Thank God that the Ebola missionary has recovered!

Cancer without God

Cancer without God

I am very pleased that the missionary who received experimental treatment for Ebola has recovered. However in his TV interview, he chose to thank God first without thanking the medical staff who had undertaken the pioneering science that led to his recovery. It seems highly probable that, like so many others who do not have access to the experimental treatments, left in God’s hands he would have died. This gesture strikes me as an insult to all those dedicated medical professionals who undertook his care.

Why should God take the credit for fixing something he had clearly neither the desire nor the ability to fix? Or does he just fix American missionaries preferring to ignore the ordinary people living in those countries stricken with the disease?

Oh Come on!

    I thought exactly the same!
    God creates ebola
    God creates missionaries
    Missionaries go to tell the poor buggers who have ebola all about God
    Missionaries catch ebola
    Missionaries rescued by modern medicine ( which incidentally could have been better used rescuing one of the poor buggers
    aforementioned had missionaries stayed at home)
    Thank god for that!
