the worse part is that i'm sure every christian that watches admires her for keeping her wonderful faith despite all the opposition. ugh.

Crazy enough to try all over again for a second together baby! Hoping for a much less wild ride this time!

Sooo true ^.
I don't get the rationale behind that thought process.

me either....that is one reason i stopped believing was the death of a really close family member....at the time my grandma died i was already on the tip of not believing but that just threw me over the edge....she was our only living grandmother that loved me and my sisters...my other one just is a horrible witch....and after she died i just thought how could this all "powerful" god take away a childs grandmother....and then let their other grandmother be a wicked witch! it was a total deal breaker for me and from then i just started questioning everything

So, if god took that child (you could say sacrificed him) for a lesson for this family, that sounds an awful lot like the story of jesus. Sacrificed his only son...yada yada yada.

I understand, I really do. Some people NEED a reason. They need an explanation.
Me, I am ok with "Stuff Happens" and sometimes, that stuff is bad.

It's the hypocrisy, and I believe fear?

They are in denial. They don't want to know that stuff DOES happen...for NO reason.
So, they say it's a miracle and crap.
