Hindsight

Remember my post Of God and Man ? After reading the following I feel a bit chastisied.
"There is something wrong when religious faiths can be shaken to the core by natural disasters but seem able to reconcile themselves with events such as the war on Iraq which are the result of human folly."

Murial Gray makes an excellent point. I had a good rant about it in my
political blog , so I don't feel like I have to rant here.

"It's A Mad Mad World of God's People on Earth, by Murial Gray:
"One newspaper correspondent pleaded, with unintentional black humor, that "God regularly answers our prayers, including recently saving our son's marriage when it went through a rocky patch, yet He ignores the pleas of thousands who scream for their loved ones lost to the waves. We are in turmoil".
Presumably the author of the letter has never previously considered that while their God was busy divinely intervening to stop their son breaking wind under the duvet without apologizing to his wife, He must also, by implication, have been deaf to the prayers from thousands all over the world, screaming mercy for loved ones blown up by bombs, dying of famine, run down by cars, killed by robbers, fires, disease or poverty. The turmoil the letter writer should be experiencing is how he arrived at being so terminally self-centered and unutterably stupid not to have noticed pain and suffering until it came to his attention in the form of a headline-grabbing tsunami."
