God is kind, loving; has nothing to do with natural calamities

I WOULD like to thank Rina Jimenez-David for her Dec. 7 column titled “Not God’s will.”

That was a beautiful comment on Bishop Broderick Pabillo’s misguided opinion on God. His allusion that tragedies happen whenever lawmakers push for the RH bill is ungodly. I am glad that David’s God and mine is a kind and loving God, not vengeful as the bishop’s God, as it would seem from his statement.

I prefer to think that man’s violations of the laws of nature like deforestation, the clogging of waterways with garbage and the like have very much to do with climate change which, in turn, has very much to do with catastrophes.

Indeed it is not God’s will to make His children suffer and go through difficulties.
