why does god let bad things happen?

he doesnt. shit happens. god doesnt exist. the new testament even says so (see below, matt. 5:45).


"Bad things can be turned to our good if we seek to do God’s will." (D&C 122:7)

can+if is not a promise, its still leaves room for doubt. can is not will. what use is this then? its the same as the scripture that says that it rains “on the just and on the unjust” (Matt. 5:45).

"By enduring our trials well, we become stronger and more understanding."

does the little girl who is gang raped by grown men become stronger and more understanding?

"Rather than ask, “Why me?” ask, “What can I learn from this?”"

is she not allowed to ask "why me?"? tell me, what the fuck should she *learn* from this?

"We can turn to the Savior in any trial because He knows exactly how we feel and can help us."

i'm sorry, i dont remember reading about how the "savior" was gang raped as a child?!

some might argue "well, he suffered everything everyone else suffered in the garden of gethsemene"

first of all, think how ridiculously impossible this is (if this doesnt scream *mythology* to you then you've got problems), plus did he have his ass ripped wide open and taste 8 different men's semen in his mouth in the garden of gethsemane? did he experience pain for days on end? no it was only for a short period according to the fairytale. so he DIDNT suffer everything everyone else did because *time* is also a part of suffering.

there is no god or jesus, no sin or atonement. shit happens.
* good things happen to "bad" people (it's not "to make god's punishment of them in the afterlife more just" or the equally ridiculous "to make the blessings of the righteous in the afterlife justified" [see luke 16:19-31])
* good things happen to "good" people (you're not "being blessed")
* bad things happen to "bad" people (they're not being punished)
* bad things happen to "good" people (you're not "being tested")
