"Let me give you a little inside information about God. God likes to watch. He's a prankster. Think about it. He gives man instincts. He gives you this extraordinary gift, and then what does He do, I swear for His own amusement, his own private, cosmic gag reel, He sets the rules in opposition. It's the goof of all time. Look but don't touch. Touch, but don't taste. Taste, don't swallow. Ah-ha. And while you're jumpin' from one foot to the next, what is he doing? He's laughin' His sick, fucking ass off! He's a tight-ass! He's a sadist! He's an absentee landlord! Worship that? Never!"
