I think the relation between God is really inrelevant and I don't
want to get in a religion war (those big airplanes hurt :P). FYI: I
don't know about Bruce, but Richard "Impeach God" Stallman is an
atheist.

You should know the relation between Bruce and RMS. They are both
leaders of the Free Software movement (and not of the Open Source
movement, as Bruce has seen that it failed and doesn't support it
anymore). They share at least some of the same ideals.

The relation between them and Debian is pretty clear too. Without
Bruce, Debian wouldn't be as it is today. Without RMS, I doubt Debian
would exist at all.
