Your baby was Hitler so God killed him
This is from Fred over at Slacktivist:
This is Pat Robertson’s response to the question, “Why did God allow my baby to die?”And Fred's reaction is a good one, and spot on, and refreshing from a Christian.
“As far as God’s concerned, he knows the end from the beginning and He sees a little baby and that little baby could grow up to be Adolf Hitler, he could grow up to be Joseph Stalin, he could grow up to be some serial killer, or he could grow up to die of a hideous disease,” Robertson said. “God sees all of that, and for that life to be terminated while he’s a baby, he’s going to be with God forever in Heaven so it isn’t a bad thing.”Your dead baby was probably going to become Hitler or a serial killer, but now he’s in Heaven instead. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
My immediate reaction was: So why does God let some babies grow up be to Hitler or Stalin or serial killers or die of hideous diseases? Does God just plain hate some babies?
