: It would be really easy to say that God has forsaken us and for us to all moan and cry about injustice it to be born into the world of suffering blah blah blah. God did not forsake us. He/She/It gave each of us free will. Some people are going to use their free will to blow things up. Personally I am outraged by it. I hav not been listening to AM talk radio -- I suppose I should and join the freaking knuckleheads. I'm sure they're all banging the drum and yelling about retaliation. But I went the other way and listened to KPFA -- our local lefty station but I was unmoved by it. Someting must be done but I don't know what. I have definitely been blown a little further to the right than I have ever been. And yet my own faith in God remains unshaken. God is in charge. I'm not. I can pray that the hearts of those devastated by this atrocity have peace and I can sleep believing that they will have peace in some way.
I didn't say God had forsaken us.
If there is one, I said I wouldn't be surprised if he just gave up in disgust.
Free-will is good I suppose, but perhaps if God could spare perhaps just a little time in his busy schedule to clarify he is the true God, then perhaps we might be able to get along peacefully without all this religious turmoil.
You believe in God. The terrorists believe in a God. You disagree. Fighting occurs. Go figure what's wrong. It's time to stop treating terrorists as evil incarnate and devils and begin to understand what motivates them and how to stop the fighting. I'm sure all your praying is going to make a big difference. If you really cared you would get off your ass and do something constructive for the victims or donate some money for aid.
