Re: DIY god
This nation was founded by God fearing men on the principals they found in the Bible.
Take that away and what would you have?
If memory serves me correctly when we had Bible reading and prayer in
school this was the most feared nation in the world.
We removed those because it offended a few people.
Now this nation is the laughing stock of the world.
Actually, the nation is a laughing stock of the world because men with an expressly religious bent ran a black box voting coup and decided to start blowing up civilians of other countries who are a different color and religion from themselves, bankrupting their own economy and alienating their own people in the process.
Other than that though, you basically concede Percy's point. God as he exists in the Bible is only knowable via the Bible. Not that there is any problem with that though. I think the problem only arises when funamentalist Christians start to say silly stuff like God can be proven or that articles of faith can be expressed with science.

Of course, biblical creationists are committed to belief in God's written Word, the Bible, which forbids bearing false witness; --AIG (lest they forget)
