As the one-and-only Creator of the Universe, I do not want to be either worshiped or exalted because this would only create separation between myself and my beloved humanity.
The Oxford English Dictionary explains that the name “Pete”
in the expressions: “For Pete’s sake.” and “For the love of Pete.”
