I have found that people who say that God is "utterly evil monstrous and capricious" are usually so self centred and arrogant that that they can't believe that God isn't by their side all the time looking after them as His favourite creation. Or, to put it succinctly, Stephen Fry.
He obviously does believe in God otherwise an atheist would simply dismiss the original question as irrelevant and move on. Why would an atheist consider what he would say when it would not occur to him that there were "Pearly Gates" to stand in front of. Fry is a smug, self satisfied serial controversialist and it is amazing why anyone should listen to him let alone give credence to his conceited blathering.
