God Is On My Side
The British settlers weren't much better. John Winthrop, governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony, praised God for sending the plague to destroy most of the Indians. Again, God was on the Puritans side, which must of really pissed off the Indians.
Example such as these are seen through out history. People always seem to think God is on their side. Especially Americans. We fight wars knowing that God hates the enemy. Because of this, more people have been killed in the name of God that any other reason. Profit probably runs a close second. If there is a God (I am pretty sure their isn't) she needs to start striking down all these assholes who are giving her a bad name. God is a simple way of justifying our own selfish acts.
The next time you hear some athlete thanking God for favoring him, try to remember all the dead bodies caused by not being on God's team. It will make you want to become an atheist, if your not one already.
