I read a talmudic source recently suggesting an 'exemption' for 'blasphemous' statements uttered in situations of extreme distress - the source for which was Talmudic, and this was articulated in the context of an experience of the Shoah - does anyone know this Talmud source that articulates this view?
The Talmud, in discussing Iyov (Bava Basra 16b), quotes Rava:
אין אדם נתפס בשעת צערו
A person is not liable (lit. trapped) [for what he says] during a moment of pain.
