->''"God? Love? Don't make me laugh. Back when I was just a brat, crawling around that shithole city, it seemed like God and love were always sold out when I went looking. Before I knew better, I clung to God and prayed to Him every single night. Yeah, I believed in God right up until that night the cops beat the hell out of me for no reason at all. All they saw when they looked at me was another little ghetto-rat with no power and no God."''

To counter this idea, the faithful may choose to believe that God works InMysteriousWays, so He may allow bad things for a higher purpose. One common argument is that evil results from [[SlidingScaleOfFreeWillVsDestiny God allowing people]] [[TheEvilsOfFreeWill to have their own free will]]. Alternately, perhaps GodIsFlawed.

** ''ComicBook/JustAPilgrim'': the titular pilgrim, an ex-Special Forces type who found the Lord in prison, survived the end of the world when the sun moved closer, drying up the oceans, and found the last remnants of humanity hiding in the Marianas Trench. Throughout the entire book his faith in God wouldn't be out of place in Warhammer40K, but he finally snaps when a mutant race of jellyfish takes over a little girl. His last act before his heroicSacrifice is to toss out the Bible he wanted the surivors to take.
