HATING GOD THE UNTOLD STORY OF MISOTHEISM PDF

The Untold Story of Misotheism Bernard Schweizer This book shows that misotheism is a relevant form of religious dissent, albeit a neglected or suppressed one Adds to the production of knowledge by defining the various forms of God-hatred political, agonistic, and absolute and by giving a genealogy of this attitude Demonstrates how to find evidence of misotheism in texts, even when the signs are hidden Hating God The Untold Story of Misotheism Bernard Schweizer Description While atheists have now become public figures, there is another and perhaps darker strain of religious rebellion that has remained out of sight—people who hate God. Sifting through a wide range of literary and historical works, Schweizer finds that people hate God for a variety of reasons. Some are motivated by social injustice, human suffering, or natural catastrophes that God does not prevent. Some blame God for their personal tragedies. Schweizer concludes that, despite their blasphemous thoughts, these people tend to be creative and moral individuals, and include such literary lights as Friedrich Nietzsche, Mark Twain, Zora Neale Hurston, and Philip Pullman. Schweizer shows that literature is a fertile ground for God haters.

I wonder if the concept of "misotheism," which fills a gap in the system of religious classification, will spawn a following, one that either applauds the literati of his mentioning or alternatively stands up for their own views which, I surmise, may have been subconsciously tucked away. Mister Schweizer is shedding light on an area, which has surprisingly enough remained unnoticed until he blew some cobwebs from the book-covers of the classics and opened their content to a fresh viewing.

Aware of the diverse emotions the misotheistic view may elicit, I hope the mere observation of an intellectual and literary stratum does not attract a negative response in defense of a deity whose existence amazingly enough is not questioned but in a twisted manner reinforced by the misotheists. A believer in God may have a "problem" with Satanism as a form of opposition to her deity, but a negative reinforcement of God might be a worse position yet — and so the miso-misotheist would be born.

I congratulate Mister Schweizer for the discovery of a phenomenon hiding in plain sight. In response to the increasing attention being given to atheists such as Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, this book seems to have found an emerging populace that have become increasingly more vocal about their feelings of discontent towards God.

In this book which I have read and really enjoyed Schweizer explains how this sort of god hatred has been around for many years, and because I was immediately drawn to this book because it presents a completely new class of religious rebellion. In this book which I have read and really enjoyed Schweizer explains how this sort of god hatred has been around for many years, and because of the fear associated with expressing such blasphemous beliefs, was expressed primarily through literature.

When I look at the world today, with increasing secularism, religiously motivated mass bloodshed, and considerable feelings of disillusionment in personal faith, this book seems to outline a lot of the sentiments that have apparently been around for a long time, but have not, until now, been openly discussed.
