God's divine obtuseness

God gave his angels painless lives, yet cursed his other children with biting miseries and maladies of mind and body; mouths justice and invented hell - mouths mercy and invented hell - mouths Golden Rules and forgiveness multiplied by seventy times seven and invented hell; mouths morals to other people and has none himself; frowns upon crimes, yet commits them all; created man without invitation, then tries to shuffle the reponsibility for man's acts upon  man, instead of honourably placing it where it belongs, upon himself; and finally, with altogether divine obtuseness, invites the poor, abused slave to worship him!

- Mark Train, The Mysterious Strangers.
