Nope. Its the same argument as Manifest Destiny. And that also leaves open the greater question of if God loves everyone, then why are the Jews, so-called Jews, getting special treatment or hold a special place in God's eyes?? It seems like propaganda to get the Jews out of Europe and America.

Fagunwa: Thanks so much for your comment. But don't you leave me hanging too.... do the dwarf and the snakecharmer represent God and Satan? I thought Hawkins and the Priest respectively already represented them. I don't have enough knowledge of religion to join all the dots. In particular, I can't understand the ending - how Sophie, who was the daughter of the evil priest, suddenly had the same power as Hawkins to bring the priest back to life. But her priest father didn't have that power...

It disturbs me that on every side I see * systems of control * on the rise: systems meant to keep us under control: whether that be the prison industrial complex, the military industrial complex, or these loopy religious movements: it's the same thing...
