Twitter God: 'Insult The Hell Out Of Me.'

Steph Bazzle

"Twitter God" - a social media account that tweets messages as though they come from the Christian God (or at least, from one depiction of him, as a sarcastic guy who doesn't seem to be a fan of discrimination or, actually, religion) has been controversial more than once. In the light of the Charlie Hebdo attacks, though, he's responding to the notion of violence in the name of religious beliefs.

The response from Twitter's God reflected this, inviting people to insult him. He also declared that, as God, he is above being harmed by people speaking ill of him.

Twitter God: I am omniscient, omnipotent, and can take a joke.

Of course, whether the "God" of Twitter is representative of Christian views varies from denomination to denomination, and individual to individual, but there's no question that his assertion that an all-powerful being can take being the center of a joke - and doesn't need anyone to kill others over it - caught some eyes.

Twitter God also directly addressed the logic of killing people to prevent them from speaking ill of a belief system.

It should be noted that there is more than one Twitter account by the name of God, and that other popular ones also condemned the attacks, and any belief system that would encourage them.
