Hundreds of thousands died in the Haiti earthquake of Jan 2010. Many more are still suffering. So where was God?

Can we believe in an all loving, all powerful God in the face of such suffering and destruction?

Roger Forster of The Ichthus Christian Fellowship argues that God suffers with those affected. Atheist Gordon Livesey believes that if God existed he would act to intervene. Nick Peters, who himself suffers from disability, argues that the existence of evil does not preclude a loving, almighty God.
