The Divine Plan

Beware any “authority”, creed, or enterprise that sweeps inexplicable suffering under the rug called “God’s will”.

This seems to me, at best, a misguided expression of powerlessness and despair…

But I suspect it’s also a convenient way to rationalize indifference to a world rife with injustice and natural evil.

What rational and decent person can possibly accept that disease, disaster, and other forms of violence that plague us only seem reprehensible?

What rational and decent person can possibly accept that such suffering is part of some greater goodness beyond our limited intellectual and moral comprehension?

I, for one, in good conscience, cannot make such a perverse leap of “faith”.
