Why do you (yes you you you) allow all this suffering in the world?

A quote from ‘The Irresistible Revolution’, by Shane Claiborne :

“I remember hearing about an old comic strip that had two guys talking to each other, and one of them says he has a question for God. He wants to ask why God allows all of this poverty and war and suffering to exist in the world. And his friend says, ‘Well, why don’t you ask Him?’ The fellow shakes his head and says he is scared. When his friend asks why, he mutters, ‘I’m scared God will ask me the same question.'”
