A well-known left-wing activist experienced a medical emergency that left him near death, leading him to have an out-of-body experience.
During this time -- when the vast majority of people who have such experiences either find themselves watching the efforts to save their lives, reconnecting with passed loved ones, or even enjoying the rare opportunity to converse with an angel or one of the Saints -- the activist had the rarest of all opportunities: he was allowed a chance to speak one-on-one with God himself.
God said to the political activist, "How would you like use this time to have a Q & A session?"
To which the man agreed, "Absolutely!"
Not wanting to beat-around-the-bush, the activist decided to put God on a figurative witness stand for cross examination to (as he thought) get Him to answer for all of mankind's woes.
"So, God, why have You made us all, the human race, to suffer like You have? You've given us AIDS. You've given us cancer. Why would You do this?"
God sat back for a second of reflection and to let the the man's sense of accomplishment wash over himself. He then answered calmly.
"I sent you the cure for those two afflictions, among others," God replied. "But, a supporter of yours chose to abort her and sent her back to me."
