Conspiracy theorist Rodney Howard-Browne, best known for his “Holy Laughter“-based religious ceremonies, was once criticized for not being a Christian.
In a recent sermon, he explained how he responded to that critic: By telling him how God was the only thing preventing him from committing murder.

… So I said to the guy, I said, “You say that I’m not a Christian.” I said, “How did you come up with that?”… Let me tell you how much of a believer that I am. I said, “I am so much of a believer today, that if I wasn’t, I would reach across” — and I’m talking quietly, very quietly — I said, “I would reach across the table right now, I’d grab you by the scruff of your neck, I would take your head, and I would put you in your bowl of cereal till you drowned… If I wasn’t a Christian.“
That’s… not a very convincing argument in favor of religion.
If the only thing stopping him from murdering someone who said something he didn’t like is God, then we should be glad he’s religious. The rest of us have managed to not be murderers without God.
Who’s more ethical? The people who avoid killing their critics… or the guy who would totally murder someone if not for his own delusions?
