Fuck Your God

"Hey, you have your religion in my politics" "Hey, you have your politics in my religion" Two tastes that could be great, just NOT together. Let's discuss how religious zealots are ruining the spirit of the United States and trampling your rights for the sake of their own god.

"Chuck" currently resides in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. While he finds organized religion and their fanatics to be morally bankrupt and power hungry he also believes in the Constitution and our Bill of Rights which allow all of us to believe in any god we choose and the ability to worship in any manner our selves feel to be correct and good and right. So long as we respect others' rights to do so as well. The latter concept being foreign to most religious folk.

Day Two??? Or three, and the beat goes on

Sorry I missed you all yesterday. I guess this really makes day three? Anyway, I have been thinking of what to write about as there is so much going on. I would like to thank one great reader who sent me a New York Time article about that goofball of a paster who kicked out parishoners who voted for Kerry in the election. He now "claims" he wasn't preaching politics, but talking against abortion. Now not for nothing, but I was raised conservative Baptist. The man was politiking. Most definately. There is always a lot of "promotion" of the desired candidate handed down from the pulpit. I will say, though, this guy was the most pointed in his promotion. And now the word is out that the IRS is investigating sixty not-for-profits that may be breaking the laws of Separation of Church and State, "a third of them being churches".

Let's fight a little fire with fire here. Give the religious a little of their own. The bible states....let's see here
Romans 13:01-07 states in full (NIV) " Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has isntituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. For he is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefor, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing. Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor."

Now, it seems to me that the religious right got what they wanted with GW. And they still think it's ok to rebel against God. According to their bible, that's exactly what they are doing. Rebelling against their God. It's nice to know they are going to get the judgement they seek. Although, I venture a guess they won't like the target of that judgement.

One thing that also weighs on my mind. The churches are going after a secular world with their obsurdities. They can't control a measly congregation of 100 people without causing a stir and breaking the law, what makes them think they can run a country of heathens?

Last note to note: Thanks to my lone commenter. The first of what I hope to be many. I really do appreciate the support. A "Fuck Your God" pin has gone out to you. You're so hip.
