From the tradition of which I am an active practitioner (Sant Mat), anger is shifted towards its being one of the five dacoits, or thieves. The dacoits steal our spirituality. The Creator of the Universe can certainly handle human anger. And anger, even anger (mis)directed towards God, might be where we are at any given moment, particularly after some human tragedy that seems to us unjustified, but it is an entirely human sentiment that is also (temporarily) damaging. Most of us--no, all of us--will recover in time. Anger is just a delay on the Road.
