To everyone who keeps on including Hohenheim in the "Bad Dad" trio with Gendo Ikari and Grisha Yeager:

Remember this:

And remember this:

And let’s not forget the reason WHY he left:

If an absolute nut-case was planning on sacrificing an entire nation of people to absorb God and rule, would you just dick around with your children, let it happen and let them die, or would you sacrifice the happiness you have wanted for so long in order to find a way to stop those plans and implement that plan? Which one would have been more ass-holish?
