RIchard Dawkins, The God Delusion, entry 1

Here's the opening sentence of The God Delusion, Chapter 2:
"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving, control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sado-masochistic, capriciously malevolent bully." (pg.51)
I hate to say it to my believing friends, but I've read the Old Testament, done some studying of it, and this isn't far off...
