  Maltheism
Maltheism is the belief that God exists as a cruel, arrogant, abusive, and untruthful being who is not worthy of worship.
Maltheism further believes that God is dependent on the worship and adoration of human beings for his existence, and that if he is deprived of humanity's worship, he will wither up and die, leaving humanity better off.
Therefore, maltheism seeks to encourage people of all theophilic religions to stop worshipping God in any form, since worshipping an evil God is viewed as treason against the human race.

The Maltheism blog and online introduction refer to people who worship God and believe him to be good as "theophiles", likening belief in a benevolent God to the Stockholm syndrome or to symptoms found on classic cult checklists, in that it is behavior common to abuse victims that come to love their abusers.
Although Maltheism is often incorrectly thought of as just a form of Satanism, it posits that instead of being a real entity, Satan may merely be a pseudonym used by God when overtly engaging in evil acts.

For most of them, there is no hope of their changing their minds about their beliefsā€”so entrenched in them have they become that it's virtually impossible to get out of the rut.
Given their attitude towards religious belief, they would be counterexamples of everything Maltheism actually stands for.
The real intent is to simply give voice to the notion that God is not all he's cracked up to be, to let others who have already considered this notion (or are on the verge of doing so) know that they are not "crazy" for believing it nor alone in considering it.

Of course, pretty much every organized Christian religion (starting with the Catholics) has declared such a belief system to be heretical and, therefore, punishable by eternal damnation and scorn by "right-thinking" monotheists.
Maltheism and Gnosticism are the most interesting (particularly Gnosticism), but the two of them are also among the most-hated by traditional monotheists, since both of them suggest (to varying degrees) that God is actually not omnibenevolent at all.
In fact, Maltheism and several variations on Gnosticism identify God as being actively malevolent.

In 2006, Australian artist Archie Moore created a paper sculpture called "Maltheism", which was considered for a Telstra Art award in Australia during 2006.
The piece was intended as a representation of a church made from pages of the Bible, specifically the Book of Deuteronomy (in which God exhorts the Israelites to commit genocide against the native inhabitants of Canaan).
While some atheists may assert that contradictions and paradoxes in theology and theodicy prove that God does not exist, ultimately they only prove that if God exists he is not of the form and nature usually attributed to him, that God still could exist and be evil.
