Lets call him John.<br /> Several years ago, in the sweltering month of August, John and his wife got back from shopping. John believed that his wife had retrieved their newborn son from the car seat. His wife believed John had brought the child in and put him in the crib. Tired from their day, the parents took a 2-hour nap.<br /> In the back seat of the car, in 103 degree heat and sweltering interior temperatures, their baby literally cooked. For 120 minutes. It's unimaginable.<br /> They made the horrific discovery and rushed their son to the hospital. After hours in intensive care, the infant died. And the parents were brought up on charges for child neglect, which they overcame after a 2-year legal battle.<br /> God is omniscient and omnipotent. He saw this go down. And He did... absolutely... nothing.<br /> Yet even today, John continues to ask to pray for his patients after their doctor visits. He pays homage and gives reverence to the very God who failed to intervene on behalf of his helpless child. If you asked him why, I wonder if John would simply say that "God works in mysterious ways." Or..."God used this to strengthen my faith."<br /> Even after this pointless tragedy, John requires no proof. His God gives him comfort. His God is a loving God. His God must have had a reason for allowing his helpless baby to perish.<br /> Instead of questioning his belief system, John has found a way to be comforted by the very deity that ignored him.<br /> <br /> <br /> Website:<br /> <a href="http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/">http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/</a><br /> <br /> My Facebook Page:<br /> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/gphhawkins">https://www.facebook.com/gphhawkins</a><br /> <br /> Tweet with me:<br /> <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gphhawkins">http://www.twitter.com/gphhawkins</a> Instead, What Yahweh Says Is... tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2012-06-07:2182797:Video:1974962 2012-06-07T21:39:19.079Z George hawkins http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/gphhawkins <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/instead-what-yahweh-says-is"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/82ck9PDoV2wURY7K9erOHJN54XgTqwFbmaFEWTPbRH0Ofejq65axVIP9R4sOylvfMPb*Ug4lPKIcTVIeLjrc-9Q6i53umEPr/999234636.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>If God loves people it shouldn't require bowing down and kissing his feet.

He should be able to say "You made some bad choices in your life, you didn't believe in me or you believe in another higher power, but I still love you, you are still my child". But no, he doesn't do that. What the abrahamic God Yahweh does instead, he says "if you don't come here and kiss my feet im going to burn you for all eternity in a like of fire." That's not a loving God at all. That is a vindictive, sadistic, and cruel God. Even if Yahweh were real, which by all evidence shows he isn't, that is not a God I would worship. If it turns out that he does exist, and there is a hell, I will gladly take my punishment, knowing that I lived my life in a good decent manner without the need to praise a being for just existing when there is no proof for his existence, than to worship him blindly without real evidence to go to heaven, with my free will stripped from me. to praise him forever and ever.<br /> That's just me...<br /> <br /> Website:<br /> <a href="http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/">http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/</a><br /> <br /> My Facebook Page:<br /> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/gphhawkins">https://www.facebook.com/gphhawkins</a><br /> <br /> Tweet with me:<br /> <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gphhawkins">http://www.twitter.com/gphhawkins</a><br /> <br /> Blogtv:<br /> <a href="http://www.blogtv.com/people/gph_hawkins">http://www.blogtv.com/people/gph_hawkins</a> Words From Will tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2012-05-10:2182797:Video:1947576 2012-05-10T14:45:13.381Z George hawkins http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/gphhawkins <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/words-from-will"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/Rcu0UjNmmDU2HMWAq6nckKnDZbvS2LwaHenqEyt4ZCbRR28DzikRjISR4*VMJDm2poVmVeH23GAp1I-elM4Nf5YVuu3m8x9U/594730823.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>My friend Will wanted to say a few things, so I let him.

"'KONY 2012' is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice for the crimes he have committed for over 26, which include kidnapping children into his rebel group the "LRA", murder, turning the girls into sex slaves, and the boys into child soldiers, making them mutilate people, and he forces them to kill their own parents. For over 26 he has done this with over 30,000 children. For information on the campaign can be found on the video in the description box (and on the annotation)Now, there is some controversy going on with Invisible Children inc, its film "Kony 2012" and its campaign. Invisible Children has been condemned time and time again. As a registered not-for-profit. Last year, the organization spent $8,676,614. Only 32% went to direct services (link on this in the description box), with much of the rest going to staff salaries, travel and transport, and film production. The group is in favour of direct military intervention, and their money supports the Ugandan government's army and various other military forces. Here is a photo of the founders of Invisible Children posing with weapons and personnel of the Sudan People's Liberation Army. Still, the bulk of Invisible Children's spending is on awareness and filmmaking. Which can be great, except that Foreign Affairs has claimed that Invisible Children (among others) "manipulates facts for strategic purposes, exaggerating the scale of LRA crimes.For information on the controversy of the campaign, please look down at the description box below with the links to several articles opposing Invisible Children. Watch the film, read up on as much information as you can, from those supporting it, as well as those opposed to the campaign. Decide for yourself on what is right. But from what I have read, seen, etc. The main thing is to stop Kony, and the crimes he has committed.<br /> <br /> The Video:<br /> <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4MnpzG5Sqc">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4MnpzG5Sqc</a><br /> <br /> HOW TO HELP:<br /> Donate to Invisible Children: <a href="https://www.stayclassy.org/checkout/donation?eid=1471">https://www.stayclassy.org/checkout/donation?eid=1471</a><br /> Sign the Pledge: <a href="http://www.causes.com/causes/227-invisible-children">http://www.causes.com/causes/227-invisible-children</a><br /> <br /> On The Controversy:<br /> <a href="http://visiblechildren.tumblr.com/">http://visiblechildren.tumblr.com/</a><br /> <a href="http://facecrooks.com/Internet-Safety-Privacy/kony-2012-invisible-children-aw">http://facecrooks.com/Internet-Safety-Privacy/kony-2012-invisible-children-aw</a>...<br /> <br /> Invisible Childrens public Finaces:<br /> <a href="http://c2052482.r82.cf0.rackcdn.com/images/737/original/FY11-Audited%20Financ">http://c2052482.r82.cf0.rackcdn.com/images/737/original/FY11-Audited%20Financ</a>...<br /> <br /> Here is a photo of the founders of Invisible Children posing with weapons and personnel of the Sudan People's Liberation Army:<br /> <a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_-PnDZmngAhM/Sa_KBGNySiI/AAAAAAAAAJY/uBOfiAysghs/s16">http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_-PnDZmngAhM/Sa_KBGNySiI/AAAAAAAAAJY/uBOfiAysghs/s16</a>...<br /> <br /> Free Music from:<br /> <a href="http://www.Music4YourVids.co.uk">www.Music4YourVids.co.uk</a>
