17. Because their "wants" and everyone else's "needs"
are in direct conflict with one another. They want what they want, and they don't particularly care who they have to hurt in order to get it. We defy them, and stand in their way. Therefore they hate us, and hurt us.

The lower-level "family values" 'Pukes are weak, easily-led, and morally bankrupt. They want to be better than everyone else someday, and they want rewards that prove that they're "special"--whether on earth, or in the murky kingdom of their vicious fundamentalist God. To them, religion isn't about making people's lives better. It's about an obsession with authority, kissing the ass of "The Boss", and getting "rewards" that others will be denied, so they can gloat and sneer--even in "heaven." They were dumb enough to be convinced that they can hurt as many people as they want, so long as they can "spin" it to sound like it's in the name of God.

If God exists, they're going to be REALLY fucking sorry. I don't imagine that God is interested in technicalities and "spin." He or she is probably more of a "spirit of the law" kind of deity. And it's hard to defend the hatred, the violence, and the pain inflicted upon fellow humans when you were specifically commanded to "Love your neighbor as yourself."
