Quote: "This gun had a hold on me. I felt this incredible surge of power, like God must feel when he's holding a gun." Homer Simpson
Figure of Speech: anthropopatheia (ANN thro po pah THEE ah), the God is my co-pilot figure.
The anthropopatheia ascribes human emotions to God. Hard as it is to pronounce (it means "human emotions" in Greek), it gets a lot of use these days: among those who feel that their deity has to be their buddy, and those who say, "She’s a woman, and she's pissed."
Snappy Answer: "Good thing God wrote the Second Amendment, then."
