All I can say is, if there is a god or something that is supposed to be looking after us. They totally suck at their job! And if someone says that god only helps those who ask for it, or this is part of a plan, you may want to look in the mirror when you say that. If you can still say and think that, you may want to rethink your choices. Me, I'm going to go gather some food to donate to the food bank because clearly this praying shit is not working out!
How different history would have been had he clearly & unmistakenably forbidden war, tyranny, taking over other people's countries, slavery, explotation of workers, cruelty to children, wife-beating, stoning, treating women - or anyone - as chattel or inferior beings..
Atheism, Religion, God is Imaginary, Children, Child Abuse, Jesus, Satan. The fact is that far more crime and child abuse has been committed by zealots in the name of God, Jesus and Mohammed than has ever been committed in the name of Satan. Many people don't like that statement, but few can argue with it.
