I volunteered for many years in the mental health community for a local crisis line. After doing that for a year or so my church recruited me to do the same thing for church members (with the addition of prayer of course).

During that time I created my own personal “Religious to Secular Terms” dictionary. I did that so that what I learned in each environment could be generalized. (Yes, I know that makes me a geek – that’s why I read codeproject).

Amazingly, most religious terms translate pretty well to the secular world.

In this particular case, telling someone who’s grieving (for a job loss or anything else) that “Its gods will” is equivalent to saying “Sh*t happens” in the secular world.

Both sayings have a grain of truth to them, but all this really does is minimize the experience that another is going through. This is truly heartless and callous.

The difference between the secular and religious world in the particular example, is someone saying “Sh*t happens” in the secular world knows they are being an a**hole while the religious person might actually believe they are providing comfort.

Either way it’s still heartless and callous.
