Driving too fast on the highway, in the rain, is risky. When it comes to safety, well-treaded tires, firm brakes, and quick reflexes will help you a lot more than relying on God will.
That might be the conclusion reached by the bereaved relatives of a deceased 11-month-old girl; they can currently find no solace in religion. The infant, Reece Degen, was killed in a car crash on the wet Maine Turnpike a few days ago.
The child’s tearful great-grandmother, Sonia Gardner, told a TV reporter something we rarely if ever hear on the news, lest it offends the pious.
“They always say God never gives you more than you can handle. Well that’s not true in this case, because we’ve had enough of His tests. We’ve had enough of His tests. He took a sweet innocent baby for no reason at all.”
She also issued a plea to everyone to “cherish your babies.” We should; God won’t.
