Quote# 7068

In a book i read, a young woman was raped as a girl. a person asks why god would let that happen to her, and a young man replies that while the rapist was meant for the girl's destruction, she was now able to counsel women who were also raped, and in turn save many people from self harm. you see? god works like that.

Good thing God let all those other women get raped too, then.

What a worthless deity. God, the omnipotent, the omniscient, the God who is deemed to be love itself, has a woman raped so that she can relate to all those raped women she counsels. Can't stop the rapists, but hey, God works like that.
I don't believe God exists, but if he did, why should anyone worship him? Revile, maybe, but worship?

Yes, and Hitler gassed 11 million people so the we could invoke Godwin's law upon ourselves and give you victory by default [allegedly].

So, why doesn't God just eliminate rape?

He could've just given her a scholarship to a good psychology program.

If the rape victim bought a gun and learned how to use it, and shot the rapist dead, and the rapist happened to have been her pastor, would you be saying "god works like that"?

That would also save many people from harm.

"Self harm"?

Today's morality lesson: It's okay for God to allow someone to assault, humiliate, and degrade you because the silver lining is that you're better prepared to help others. What a good God he is!

You need rape so that rape victims to help victims of rape? Circular thinking much?

If the rape victim bought a gun and learned how to use it, and shot the rapist dead, and the rapist happened to have been her pastor, would you be saying "god works like that"?

Could that be precisely what just happened in those two churches that just got shot up? Hypothetically?

Emm... the girl helped other rape victims on her own free will, not on orders from God. Your deity sucks.

That's sick he would do that to her to counsel her.

Why doesn´t God make her be a counsellor by her own volition?. A little convoluted, sorry.

Why didn't God make the rapist's dick fall off before he could do anything, rather?

In fact, why did the stupid bastard even create rapists?

Then this God you describe would appear to be quite sadistic.

You would think that an omnipotent and omnibenevolent god could come up with a better plan. I mean...I have a better plan for fucks sake...

And what about all the victims of sexual assault, women, children and yes men too, who do not get help and subsequently engage in self harm? Does your god say, "Screw 'em! My omnipotent self is already doing all I can for them?" Perhaps your god arrange for more rape victims to satisfy the increasing need for helping professionals.

... and this is why there are people out there who hate your God.

Because god couldn't just whisper in her ear that she should become a rape counsellor? That would have seemed like a much kinder method to an omnipotent and loving god - but then we know that your (thankfully fictitious) god is neither of those things.
