Sing Out

The Jewish poet Aaron Zeitlin once wrote:
"Praise me, says God, and I will know that you love me.
Curse me, says God, and I will know that you love me.
Praise me or curse me
And I will know that you love me.

Sing out my graces, says God,
Raise your fist against me and revile, says God.
Sing out graces or revile,
Reviling is also a kind of praise,
says God.

But if you sit fenced off in your apathy,
says God,
If you sit entrenched in: "I don't give a hang," says God,
If you look at the stars and yawn,
If you see suffering and don't cry out,
If you don't praise and you don't revile,
Then I created you in vain, says God."

The point is this...as many of you know, I am an atheist.  I do not believe in a god or a pantheon.  Well, I've decided that I'm an abushist.  I don't believe in Bush.  But just because I curse him instead of looking at the war and yawning, doesn't mean that I love him.  Nonono.  That's not how this game works...
