God on Trial

“Proceedings start as Mordechai frames the charge:
God is in breach of contract and has failed to fulfil his covenant.
Kuhn defends God, arguing that Auschwitz is a test of their faith.”

“God On Trial”
Sunday, November 9, 2008 9 – 10:30 pm

Suffering at the hands of the Nazis during World War II, Auschwitz concentration camp prisoners put God on trial, asking, “Has He broken the covenant to protect His chosen people?”

In this riveting 90-minute drama, members of a cell blockhouse hear evidence to determine whether God is to blame for terrible acts against humanity.

The stellar cast includes Sir Antony Sher (Primo), Dominic Cooper (“Sense and Sensibility”), Stellan Skarsgard (“Good Will Hunting”), Rupert Graves (“The Forsyte Saga”) and Stephen Dillane (“John Adams”).

For those who like thinking about this sort of thing, CS Lewis tackles the same theme in The Problem of Pain . . .I was enamoured of Lewis much as I was of Ayn Rand for a time, as a young know-it-all. 🙂

Now I tend to think more in terms of cognitive psychology and “collective consciousness” that maybe traditional religion caught a glimmer of, but wound up distorting for its own population control purposes . . .
