One of the selling points for Christianity is that god protects his followers from the evils that allegedly plague the planet. He watches over them like a vigilant father ready to do battle to protect his children. There’s only one problem.
Christianity states that their god made all things thus God/Daddy created evil and all things that are considered “evil” such as the devil.
This point was recently brought home by The Littlest Atheist over on Freethunk.
The series focuses on a atheistic child and one of the latest issues has him bugging out about his closet being left open at night. Trying to calm him his mother (a theist of some sort) tells him God will protect him.
Bertrand shoots back “Doubtful. Isn’t God the one who created the monster in the closet?”
His mother just walks out the door, because well….God can’t be both a protector from evil and the creator of evil without some serious character flaws.
