But our right-wing brethren

..always exclude themselves from this so-called "evil" humanity, thus begging the question and exposing the intellectual and manipulative dishonesty of their quest for power and control over others.

Look at it this way: If "God," whether your concept of deity is Hairy Thunderer or Cosmic Muffin to use P.J. O'Rourke's shorthand - created a human race, knowing we would be "evil" - save a few Supermenschen who became thus through - I don't know, going to right-wing seminaries and buying into right-wing political correctness - then such a god is either stupid or not as powerful as his fan club claims. Or, perhaps, Tom Waits' revealing insight, "You know there's no devil/it's just God when he's drunk..." applies. Either way, "worship" of such an entity in the manner his archons deem proper does not logically follow. It's an interesting conundrum, but it reveals the sheer moral and logical bankruptcy of the right-wing grift.
