One of the sickest things I've ever heard said by the religious

I had to write this post immediately, because I just saw a news report that blew me away.  It is one of the sickest and most twisted things I've ever heard from the religious side, that demonstrates just how disconnected these people's thought processes are from reality and rationality, and how broken their moral compass is.

We're all amazed by the news out of Cleveland, USA, in the last few days.  If you're living under a rock and haven't heard, 3 young girls were kidnapped 10 years ago and were never heard from again.....  until days ago.  The 3 girls, now young women, escaped from a neighbour's house, where they had been locked up and suffered years of abuse and rape.  There's at least one young child who was born into captivity in the house, as a result of rape, who had never known the world outside.

So when these women and child achieved their freedom, what does the religious family member say?  He said (paraphrased), "I thank (his) god for this.  (His) god is good!"  And a cheer erupted from the crowd of onlookers.

How mother-fucking twisted do you have to be to utter this, or to support it?  You're suggesting that a god, who had the power to stop this all from happening but didn't, deserves our praise for finally deciding to end it?  That a god that either caused it or sat idly by while it happened, then either had a change of heart or got bored enough to allow it to stop, is good and deserves cheers?  What the fuck is wrong with you people, honestly?!  How twisted and sick are you?!  Are you entirely broken mentally?!  Do you have no moral compass at all?!

Do you know what *I* would do if I was in the position you propose your god is in?  I'd have never let it happen in the first place!  I'd have struck this monster down as soon as he decided to do it!  There would have been no kidnapping, no captivity, no beatings and no rape!  You believe your god allowed 10 years of it, and then you praise it when the ordeal is over!  If the monster who did it had stopped after 10 years, would you have called him good?  What is the difference in morality between the person who did it and the entity you believe had the power to prevent it or stop it at any time and did not do so?

You people make me sick!  Fuck you all!
