That question may not be the most insensitive but it's close. How do we respond to such an inane question?
That time I responded with, "That may be the kind of God you serve, but my God is a healer. He doesn't send grownups to hurt little kids."
The other person squirmed and kept trying to tell me that she didn't really mean it the way it sounded.
Really? I didn't say that, but I secretly gloated that she had become as uncomfortable as I had been.
I am not responsible for others' insensitivity;
I'm responsible to protect myself.
