William Lane Craig has now said that the school massacre in the Newtown school massacre, were actually part of 'God' reminding us about the original slaughter of children by Herod in the bible. Of course, when you look at the Herod story, the thing that really strikes you is just how pointless the whole thing was.

God sends a star to guide the wise men, but its not a very good guide, so they end up going to see Herod. Herod then is told about 'the King of the Jews' and tries to trick the wise men into finding Jesus for him. However ONLY then does god seem to pay any attention and sends a dream (SMS of the bible) to the wise men telling them not to see Herod again. After that Herod goes and kills all the children in Bethlehem. Now firstly if God had told the wise men in a dream in the first place to not go see Herod, no one would have died. Secondly, if 'God' was willing to send a dream for the wise men, why not for the parents of the children about to be killed? And this is Craigs justification for why the school shooting was actually a reminder of how God needed some more friends.

One can't but help think if Craig would have been quite so keen to describe this as a message from god if it had been his children who had been killed.
