Go read the excellant posts linked at RodneyOlsen.net. Jeremy Pierce's standard blurb about the Carnival:
The Christian Carnival is a weekly collection of some of the best posts of the Christian blogosphere. It's open to Christians of Protestant, Orthodox, and Roman Catholic convictions.

For examples of past carnivals, see the Christian Carnival archive.Read more!

The person holding forth the position that God did not feel anger, or joy, or any other emotion related it to the theological positions of Aquinas and others. Most of the comments by "Benyachov" were fairly rude and arrogant - but the main point seemed to be that to believe that God has emotion is an unwarranted characature of God:
