And in a measure, this impulse to flight can be understood. I can understand that common-sense men should be cold toward the Caucasian God and that they should even renounce and denounce him. I will go so far as to say that I can more easily understand the atheist, than I can many of my own friends who pathetically try to love and adore their capricious un-Christ-like Deity. To my certain knowledge, many of them are doing it against their own natural and better instincts, because they dare not forsake the tradition in which they have been dyed. “I try to love God and I can’t,” has been said to me many a time by conscientious people who felt that the fault must lie in themselves. There was no fault in themselves. If their God could have been loved, they would have loved him.
