“Never more than you can handle…”

I’m breaking my embargo on religious criticism for this post, to feature a blog posting that’s one of the most poignant and pointed one I’ve read.
Debunking Christianity has had a lot of posts from its contributors lately on the age-old “question of evil” and the needless existence of suffering and what it means in the context of a supposedly omnipotent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent god.

This post is most striking and personally thought-provoking:

I want to post quotes from it, but it would do the submission little justice. It’s brief; I encourage anyone reading this to please go read that blog entry and consider.
