People don’t even want to hear the preacher spill or spiel
Because God’s whole card has been thoroughly piqued
An alternate interpretation of “because God’s whole card had been thoroughly piqued”:
It makes more sense to read: “Because God’s HOLE card has peek thoroughly PEEKED.” Peeking at a hole card (a card dealt facedown is “in the hole” and is only supposed to be seen by the player) is a common term in Black Jack and other games with “down” or hole cards. Heron is saying: People don’t want to listen to the Preacher’s spiel (sermon) because God’s secret card in the existential poker or black jack game (of life) has been seen (exposed, visible). God’s hole card has been thoroughly peeked, and we see through the myth of milk and honey to the blood and tears.
