an odd reaction to tragedy

Sue Lani Madsen, a reader-blogger on, learned of the tragic and brutal killings of four local police officers as she arrived at church for Sunday services, when she reached down to turn off her phone and saw an email. And what, you might wonder, was the first thing this lovely Christian blogger thought?

It’s horrible news. I pictured the atheists who commented on my last blog ready to jump on this, delighted to ask how a loving God can allow such evil. They’d be asking the wrong question.

Yes of course. I immediately think of how I’m going to argue with people who disagree with me about religion when I hear four police officers have been murdered their killer is on the loose somewhere in the greater metropolitan area. Absolutely my first reaction. Yep.
