Brian and Sam discuss Thor: Love & Thunder along with the hefty theological question of where is God in the face of suffering? While Love and Thunder is distinctly a comedy, it still touches on the deep topics of theodicy, suffering and meaning – though it’s less than perfect. We discuss the distinctions between the film and Jason Aaron’s source comic run, how we answer questions about suffering, and how we struggle with faith when those answers aren’t forthcoming or acceptable. Plus, we sing a little They Might Be Giants.
