But also, I'm with shooraijin on this. I mean, if you consider the characters saying the lines--they're prison inmates. Of course they think their lot in life is unfair, and they might think that God just randomly or carelessly gave it to them. More importantly, since this is anime, it's highly unlikely that they're actually talking about the Christian God. Though there are themes of Buddhism and Christianity in the show, this line is probably more referring to "fate" in general than God.
I'm not telling you to ignore it if it bothers you; I just think it's good to consider exactly why: why was it said, why does it bother you, why would someone feel this way, etc.
Also, if you are hung up on this, I am going to give you a little warning that you may not like Episode 23 much since SPOILER: Highlight text to read: it is about the main characters seeking a bounty on a cult leader.
