How can you say that? God will have her feelings hurt.

No, this was obviously a course correction maneuver. The real target is now doomed.

If God shoots and misses his target, then one should not question that fact since it is obviously the will of God.

However, if God shoots and hits his target, then one should not question that fact since it is obviously the will of God.

As usual, God is always on the winning side.
