It is the hyperbole that is to suffice when they are doing the balancing act of serving two Gods at the same time that must be a cause for either of the Deities to smile in omniscience. Would that their omnipotence were to overrule the impotence of potentates in poverty. Amazingly, there were no attempts at cloud seeding this past summer to prove that liberal man has finally overcome the limitations of Almighty God who, alone apparently, is the only one who can MAKE the rain to fall on the just and the unjust. One wonders why, with a perception of consistency of reward and punishment, the unjust are included in the fall (of the rain, of course). Or, is the redemption of the earth dependent on the repentant and penitent souls of men?
