God Doesn't Just Hate Amputees
If there is a god, in addition to hating amputees, he must hate little girls, since "god" let five little girls be killed execution-style by a child molester. Mark Scolforo writes for the AP:

Stoltzfus said the victims' families will be sustained by their faith.

“We think it was God's plan and we're going to have to pick up the pieces and keep going,” he said. “A funeral to us is a much more important thing than the day of birth because we believe in the hereafter. The children are better off than their survivors.”

I dunno about you, but if I have a choice, I'll take surviving over a bullet in the head at age 7.

Now, if anybody works hard at praying, it's the Amish. That, apparently, doesn't count for much. Not for much more than it does with the amputees, anyway. At the amputee link above, here's a bit on how praying will get you bupkis:

According to the Standard Model of God:

God is all-powerful. Therefore, God can do anything, and regenerating a leg is trivial.

God is perfect, and he created the Bible, which is his perfect book. In the Bible, Jesus makes very specific statements about the power of prayer. Since Jesus is God, and God and the Bible are perfect, those statements should be true and accurate.

God is all-knowing and all-loving. He certainly knows about the plight of the amputee, and he loves this amputee very much.

God is ready and willing to answer your prayers no matter how big or small. All that you have to do is believe. He says it in multiple places in the Bible. Surely, with millions of people in the prayer circle, at least one of them will believe and the prayer will be answered.

God has no reason to discriminate against amputees. If he is answering millions of other prayers like Jeanna's every day, God should be answering the prayers of amputees too.

Nonetheless, the amputated legs are not going to regenerate.

What are we seeing here? It is not that God sometimes answers the prayers of amputees, and sometimes does not. Instead, in this situation there is a very clear line. God never answers the prayers of amputees. It would appear, to an unbiased observer, that God is singling out amputees and purposefully ignoring them.

And now, tragically, they've got company.

According to the Bible, God not only hates amputees, but has prepared a list of all those who are not to come before him. Leviticus 21 spelsl it out: Speak unto Aaron, saying, Whosoever he be of thy seed in their generations that hath any blemish, let him not approach to offer the bread of his God. For whatsoever man he be that hath a blemish, he shall not approach: a blind man, or a lame, or he that hath a flat nose, or any thing superfluous. Or a man that is brokenfooted, or brokenhanded, or crookbackt, or a dwarf, or that hath a blemish in his eye, or be scurvy, or scabbed, or hath his stones broken.

Smile, god loves you!

When our son suffered severe brain damage due to medical complications at birth, there were a few people who said "God must think you are very special people to give you this child." Yeah, right, God's going to harm a child as a way to give the parents a brownie button. Of all the platitudes we heard in those early days, that was the only one that really pissed me off.

Apparently Mr. Roberts (the little girl killer) hates God right back! And here I was thinking that the Christian religion (the way Jesus was professed to have taught it) was all about love. Well, if they both hate each other, I would advise them to break up.
