In the book of Job contained in the Christian bible, we get a nice little story about god and the devil torturing Job as part of a bet concerning his faith. This is a great story in which the invisible superman in the sky lets the devil kill Job's family and do all sorts of other things simply to prove himself. This is the god we are supposed to worship? This is the "kind" and "loving god" we are expected to embrace? No thanks. (...) Manipulating others by deliberately causing them tragedy just to see how they will respond is evil. This is your god? You can have it.
