Questions About Herod's Slaughter Of The Innocents

Farrell Till asks some interesting questions concerning Herod's slaughter of the the male children 2 years old and under in Bethlehem. See the context of this alleged massacre in Matthew 2 (from the Errancy discussion list October, 1997):

[W]hat kind of omniscient, omnipotent, omnibenevolent deity would cause his son to be born in a place and circumstances that would cause children to be massacred, and why would such a deity take special efforts to see that his son, who is omni-everything himself and therefore eternal, was saved from the massacre but leave the other male children to be killed? Didn't any of their parents merit dreams in which an angel warned them to take children and flee?
