I don't worship Eris. She died with her people millenia ago, and to revive her smacks of neo-paganism (ugh). But the principle is the same. God shouldn't be trusted to do what you want, just because you've been good. That leads to a dependence, which leads to expectations, which leads to the inevitable, "Why!!!" when things go wrong. The real why is, God might not even exist, and if He* does, you'd better not get his attention, cause he's just as likely to kick you in the ass as to pat you on the head and give you a lolly.
I'm so sick of these people who depend on their God to do all their thinking for them. They've got a Bible (or whatever) quote for everything, an aphorism to apply to each situation, and a treachant mindset like a groove in titanium steel. Righteousness replaces thinking. Why bother thinking for themselves when they've had people to do it for them for thousands of years?
But enough complaining. After all, God will sort them out in the end. If there is a god. Atheism is boring, though, so I might as well as believe in something.
I proclaim myself the rabid badger of God. Guard your ankles well.
*Does gender apply to deities? "God" and "He" are shorter to type than "Goddess" and "She", plus I don't want any of you getting the wrong idea. I guess I could say It. Bah.
