supposed to believe in a religion whose leaders are corrupt? A religion
followers frequently demonstrate their displeasure with a persons flaws by
killing that person? A religion that says a person is evil or "ungodly"

skin color, sexuality, or whatever other perceived offense?>>

Well hold on now. The issue was whether we could reconcile the idea of God
with the presence of evil and not end up with the conclusion that we should
not try to overcome evil ourselves. It simply has nothing to do with the
particulars of any specific religion.
