Your god must be small

I ask you to read this well. Thank you, Bryan!

Quest for Whirled Peas

Your god must be small if he compels you
to hate in his name. If he demands
that you sacrifice innocents because
some of them might disagree with you
Your god must be small indeed if
mere mortals can make him quake in fear
of their rebellion, and if that fear
causes him to hire mercenaries
to squash rebellion
Your god must be small if you must
even slaughter those
who worship the same god as you
but in a different way
Yes. Your god is small. Too small
to have made you a man. And so
your god is small
and you are no more than a beast.
