When some horrendous atrocity happens, religiuos people will say it is "God's plan," or it is "God's will." In my view, this is an excuse to try and justify "God" allowing something bad to happen. What possible plan could "God" have for allowing 21 first graders to be slaughtered in Newtown? Or a church full of litle girls to be murdered in Lancaster? A fire in Brooklyn this weekend took the lives of SEVEN children as they slept in their upstairs bedroom...what kind of "blueprint" could "God" have for that? Is it also "God's will" that there are entire COUNTRIES where there is nothing but disease, starvation, and death? Didn't "He" create all this? Why hasn't "HE" responded to the cries of diseased, starving, abused, molested, abandoned children? Why does "God" allow children to be molested by clergy in "His" own house of worship, and why does "He" allow the higher ups ( Cardinals, Bishops, etc) to ignore what is happening, or to bury the incidents, and protect the violators by passing them on to other parrishes to abuse another child? Anything that happens that is good, "God" will recieve all the credit...but why is "He" suddenly not responsible for the bad? If "God" can truly work miracles, and can do anything, than at the very LEAST he should be able to protect the children!! Reality
