A Quiet Rant

I want to rant about something but I don't want to overshadow some good news.

You see, a young boy has cancer and has been going through the awful process of chemo. His mother recently posted that he is "all clear" and all the comments were happy and supportive, but there was one that pissed me off when I saw it.

It seems some church lady thought it necessary to mention they she and her friends had been praying and that "God is really good."

Give me a break, lady. If God is real then it was God who initiated the cancer in the first place. What makes God so good when the cancer goes into remission after blasting the kids body with all sorts of chemo?

OK. I'm done.

They always pull that crap. They give god the credit when something good happens, but they minimize things when it all goes wrong. (Or twist it horribly, as in something odd like 'the holocaust was the jews' karma' or 'the tsunami was gods way of punishing them for sin'...) It's all so convenient for them.
