Presumably because the arrangement of ones and zeros took hours of someone's life... they should really get paid for that. Aside from the lotto winners (angry birds, etc) the vast majority of developers make less than minimum wage off the apps. I have one that's sold close to a thousand copies and I'm still only at about $5.50/hour. So while stealing is clearly the wrong word (since you didn't deprive me of anything); copyright infringement applies and you should really feel pretty guilty -- particularly if you find my app useful.

Is your quote supposed to be something he said that was wrong (is that even a quote)? I think he got it right. The god written about in the old testament is a horrible person, and all those things are definitely aspects of the character as written; not that I think that's who modern Christians are worshiping -- they like a cloudier version made of Love or something.
