No parent is going to be thrown into jail just for bringing a child into existence.
Then understanding what he wants from us is the rational thing to do, and ignoring him altogether is a non-rational thing to do. It amounts to avoidance of reality, living in denial.

Maybe not, but if they threaten their child to abuse animals then probably.
Denying your own freedom and happiness is living in denial
If the god does not respect free-will then that god is on the same mental level as an immature human being
Or, in other words, you won't accept any God who doesn't allow reality to conform to your own wishes.
If he did bring you into existence, then he brought you into existence whether you like it or not.
And if your continuing existence depends on him, then it depends on him whether you like it or not.
I wish you luck.
