This comment was given in response to a local news agency reporting on the United Methodist Church formally charging a minister for presiding over his son’s same-sex wedding. Does Catherine really think God is pleased as punch with her every thought and deed? You know what? I think she does. It’s been my experience that the more accepting of homosexuality and same-sex marriage a person is, the more likely they are to believe that God does not judge or condemn people’s moral behaviors.
What does Catherine think God does exactly, whats his job?
The attitude expressed above is common in people who describe themselves as “spiritual, but not religious”. Rather than discover God, she has created a god in the image of herself. She has decided what God is like, how he will be. But if you have the ability to decide what your ‘higher power’ is like and can do, it can’t exist outside your mind. Unless of course, you have the power to create God — which I think she believes she can do.
Catherine’s attitude is narcissism at its purist.
