Lictor

Who is Lictor? Well...
Kipling never said of me :
"Down the desert, down the railway, down the river,
Like Israelites
From bondage so he came,
'Tween the clouds o' dust and fire to the land of his desire"

And Tennyson certainly never described me thus:
"Most blameless is he,
centred in the sphere of common duties, decent not to fail in offices of tenderness"
Got it yet? As a hint, make reference to J.L. Mackie essay "Evil and Omnipotence";
If God is truly Omnipotent, truly Good and, if Good is the antithesis of Evil, how come I'm not two inches taller?
That one's got the Theologian's stumped.
Coincidentally, while J.L. Mackie was lecturer in philosophy at University College, Oxford, he once said:
"Lictor's one fine hunk of man love."
Actually, that's a lie, but it's a good lie and J.L. Mackie and I are sticking to it.
