Religious people say the weirdest things. For example, I heard one say that God helped her find her furniture for her new house. She found some good stuff on sale. God lets children be raped, but finds furniture for you? How can a thinking person believe in such a God?
Another thing, religious people explain children being raped, and other horrors, by saying that God gave man free will. Adults were given free will, not children. Have you noticed that children are under the control of adults? Kids don't have free will. So God gave adults free will, and the fact that many use that free will to abuse kids is okay with God? It must be. Free will for adults at the expense of children doesn't make sense to me. I find children as valuable as adults.
