled "In This Time of War, I Propose We Give Up God," the article claims that God is responsible for "war and violence" and for "oppression and suffering," and suggests that people stop teaching children about Him.
Author Shalom Auslander, who is disillusioned about his upbringing in a religious Jewish community in New York, argues (original emphasis):
God, it seems, paints with a wide brush. He paints with a roller. In Egypt, said our rabbi, he even killed first-born cattle. He killed cows. If he were mortal, the God of Jews, Christians and Muslims would be dragged to The Hague. And yet we praise him. We emulate him. We implore our children to be like him
