“On a really simple technical level, it’s not an ideal comparison. Drones aren’t omniscient: one of the reasons where there’s a serious civilian casualty count in the US drone campaign in Pakistan is that it’s hard for drone cameras to distinguish civilians from legitimate targets at altitude.”

Zach Beauchamp on a Texas megachurch pastor’s decision to use predator drones as a metaphor for God in a sermon series. More:

"We need to rediscover how great and how awesome our God is," megachurch preacher Ed Young says in the second of an August lecture series posted to YouTube. "So I thought I would call this series [of sermons] ‘Drones.’"

Wait — drones? The remotely piloted aircraft that also moonlight as tools for blowing up people in Pakistan? They’re what is going to make America rediscover God? […]

Each lecture in the drones series focuses on one of the three basic attributes of the Abrahamic God: he’s omniscient (all-knowing), omnipresent (everywhere), and omnipotent (all-powerful).

Apparently, so are drones.

"Drones would be a sort of a microcosm of who God is," Young preaches in the third lecture, before briefly explaining each attribute.

This is bizarre on every level.
