Indeed, the child rape argument is the anti-Calvinist's equivalent to Godwin's Law in debates. Sigh.

Trying to get God off the hook, as it were, by claiming God did not know what His creatures would do (open theism) or that God gives man libertarian free will only makes the situation more dire. Apparently God is either impotent (cannot see the future) or able, but unwilling to intervene (corridors of time foreknowledge argument) to prevent meaningless evil acts.

These tactics make good fodder for appealing to the hoi polloi, but they illustrate the shallowness of the anti-Calvinist's unstated assumptions. Remind these proponents that God, having a sufficiently moral purpose for evil, wills righteously what men do wickedly.

"...God, having a sufficiently moral purpose for evil, wills righteously what men do wickedly."

Now read that sentence again. And again. And again. Meanwhile, we will all move over and make room for you here in the atheists' camp.

Or in other words: "fuck you. I don't have to answer that, my name be damned". Earth has evaded asteroids by less than you evaded those points.

All Calvinists should be launched into the Sun! John Calvin is in INFERNO GETTING PINEAPPLES IN HIS BUTT TIL IT BLEEDS!

Meanwhile; Real Christians who embrace the True Deity of LOVE are partying with Jesus in Paradise!
