Two Quotes

1. "They believe that God is all-powerful, but also all-forgiving, and so accordingly feel that it is the Devil whom they must please, as he is the one who rules their lives while here on earth." - Anton LaVey's take on the Yazidi sect (quoted in Wikipedia)

2. "Yama(*) is also 'Dharmaraja', the Lord of Dharma, Virtue. And he is a stern and just judge - handing out punishment to evil-doers. But *this* world and its ways are different. Yama can't do aything about those who live here - his authority is limited to the dead." - from 'Govardhante Yatrakal', a Modern Malayalam novel by Anand.

(*) - the god of death and justice in Indian mythology.
