God vs god

I ask everyone to avoid using the word god as a proper noun, as if the word pointed to something unique that actually existed. You don’t want to tacitly concede to the preposterously conceited Christians that there exist no other gods worthy of serious study but Jehovah. So instead say the god Jehovah which would parallel the god Zeus which makes Jehovah just one of 60,000 other gods. If you want be a little cheeky, say Jehovah the god which would connote Jabba the Hut.

Good in Christianity

When I rail against Christianity, Christians usually defend it by saying But what about all the good it does? It provides so much comfort! Offering false comfort to someone in danger is not a virtue. It makes them relax their vigilance. For example, Christianity causes people to become climate change deniers, basking in the warm glow of wishful thinking. Climate change is the greatest threat to them and their families. Another example, it comforts them that religious magic will solve their financial problems, leading them into financial ruin. Another example, Christians are usually anti-environmentalists, imagining god will clean up any mess or destroy the world soon so it does not need restoration.
