If you thank god for your smiles why don’t you blame him for your tears?
If you thank god for your Hollywood success despite the fact that you suck so fucking bad, why don’t you blame him for every talented artist who starves while you collect garage-fulls of beamers and act like a yuppie dick all while claiming to praise a guy who explicitly said to give everything you own to the poor?
If you thank god for a touchdown or for healing your sore back, why don’t you blame him for the genocide in Darfur or the AIDS virus?
If you think god controls anything, why don’t you think he controls everything? And if you think he controls everything, why do anything?
If you make a joyful noise for a sunny day why don’t you make a joyful noise at the death of a soldier? It’s all god’s work, right?
If god is all good and god is all powerful than thank god for 9/11, right? Thank god for cancer? Thank god for Hurricane Katrina? Thank god for the Holocaust? God could have prevented any of these with the snap of his fingers, right? The fact that he didn’t must mean that these things are, in fact, for the greater good, so thank god for them, right?
Unless, of course, the belief in a god is little more than a defense mechanism used to comfort oneself and not face the fact that the world is not fair.
