I believe it was Christian Apologist Mary Jo Sharp or perhaps Ravi Zacharias who when the problem of evil comes up claim that it is the emotional problem of evil. Those emotional skeptics versus those dispassionate rational believers is another dishonest picture painted by desperate apologists who want to change the subject. The argument from Epicurus is strong logically and to pretend otherwise is more obfuscation in Christian apology. I am sure Mary Jo Sharp and Ravi Zacharias are so beyond mere mortals that emotional attachment has nothing to do with their lives and beliefs? Religion has had such power in human society precisely because of emotion! Religion takes advantage of the emotional family and community ties to influence individuals to join a particular faith group. The emotional connection to children, mates, and parents are often key to making one stay in their religious group. The emotional cultural moments of marriage, the birth of children, and the death of loved ones keeps many people attached to their religion on emotional needs alone. The pursuit of what is true is not even on the agenda when your life is so tied to the community of faith. Christian apologists are mere mortals who are susceptible to emotional attachment needs like any other human being. To pretend otherwise is intellectually dishonest and emotionally dishonest!
