I think anyone who believes in the god of Christianity & Jesus cannot claim to be a competent big-picture thinker (with some excuse given for childhood/social indoctrination, which is powerful), but still. If you're going to argue against it at least use sensible arguments. A God radiating love but creating free will such that people can turn against that is exactly what a world with a God would look like.
