KNIGHT: Living in the devil of a time

A progress report from the CEO of sin and evil

Question of the Day

What has been the biggest debacle on Obama's watch?

View results

As for you, reader, what has God done for you lately? Oh, his followers claim that He’s keeping you breathing, holding all of your very atoms in place and balancing the heavenly hosts so that life can thrive here on Earth — and that He sent His own Son to die for your sins and grant you eternal life.

Remember, though, He’s not as much fun as I am — or appear to be. I play on the keyboard of your sinful nature, and strive, unappreciated, to turn every heart into a black hole of self-centeredness, where that cursed light rarely penetrates or escapes.

So do me a favor. Get out of my way, and let the “good times” roll.

Robert Knight is senior fellow for the American Civil Rights Union and a columnist for The Washington Times.
