"Elmo doesn't understand, Kermit! Elmo did everything GOD wanted!
Why did GOD take Elmo's baby away? Why did GOD take Elmo's wife away?! Did Elmo do something wrong?! Why does GOD hate Elmo?!"
Kermit held Elmo in his arms as the furry red monster sobbed. He wanted to tell Elmo that everything would be alright. He wanted to tell Elmo that GOD has a plan for all of us, and that his family waited
for him in heaven.
But the words dried up in Kermit's mouth before he even spoke them.
It wasn't because he did not care. It was because he no longer knew.
For the first time in Kermit's life he did not - could not - believe that
a just GOD would take such innocents away. Surely such a GOD was not worth worshipping.
And so Kermit held Elmo in his arms, and silently wished Hell upon the God he once revered.
