For the life of me, I can't understand the irrationality of god believers, and that includes the President of the United States.
In the face of the tragic event in Newtown, Connecticut, the same old stupid, inane words come out of the mouths of adults. You know: "god was watching over my child", or "the dead children are in a better place", or "god has a plan", or "thank god my children weren't hurt", etc. I want to scream.
Don't these people get it? Their god is loving and caring, but capricious. Say what? Religion has always been the great comforter. Look on the bright side, they say. There is no bright side. Children and adults were slaughtered. No god of theirs prevented the carnage. But, they are told to be comforted by the love of god. Told by the President.
Now, I like Mr. Obama. He's a good guy and good president. His presence at Newtown was necessary. I just wish he wouldn't be so damn religious.
I have been fairly successful in tuning out all the news surrounding the horrific event. It not only saddens me greatly, but hearing about the "heroes" and the "god protected us" interviews just simply irritates me. There's nothing I can do about it, so I choose to ignore all the gore and detail. That's just me.
