being Manny Ramirez
Over the course of his stay in Boston the antics began to multiply: He loped to first base on ground balls; he peed mid-inning inside the Green Monster; his efforts to corral fly balls could be mistaken for performance art; he high-fived a fan after a leaping grab at the wall; he lost his $15,000 diamond earring sliding into third base; he refused to stand with a Little Leaguer for the national anthem during a public relations promotion.Manny was just being Manny. It wasn't his fault, per se, it's just who the guy is. YAHWEH is the same way. The Big Guy wants to kill his own son, or wipes out the planet in a catastrophic flood, or smites the first born of Egypt? It's just YAHWEH being YAHWEH. That explains everything!

Ultimately, God can not be questioned for his morally questionable acts, because It is what it is.
|This guy asked way too many questions.|
1. Question: Why would God do/allow such horrible things? Answer: God has Hell for people who ask such questions. - OK, this really isn't a reason why it's not God's fault. It's more like a general principle: Don't ask; don't tell. If you ask, you obviously don't have faith so it's down to the bad place with you to join all the other freethinkers. However, by not asking you are obviously enjoying God's grace, and how can that be bad?
