Until that atheist glances their way again... then once more, God is Love, can't get much simpler than that, man, your arguments against that silly version can't touch my faith. It's familiar territory. Get into an argument with someone over Christianity or Islam or any of these dominant faiths, and you'll see them flicker back and forth between the abstract and the real god of their religion — their only defense is to present a moving target.”</let> </hide><if not flag=$including><let name=docat val=1 /><call ShowLinkData /></if>
