Quote# 3317

Without God, the baby [David's son, killed by God in 2 Samuel 12:13-19] wouldn't have been alive in the first place. Killing David wouldn't have taught David a lesson (how can you learn a lesson when you're dead?). Showing the effect his sins has on those he loves would and did teach him a lesson. The death of your beloved child is much more likely to change your ways than your own death.

It's not an 'effect' of his 'sins' if God decides to murder an infant.
There is no causal relationship.

Also: what a prick.

You mean the poster, or God?

Little from column A and a little from column B, Darth.

I'm consistently amazed by how they manage to make God sound like a tyrannical dictator who would make Stalin blush. Killing your kid because you fuck up ... there's nothing even remotely \"merciful\" or \"just\" about that.
