relativistic forces at work on our society (Maxwell; Genovese)

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] Elder Neal A. Maxwell, BYU Devotional, August 1992
