The book world is VERY compartamentalized. There is the CBA and the ABA and the twain rarely meets. So the author could have been trying to avoid being CBA'd and therefore dismissed by the mainstream. But I like my other theory better.

I thought the exclusion of "God" was intentional. I assumed the folks had forgotten God long ago and it would take about 12 more books to get them back to that thought. The author is obviously not a secular humanist -- the book is chock full of Christian imagery. It seems to me that the entire world of HG could not exist if anyone still believed in God. Isn't that part of the point? It also seems to me that the folks at the Capitol (who I'd assume would let go of God first) are far sadder and more lost than the folks in the district. To me, that's why they go to such extremes. They have a louder noise they have to block out. 

Stay informed
