Straight, tough talk about God and cancer

cancer

“I always wanted God to give me a special job to do in alignment with The Big Overarching Plan for my life and all that. But geez. I most certainly did not want a job in human resources trying to make people believe in a God who gives people actual cancer to teach them a special lesson or make them into a better person.

That God is an asshole, IMHO.”

As an aside, it’s stories like this that make things like process theology (see also) and open theism appealing to me.
