No, really. It is sometimes. I was teaching my 4-year-old Sunday school class yesterday, and I had the following exchange with one of the kids:
4-year-old girl: Do you have a baby in your belly?
Me: Why, yes I do!
4-year-old girl: Why?
Me: Because God sent me and my husband a baby.
That is as much about the process as I am willing to explain to a 4-year-old child who is not mine. Being able to blame it on God gave me the perfect out. So yes, I freely admit that in this situation religion was a great cop-out to avoid having to actually explain anything.
