Well I beg to differ pal! When you make positive statements like...

"God is the God of all."
"..all of humanity was created by God"
"...God just wants you to love thy neighbor as thyself and if you are a doer of this Law, you will be justified before God."

...it very much becomes your job, via the 'burden of proof', to prove the existence of this god

Nor is it my job to prove what I believe to be true.
That's right, it isn't. That is why you should always prefix statements like those I have listed above with 'I believe'....e.g -
'I believe God is the God of all'.
'I believe all of humanity was created by God'

Default Church of England Lifts Ban on Gay Bishops

"I am always averse to the language of exclusion, when what we are called to is to love in the same way as Jesus Christ loves us. Above all in the church we need to create safe spaces for these issues to be discussed honestly and in love" - Archbishop of Canterbury, the Rev. Justin Welby
