The supreme achievement of this paragon? Crucifying his innocent son! And for what? Why, for sparing the rest of us even fonder parental care. To speak of "love" in connection with such a character, to want to worship him, seems obscene. Yet there is no denying the subliminal fulfilment to many in such cruelty. Like it or not, Christian ritual is a celebration of human sacrifice by torture, with cannibalism.
