You can argue anyone is a dick but really what is the point?

What is the point of this answer?

Conceptually, a loving parent is incompatible with the idea of sending a kid to school with a cold.

Your okay with imparting some suffering on your child, so why can't God be okay with imparting some suffering on his children? You just don't like the amount of suffering God allows...which isn't a good argument.
Where did you get the idea that I'm ok with imparting suffering on my child? I'm not. And I certainly don't have the omnipotence to take her suffering away like God supposedly does. You're comparing apples and oranges.

Why are you so eager to defend a being who supposedly creates, allows, and perpetuates this suffering?

Because no being except "God" (at least the Christian one and a few others) is defined as perfect and thus supposedly free from being a dick.

RE: Just a cold
I would suggest not trying to use anything that resembles reason with this guy.

He jumps in any and all threads, especially if someone is struggling, and vomits his god squad message all over...take advantage of the seemingly vulnerable seems to be sport for Blowme.

He can't do this in the support section, so like a vulture he circles trying to find a perceived moment of weakness.

He just spews nonsense.

Hope your daughter feels better real soon. Colds and allergies happen, so does all the other stuff we have to deal with as parents.

Treat her extra-special tonight...a favorite food, movie, and some snuggles.

It's gonna be fine.
Thanks Anjele. She'll definitely get the extra special treatment. It's my favorite thing to do anyway. Smile

Yup. He exposes all his weaknesses, but fails to perceive any of them. Even his name reveals a weakness.

Anjele, having no real points, I see you have regressed back to your school girl days of insults and ad hominems.

I was really hoping you would start behaving better.

Either you or you wife could have stayed home with the child. However you deemed it acceptable to send your sick child to school when you could have lessened the child's suffering and potentially prevented other children from suffering by being infected by your child. Now given the parameters of the situation you must have been okay with this...otherwise you would have taken a different action.

If you think it is acceptable for your child and potentially other children to take on increase in suffering...more than was necessary.....just so you can execute your plan....why can't God? Obviously you feel a little suffering isn't all that bad.

Well apparently Impulse gets a pass for not minimizing the suffering of others but God is a dick....right?
