it doesn't matter what we like

The God I learned about was, to be blunt, a God I wasn't sure I wanted to know.
Doug Pagitt, A Christianity Worth Believing, p. 99

I wonder if I could play the Pharisee card here. After all, the God they saw in Jesus wasn't one that they wanted to know. He ate with tax collectors and sinners, didn't lead a political rebellion, and called them hypocrites and blind.

The point is, this statement has almost nothing to do with whether "The God (Pagitt) learned about" is the true God or one made up.  It's merely opinion.
