  • Quotes

    • Charles: Why don't you come to Church with us on Sunday? It helps, believe me.
      Jonathan: Thank God for letting my wife die? That's what He did, ain't it? That's what He did for me. He let her die. And you want me to praise Him?
      Charles: Jonathan.
      Jonathan: No. If you want to believe, that's fine for you, but not for me.
      Charles: You believe, and you know it.
      Jonathan: I don't want to. I don't want to believe. It's easier if I don't. Cuz if there is a God, Charles, he let your grandson die, and he let my Alice die, and I don't want to be believing in a God who would do that.
      Charles: Why is God responsible? It's just something that happened.
      Jonathan: Because he could have stopped it. I read about all them miracles in the Bible. If he could perform them miracles, then why didn't he perform one the other night? Why didn't he stop it? Tell me, Charles. Why?
      Charles: I don't know. (long pause) If I did know, I'd be God.
