Quote# 59669

[In response to a letter questioning why God doesn't prevent
suffering]

In the horrific situations mentioned, God was with the little girl as she was being beaten and thrown against the wall, and he was with the other little girl as she was falling from the 190-foot-high bridge. The fact that God does not zap people for saying he is a monster or impotent is further proof that God is merciful.

Wait a minute. If god was "with the little girl as she was being beaten and thrown against the wall" and god was "with the other little girl..."

Uh, doesn't that make god an accomplice?

These people's god is a dick!

You're lucky too, because if there was a god, I'm sure he would have his finger on the SMITE button on his computer, waiting for you to walk into his view.

Some people are too stupid to live...

God is a sad, pathetic, impotent creature who does not deserve our worship if this is the case.

God standing by a little girl being beaten and doing nothing is further indication that he is a dick.

You're a cunt, and so is your so-called god.

God is there when you're being savagely beaten. Isn't he merciful?

No sorry, I don't think I can manage the cognitive dissonance to be a Christian.

Your God is worthless.

"The fact that God does not zap people for saying he is a monster or impotent is further proof that God is merciful."
Or further proof that he's impotent... or doesn't exist...

Was your god jerking off the whole time, like his sick-fuck followers?

He was with them? What fucking good does that do? And you wonder why people can't fathom your god.

Your god is uncaring and deserving of scorn.

Call in the coroner. This one's completely brain-dead.

a mind far far away

So if you're elderly, a child, sick, or a believer, god knocks you around like a little bitch, but deny him, call him out on his shit, and spit in his face, and you're fine? Thanks, I'll stay right where I am then, watching your god get buttsecksed by reality.

AAAAAAAAAAAND this is why I'll never move back to North Carolina.

So it's mercy to watch a child get beaten or fall off a bridge? Do you speak english? I ask because you obviously don't know what "mercy" is.

Dear Mayra

I forgive you for your stupidity. It is your parents' fault, of course. I suppose they started ramming the lies about God and Jesus into your credulous little mind when you were very young. Then if was off to church to listen to one of those smartly dressed men waving the buybull around hollering about hell and damnation.

Now it is time to really think about all the rubbish you have been taught. Question it. Does it make sense that this God who is supposed to be merciful commits such atrocities? Think!

Actually, this is NOT from North Carolina.

The "NC" here stands for "North County," which refers to northern San Diego County. Hell, this assclown isn't even from San Diego County. She's just proselytizing (and doing a very bad job at that).

The more I think of the biblical god the more he comes across like a Mafiosi wiseguy or a bent copper.
"So ya gettin' beaten to a pulp, so what? I said I'd watch over ya, well I watched didn't I? Just be glad I didn't zap yo' ass for saying "Goddamnit" while ya was gettin beaten, ya ungrateful scamp. Nobodies got no respect anymore."

Sooo, the nicest interpretation I can get out of this is that God is one SERIOUS masochist, in addition to the sadist part!

I'm at a loss on what to say to this.
So. . .*fistcomputer*

Have you ever thought that maybe god doesn't exist and that's why the girl gets beaten and the other girl falls from 190 ft. and dies, both without any kind of intervention whatsoever? If he can intervene but won't or can't, then he is a complete fucking dick and isn't worthy of worship.

You know, back when I was younger, I didn't stop believing in God because of evolution, or any other bit of science.

I stopped because the idea that some force so apathetic and malevolent existing and ruling our world was very disturbing to me.

As I grew up and learned about science and whatnot, it was something of a relief that God doesn't exist.

In what way does Mayra's post answer the question? She completely ignores it while threatening the questioner with God's wrath. I'd say she's beyond help.
