Christian Excuses for God: can't this guy speak for himself?

Anybody else want to just kill someone for saying the "can't-even-understand" bs?
I have a Christian friend who loves to say that --once it's come down to having no more excuses to throw out there, "We can't even begin to understand.....blah blah blah..." ..usually about my dead children...the nerve....I've only ever carried one full term and my friend's ridiculous religious remarks sparked my first debates EVER with a Christian who knows I am an Atheist. She's a complete bitch, who is a former best friend, and I just don't know how to drop her...I can't put up with her disrespect. The fact is I believe he doesn't exist, and she really thought she could use my last loss to push him on me. Silly thing is I never ask "why"... she did, with her one and only miscarriage, we lost at the same time and I'm her timekill for the pain, trying to give her god's answers to me, who didn't ask....

btw, I totally thought I had saved this as a draft...I wanted to use paragraphs, section off a couple topics like a real writer... lol... furthermore there are more examples of Christian excuses I wanted to go over, but since this is now up on even Twitter, lol... wow thank you TA, why don't you guys tell me about the most annoying or offensive excuses a Christian debater has ever thrown at you?

Saying my father blinked his acceptance of Jesus on his death bed. Yeah, that took the cake for me.

My mother swears that my uncle, who died in 2008 on narcotic level painkillers, desperately ill with pretty much full torso cancer...who was hallucinating and having whole conversations with the wall and people sitting in chairs in the room who weren't actually there, anyway, she swears he was speaking to Christ, actually preparing for his future work in heaven, already crossed over and consorting with the other side... I could puke at how she desecrates, in my mind, his last days with us.
Yes, I think most people do become religious suddenly when faced with death, there's the "just in case" factor, where ya don't wanna end up sticking to your guns to find a pissed off arm-folded Jesus waitin on the other side when you close your eyes the last time (laughable in my opinion). Then, there are ridiculous things like this claim about your father. Did it occur to anyone that blinking was going to eventually have to happen at such time that his eyeballs became dry? Furthermore that even if he did a last-minute you-win-Jesus deal, consider a mass murderer doing the same thing... does it matter for that guy? Many religious believe it does, (also laughable to me). Yet, a silly beyond silly notion remains within many denominations that the only final thing one needs to do is just to bow to this guy and then everything is washed away and heaven awaits.
Well, this is great news. I've had a strong urge to make a living doing b&e's, for the thrill you know. I covet the crap out of my neighbors stuff. My husband and I also think it would spruce up the sex life. This info is very helpful in my decision to live a fast life of crime, yay :) NOT

"There is no difference between the word of God, and the word of man; until the day men stop speaking for, and interpreting the word of your God and your God starts speaking for himself."

one of my favorite quotes ever. One of our own members said it, I don't remember who....If you know who said it, let me know so I can personally grant them my seal of approval. haha

I really pity the "God told me" or the "I feel God wants me to" types. Sad but harmless. However a Bible thumper on Deviantart told me there was nothing I could do to change her mind and that rationalizing with her was akin to "making fun of her religion". At the time I tried to get her to confront God's abhorrent acts in the Bible and high body count, but she just said that loving God was like loving a mass murderer in the family.

Um. . . what?!

It was me. I said it. Forget the fact that I've only been a member here two weeks. That's not important, or relevant. That the claim of duration of membership is taken completely out of context and was suitable to theculture and time period in which we were living... the present. *ahem* You're all welcome.

As for my favorite God moments, I haven't had too many yet since becoming an Atheist. I always get a kick out of the "God Hates Fags" people though. There's a really funny video of this gay, homeless, crazy "comedian" in Los Angeles I used to see at the Comedy Store all the time (when I was performing there) that confronts the Phelps' outside the Oscars. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9e2ssye3qM

That wasn't the gay, homeless, crazy comedian I was talking about, but I'm sure Georgie would feel honored you thought of him that way.
