One writer recently observed that the relativistic forces at work:
should warm every atheist's heart. For if God is a socially conscious political being whose views invariably correspond to our own prejudices on every essential point of doctrine, He demands of us no more than our politics require. [H]ow would our worship of [this kind of being] constitute more than self-congratulation for our own moral standards?
The writer continued:
As an atheist, I like this [kind of] god. It is good to see him every morning while I am shaving. [Eugene D. Genovese, "Pilgrim's Progress,"The New Republic, 11 May 1992, p. 38]
