British Teenager killed in India? Blame it on God of course!

An Indian co-worker of mine informed the rest of us of a tragic event which transpired in her native land. A 15-year-old British girl was raped and murdered in the city of Goa.

The puzzling circumstances surrounding the tragedy are further explored in the following article,
“Why was Scarlett left by herself in the first place, police want to question her mother over negligence”.

My co-worker’s revelation was met with the sadness and bile that gorge up upon hearing of tragedies like these. One of our number astutely pointed out that there are “sick people everywhere” and not so astutely proclaimed that this is further proof that God does not exist.

Yes, he knows that God does not exist because if there was a God he would have stopped this injustice.

What I do know is that the irrationality that such inanities betray is as much an indicator of fallen humanity’s depravity as the things that were done to this girl.

Indeed, God is not deceived by externals.
