Christ appears without being asked

John Shore tells his story:

“The split-second before I very suddenly became a Christian, I couldn’t possibly have been less of a Christian.  If anything, I was anti-Christian.   The religion struck me as ridiculously immature, a way-too-obvious system designed mostly to capitalize on people’s guilt: Big Daddy in the Sky knows you did wrong, but will love you anyway if you’ll only admit that he’s perfection itself, and that you’re a wretched, sickening sack of sin.

Please.  I always figured that if I wanted Father Knows Best, I’d watch TV.”
