I think he meant the impression that Ingrey hates the gods.

I know that Horseriver does. I also think Ingrey does, a little, because
they were used to not lend a hand in his toil, and he knew he was forever
separated from them. He expected neither mercy nor punishment, I suspect, so
he could hate them. When they barged in his life (when Ijada stormed him for
them), he is confused and can eventually rebond to them. Ingrey is not
devout, but he is so indoctrinated in the fact that he is defiled, accursed,
sundered, that even though he closes himself to the glory, he takes upon
himself the punishment (as Ijada said, very Ingrey-like - to see only the
black side...)

Ingrey does hate the gods in a way, but on the other way, he starts turning
to them, slowly. IMHO :)

You have two hands. One to help yourself and one to help others.
