Re: [humanism-174] Insensitive in the extreme

When I was seven years old, a friend of mine was run over by a train, crawled two and a half blocks and bled out alone on his front porch.  My pastor at the time told me pretty much the same thing as the asshole in the article; god needed him or some such bullshit.  These people just are not wired right.
