Notwithstanding the pain / horror of the experience, existence of a victim for me is a major philosophical problem.
My song Forgiver In The Rough lays bare my struggle with this.
My problem begins with my conviction that not a blade of grass moves without the sanction of God. The all powerful and benevolent God
- If this is true then the idea that the victim is purely a random recipient of adversity, with no cause beyond their being at the wrong place at the wrong time, is obviously unacceptable.
