Divine intervention saved the girl? I don't think people who say stuff like this realize just how offensive that is to say.
Yeah I see your point. I think you are right, they don't understand what they are really saying. I don't think they intended to say anything offensive. I don't think they ever considered how that could relate to others involved.
That's why I don't see it as offensive really. Because of the intent. Just how I see it personally.
