Thanks N3kro. I'm glad you got the twist. I wanted there to be no question about it, but I think I might have not been easy enough on the readers. It seems it was sort of harsh and some seemed to not approve of it.
It was all about perception...and religion being the biggest dog and pony show that it hit on. It's never my intention to bash religion, of course, but to try and examine similarities between my beliefs, that are surely sometimes very silly, and those of other cultures which I might also think are pretty silly.
It's about the myths and stories used to relate to things we don't understand and to give ourselves some illusion of control over things that are way too big for us to know or have any influence on...about the cruel, but 'just' hand of 'God,' The love of a father for his child and a child for her father, regardless of whether that relationship holds up to the scrutiny of our definitions.
