No miracle in Arizona

I’m sorry, but the survival of Gabrielle Giffords after being shot in the head on Saturday is not a miracle. It certainly is amazing and remarkable, but it’s not a miracle, at least not in the sense that some divinity reached down and redirected the bullet. If you accept that god did prevent her from being killed that day, as many people of ‘faith’ would believe, then you must also accept that god was happy for the other victims to die. Is that how your god works? Well, I guess he does have a history of encouraging the killing of children, doesn’t he?
