Am I the only one who sees “theidiocy” whenever I read or hear the term “theodicy”? Just curious.
Anyway, take a look at this lovely example of rationalizing the death of children.
The most merciful thing an omnicient God might do is end the life of a child whom he knows will never seek Him.
I’m going to have to remember that one. Since the death of seeming innocents is all for a cause visible to an omniscient deity, abortion must be God’s way of purging the population of little potential Hitlers, then. Makes a fellow wonder how he missed the original Hitler, though.
