Just a wee, small, tiny rant. And feel free to tell me to bugger off. As you know, that abducted toddler in BC was returned alive and well. It's a wonderful, wonderful thing and I'm thrilled for the parents.
But I see several friends' Facebook statuses saying things like, "GOD is good!" and "Praise God for His miracles!" and I can't help but get a bit irritated.
I know I'm not exactly impartial when it comes to religion, but it just irks me when people praise and thank their deity (any deity -- this isn't exclusive to Christianity) for something like this. There are abducted kids all over the world whose parents are just as frantic. Why isn't this good, wonderful, miraculous God saving THEM?
Why are the religious so quick to give their deity 100% credit for making good things happen, but when bad things happen, they don't give him/her/it 100% of the blame?
