God’s racket

Here we go again.  The hostage standoff in Alabama ended with the 5-year-old hostage safe… and people are calling it “prayers granted.”

Was God the one storming that bunker?  No, it was the police.  If things had gone horribly wrong, and the hostage had died, would the headlines read, “God denies prayers, kills little boy?”  No, they would read “Gunman kills five-year-old.”

It’s a great racket when you always get all of the credit and none of the blame.
