Massacre in Newtown, Connecticut

At a time when atheists demand to know where God was during the tragedy in Connecticut we should note that if atheism is true there will never, ever be justice for the victims and their families. If atheism is true the parents will never, ever see their children again. There is no hope. There is no real comfort. There is only unfathomable despair. 

Christianity teaches that the perpetrator will not escape justice, and holds out hope that through Christ the parents could see their children again at a time when “our present sufferings are not worth comparing” with the glory God has for us; a time when “the former things will not be remembered” and God will wipe away all tears (Romans 8:18; Isaiah 65:17; 25:8; Revelation 7:17; 21:4). That doesn’t make either faith system true or false—it just puts things in perspective. Atheists would agree that we need to face the implications of our beliefs honestly.

This is confusing. I already made a comment. Do I have to make another comment and type all those extra keystrokes? Good gosh, I'll be completely worn out after making more comments! After this, will I have to make yet another comment!? All right, I'll make another comment at the risk of irreparable cramping in both hands. Can I repeat my original comment? It was very short. Oh never mind. I think I'll skip the comment section.

OH MY GOSH!! IT WANTS ANOTHER COMMENT!!!! I'm ALL OUT of comments. I guess I could tell you about the weather. No, too mundane. Ok how about this: There were some Orcas nearby in the Sea of Cortez the other day! Hey, how's that for a comment?!
I'm telling you in advance that if this software asks me for one more comment, I'm exiting!! (by the way, the words I'm supposed to type in for proof that I'm not a robot aren't real legible.
