I have to say I absolutely disagree with that viewpoint. God gives us free will , and it breaks His heart that we refuse to accept and act in His love. There is no way possible God would be "ordaining" the rape of small children, but yes, He has allowed certain events to happen.
These events are not "ordained" , but allowed because of the gift of free will. Many things have not been allowed because of the gift of graces granted through prayer, which is also by free will.
I'm sorry but, unless you take issue with Scripture, your position is indefensible. The bible says plain as day, that God knows everything that will happen before it happens. Unless God steps in to stop it, then it is necessarily defined as ordained (technically, it's "pre-ordained"). However, most Christians (perhaps not yourself) understand this and also understand that God can and does turn anything tragic and make something good come from it.
Humphreys: This is proof that orangetom and ora are not the same person. Unless I'm way off base, I believe orangetom will agree with me on this subject.
