daily dose of feels

Eliot was born with an undeveloped lung, a heart with a hole in it and DNA that placed faulty information into each and every cell of his body. However, that could not stop the living God from proclaiming Himself through this boy who never uttered a word.

It's a sad story, yes, but how in the hell does something like this get "gods glory" tagged onto it to make it inspiring.

The doctors who made the birth happen?
The parents who took care of the baby?
The genetic lottery that allowed the baby to live even with these conditions?

No no, god did it.

Yet when you look at the baby having the condition in the first place, it's "Oh, well, um, I guess it's just bad luck." No, just no. If you credit god for "showing himself" through a baby, you have to condemn him for ******* it up in the first place.

--------------------

That's it for my rant. If you've read this far, you deserve a back story.

A family member of mine died slowly and painfully of cancer. Not just any cancer, but a highly aggressive strain. It eventually spread, despite the doctors best efforts and it ended up in various places throughout his body.

Knowing he didn't have much time left, I ended up taking time off work and spending it in the hospital with him. At one point, the doctor who had been working with him the entire time came to talk to me when I was in the hall. Seeing how sad I was, he offered what he thought was consoling words. "It's all in gods plan."
That's what did it for me, I snapped. Normally I don't give a **** what people believe, but when a doctor says something like that, it's almost like they weren't trying.

I ended up yelling at him until he walked away and demanded a new doctor. I don't know whether a new one came or not because the next day my father died.

It's ******** to attribute only the good to "god" then leave the rest out as bad luck or random chance. It's all or nothing. I choose nothing.

TL; DR - Don't say "It's all in gods plan." to an atheist.

anyone who actually has a child, normal or not, fully understands this video. If you are one of the haters, trolls, or forceful atheists, then one day hopefully, you will learn better. I am an atheist as well, but religious tolerance goes a long way. If you're forcing that there is no god on someone who's only comfort it their belief that there is one, than you're worse than the Christians who force their religion down your throat.
Luckily my son is perfectly healthy and handsome, but i can fully feel for the parents. if anything were to happen to my boy I don't know what i would do. Pic related, it's my little man.

when he said how ill the boy was, I knew. That very instant I knew, he wasn't going to make it. I prepared myself for it, I steadied the feels, yet you couldn't hold them back... stay strong, stay happy.

how nice that they fought so that child could have several months of pain and agony because his parents were to stubborn to just let him go, this is exactly why eugenics should be legalized

My sister was born with an enlarged heart, faulty lungs and mentally challenged and the doctors said she wouldnt live past 5 years old. My sister is now 16 years old and healthier then ME. Before you open your mouth think about how it feels for the family to go through that. Sometimes to gain happiness you have to go through pain first.

And suddenly Funnyjunk has no problem with religion. Sad, but kind of hypocritical, if you ask me.

It's just that fact its a child who was taken before his time, Why would you need to fight over trivia things when there is worse stuff in the world.


BTW
What would you have an aheist say to parents of a passed child? Not everyone has to be an asshole

I didn't get any feels. It's a baby, who the **** cares. Not like it has feelings or can speak.

It can get mad, cry when sad, miss its parents, love its parents, and feel a good part of what adults can. Bye.
