Have you heard that line? “It'd be funny if it wasn't so sad.”
I heard it again the other day as an atheist was raging against the God she doesn't believe in.
Why was she doing something so illogical?
Because, she said, God is going to “torture good people.”
Atheists, you see, demand justice. They want things to be fair. Atheists hate it when bad things happen to good people (them).
If it would be funny if it wasn't so sad, but atheists also hate it when good things (salvation) happen to bad people (everyone else). Like the criminal on the cross, or the criminal down the street. Oh how they howl in protest at the thought of Jesus' forgiveness being given to those who are morally in need (in reality, all of us).
