"Let this be a lesson to all of you: ideas are very dangerous things. You are mindless, soil-shopping losers, put on this Earth to serve us."

And the response:

"You're wrong. We are not meant to serve you. I've seen these people do great things, and year after year they've managed to earn money for themselves and you. So who is the weaker species? My people don't serve you. It's you who need us."

Too bad that the original speech was about ants and grasshoppers, because this is exactly how I see modern Christians. They've been told that they are helpless, worthless individuals, when they've managed for years to balance their families and livelihoods with weekly worship, tithes, and sometimes charity work. Meanwhile, their god sits on High, soaks up the attention, and occasionally sends some warm, fuzzy feelings in someone's direction. We can claim that God is worthy of our love until we're blue in the face, but these people would do good to sit down and evaluate what they've done for themselves vs. what God has done for them. If that's not suitable - after all, God is more concerned with our eternal salvation than our daily lives - maybe they should take a look at his track record in the Old Testament.

I've said it before, but one of the first things I learned after giving up God is that I am a much stronger person than I gave myself credit for.
