I can explain SW's "egregiously harm living beings to bring them into the fold" theobarbarity in two words:

Stockholm Syndrome.

Think about it:  Weird and nasty things are happening to you and your loved ones, and you feel trapped in a world that's out of control.  Your religious beliefs tell you that your god should be helping, but it isn't happening.  To avoid a total crash of faith (which in a crisis may be the sole positive in a sea of negatives), what can one do but proceed on the assumption that there's a reason for the pain and that your god is making you go through all this out of love?
