Christianity is based on collective punishment. This is still a thing in less civilized parts of the world. Of course modern people are ethically superior to how we imagine the Christian god, since other than the religious conservatives, we've advanced and become better people in the past 2K years.

Right-wing media has put some effort into misleading the easily-misled Conservatives on this topic.

It's not really their fault that they lack critical thinking skills; They're frothing because their masters tell them to froth.

Living in constant fear of imagined enemies is a terrible way to spend your life, but a quarter of the country chooses to be terrified by lying far-right-wing media that plays them like a fiddle, and the rest of us just stand by and let it happen.

This has been a great demonstration as to how easily the ignorant Republican masses are controlled by right-wing media designed to keep them frothing at the mouth so they never stop, think, and realize that the conservative movement is a scam. They'll come out against individual rights, and in favor of corporate masters whenever Fox, wingnut blogs, and hate radio tell them to.

Your post is about what some minority of religious people believe, and has nothing to do with the real world.

Nothing is the domain of "God" because gods are imaginary. You have some seriously out of date, totally discredited beliefs. Why are you still caught up in superstition in 2015? In 1015 I'd understand, but smart people have understood that religion is BS for hundreds of years now, and with the DNA evidence in, there can be no doubt that we evolved, rather than having been created by a magical fairy as primitive man believed.
