"You loved your father but God loved him more".
This should be added to the list of things you don’t say to people who’ve lost a loved one.
I don't doubt that it's true but it's not very comforting. For one, I'm pretty sure I need my dad more than God does, what with him being God and all.
Two, my dad was in pain and suffered for a long time. You'd think God would have taken him from this world in a more peaceful way.
And three, to me this is the Christian equivalent of "suck it up" which I'd like to respond to by saying "fuck off".
