God Exists. Presumably. Should we feel free to outwardly criticise God since we already do it inwardly?

What"s the difference God hears it anyways, but that doesn"t make you an expert on what I believe because you don't believe it, does it?

King David was ticked at God when God struck down one of the carriers of the Ark of the Covenant. It is well worth a read to find your answer. 2 Samuel 6:7... God does not respond, but proceeds to bless David and the Israelites regardless. So, is it alright to be upset? sure.
Job also has a hissy fit against God, and really let's God know it. Job 40:2 has God's response, as well as all of 40-41 if you really have time (and a thesaurus). Job 42:1-6 has Job tucking his tail between his legs, if that gives you any indicator of how the conversation went... Essentially, God's message to Job was "Quit your whining"

So, just from these two, we see that it is not punishable to be upset and to criticize inwardly, but if you get a chance to talk to God, I wouldn't recommend that approach.

Post-Script: If you do happen to talk to God in the near future, could you ask Him about the nature of time?
