Religion justifies everything with the umbrella statement, "God works in mysterious ways".

Most memorial services drone on and on about how the dead person is better off, because God has called that person "home". 

Really?

I can see it now...like playing with tonka trucks, god collides the drunk into the family sedan

No, I can't see it...now or never

And for that, I am intensely grateful.

If a drunken Christian killed another Christian would there be any point in asking his god for forgiveness? I mean all he has done (from the xtian pov) is to send him to Heaven earlier. Could it all be part of the big plan their god has for them? Did the killer Christian use his freewill to get pissed? If he killed an Atheist it should be a greater sin in his eyes because he never gave the Atheist time to convert (again from his pov). Sometimes even their god has a wicked sense of humour.

I have a great blog post that helps explain this, but here's a synopsis: Christians are so scared of their god that they give him credit for everything - life, death, near-death, near-life, everything.  Here's my post: http://citizen-atheist.blogspot.com/2012/01/answer-to-everything.html
