You might have forgotten, but Marco Rubio is running for the presidency. He was asked recently at a rally, “Why does God allow terrible things to happen?”
"Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio thinks the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and the recent massacre in Paris were part of God’s plan.
Speaking at a campaign rally last Monday in Iowa, the Florida senator said Christians should never be afraid because God was in control of the universe, the Christian Post reported.
“We are biblically ordered not to be afraid,” Rubio said. “You know why? Because God is telling us that no matter what happens, ‘It is part of my plan. I will give you the strength to endure it whether you like it or not.'”
Rubio noted that he had previously been asked why God would allow terrorist attacks to happen.”
