The Test of Hate

"The essayist Annie Lamont has an even easier way to discern whether we have slipped into idolatry, which, you'll recall, is always rooted in our fascination with ourselves: 'You can safely assume you've created God in your own image,' she wrote, 'when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.'"
