The real problem of evil

The problem of evil is not that God is love, but that people are so selfish and depraved, willing to abuse others in awful ways to satisfy their base appetites and get what material gain they want.

I wonder sometimes if people who blame God for the evil in this world are trying to avoid taking responsibility for the darkness they allow to remain in their own hearts.
