Theodicy sucker

I’m a sucker for theodicies. Again and again, when I see a link to some blog or article which purports to explain why God isn’t really a huge asshole, I bite.

They are insulting and awful. The amount of whining, victim bashing, and disregard for suffering is turned up to 11.

The authors succeed in making their gods and themselves out to be monsters. And maybe that’s why I like theodicies.
