If your god allowed this, and every other murder and terrorist attack - and the Ft.Lauderdale shooting - what is the point of praying about it?? Doesn't he know what he's doing and so you give him 'guidance' in your prayers: 'have mercy on...' etc If the latter, does it imply it wass a PUNISHMENT???
For all you say he's a god of love, protecting people, he sure has a funny way of showing it. If he were a politician making promises, he'd be voted out next election!
