Holy Crap!

Inquiring minds of precocious children want to know...

As a proud parent of two precocious children, my limited wisdom is constantly tested. It’s tested with questions about life, love, and yes, liberty, not necessarily in that order.

This past winter, while helping me shovel our sidewalks, my ten-year-old son point-blank said to me, “Kids are essentially slaves, aren’t we?”

After hearing the phrase, alternate facts, my eight-year-old daughter said, “Facts are facts. There are no alternates, only lies. Who are they trying to fool?”

Lastly, and most recently, my son said, “If there is a God, and God is almighty, and God created earth and everything on it in six days, and then rested on the seventh, why would he allow for any pain or evil? Why doesn’t God just kill the Devil? He has the power. Boom. End of story.”

Holy crap.

I’d never thought of it that way. Somebody has some explaining to do.
