I really don't know what that has to do with "do as I say and
not as I do."  Do you?  Aren't you just a little off the
beaten path?

Utter nonsense!  I don't make ethical boundaries for my children that
I was unwilling to adhere to myself; your god did.  Again and again.
He was a petty tyrant who didn't know right from wrong for thousands
of years, yet condemned people to eternal torment for doing much
less harm than he did.  He's an asshole, and hardly anybody to be
respected by anyone.

As for my pacifism, I don't insist that mesquitoes adhere to my
standards.  I know they are mesquitoes and have their own way of
life.  And, I certainly don't lay down standards for them then
in the next breath flaunt those standards in their face whilst
punishing them for eternity for not adhering.

I would think even you could see that qualitative difference.
