Who are you to say He's OK with it. He not only spoke out against homosexuality He also spoke out against murder. So how is He OK with it?

Hawkins article should never have been written or published. It is a load of rubbish, totally lacking coherency and reason.

God is not fine with it, what you don't seem to understand is the concept of free agency, which is what God has put us here to learn, and to learn to control ourselves, with that agency. Another thing you seem not to understand is the importance of yourself compared to God. God created humans, therefor what he chooses to do is not up to you, it is up to God. You don't get to dictate morals to God, he dictates them to you.

If he is fine with it, why does he allow it to happen. That's right, so people have faith in a lazy god who will allow great suffering and murders of small children so idiots like you will still believe in him.

As a Christian, it can be difficult to reconcile all the evil that happens in the world with an all knowing, all powerful loving God who could stop it if He wants, but chooses not to do so. If our hearts break for the innocent children who were senselessly murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary, how can a God who loves us not feel the same way? If any of us had known what Adam Lanza was going to do, we would have done anything in our power to stop him, so why didn't God? All too often we tend to quote...
