WHY SHOULD THE DEVIL HAVE ALL THE GOOD MUSIC?

Either God can do nothing to stop catastrophes like this, or he doesn’t care to, or he doesn’t exist. God is either impotent, evil, or imaginary. Take your pick, and choose wisely.

The only sense to make of tragedies like this is that terrible things can happen to perfectly innocent people. This understanding inspires compassion.

Religious faith, on the other hand, erodes compassion. Thoughts like, “this might be all part of God’s plan,” or “there are no accidents in life,” or “everyone on some level gets what he or she deserves” – these ideas are not only stupid, they are extraordinarily callous. They are nothing more than a childish refusal to connect with the suffering of other human beings. It is time to grow up and let our hearts break at moments like this.

My heart keeps getting broken, and patched up. When I het to heaven I think there will be loads of scar tissue all over it. I have no doubt at all that God loves us, nothing so far has happened that he did not warn us would happen. Keep strong and keep campaigning against abuse of vulnerable people xx
