Quote from School Shooting Article

The last line of this article,

http://gma.yahoo.com/priests-horrible-job-telling-parents-childrens-deaths-165442686–abc-news-topstories.html

a reverend says that this “was not God’s plan.” So, whenever a baby is saved from a burning building we can see the majestic work of God’s glorious power, but he just wasn’t around for this massacre?  And how does this guy know God’s plan?

God gets a pass when bad things happen.  Even worse, he sometimes gets a stronger following.

I would never want anyone to tell me how to grieve while they are suffering and that is not my goal here.  I am just trying to point out the fact that religious thinking is no more than a coping mechanism, and this is a great illustration of that point.
