Why can’t God tell his nutty people to do useful stuff? Like clean up litter, or help the homeless?
Oh Yeah, that really irritates me when people say that. God called me to the Ministry... Or whatever. That really means: After thinking about it, I decided that I wanted to do it. By saying 'I was called' is an attempt to give themselves credentials they don't really have.
This is why I cannot believe in a loving Judeo-Christian god! This, right here! No god worth our worship would allow the millions of atrocities committed in its' name. And yes, throw Allah in there too! None are worthy to be praised!
Better and more constructive to believe that god does not exist, and that the god concept always has been and always will be a manifestation of individual fears and collective madness. Man creates god in his own physical and psychological image, hence the pathetic litany of excuses and justifications.
Sorry for the rant...
...Or feed the fish by marching two-by-two, headlong into ocean? C'mon, people! Heaven awaits! If the Rapture (brought to you by a 19th century minister) won't come to you, by gosh, take yourselves to the Rapture! I'm looking forward to claiming some of these abandoned cars and homes! Mush, god-botherers! Mush!
Clearly god has no value for life... have babies willy nilly everyone!
I have always wondered the same... that couple could have been doing something useful... those poor kids will need years of therapy and socialization. I hope they can find some semblance of normal.
