Compassion the only meaningful response

Two more articles on the issue of God and the tsunami. Both conclude that human compassion is the only adequate response to the tragedy of the tsunami: Edward Spence in the Sydney Morning Herald who concludes that,
Ultimately, heartfelt tears shed in earnest and with compassion, with offerings of charity for those who have suffered, are more meaningful than any theological and philosophical treatise on the problem of evil. Especially at Christmas when, according to the gospels, love is the single core message."
