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.

Corporate culture and who's to blame

Large corporations have CEO's, COO's, Presidents, and Vice Presidents. These people run the company. Part of that running of the company is injecting and managing a corporate culture. This culture is typically used to keep the company focused and on track. If a corporate culture gets too out of whack with, greed, let's say, it eventually comes to the fore and some one pays the piper. Usually some one at the top. One of the four listed above, maybe. They can go to prison like the Enron folks or Tyco folks. Or simply get voted out like the Disney folks. Leading a company wrong will cost you.

Our country is run by GW Bush. Our current corporate culture is one that insists EVERYONE be christian. Of some denomination. It has pervaded our entire infrastructure and given religious perverts the balls to try and force every one to abide by their standards. Look back on a previous post and see where that is getting our president according to his own standards. The rest of the country will blindly follow suit. All the while blaming those who don't adhere. They will destroy the first amendment and eventually others. Or at least they will try very hard.

So why is this country so apathetic? Why are we all standing around with our thumbs up our proverbial butts and not making a fuss? We have a couple of NY Times reporters fighting to protect sources while at the same time the entire media has given away its first amendment rights. Is it investigating what is going on and reporting it? No. GW has forbidden pictures, by our free press, to be taken and printed of dead soldiers arriving home. We are NOT outraged at this?

Current corporate culture won't let us. It's UNPATRIOTIC, they say. I say it's unpatriotic NOT to be outraged. The religious zealots in this country want to do away with the first amendment. They are succeeding enormously with our first round of defense, the press. And our corporate culture says hush, so we hush.

Will GW and the other fundamentalist republicans pay the piper? We can only hope in 2006. Will you still be apathetic then? I hope not. Are you wearing a "Fuck Your God" pin to show your disapproval over their god? You should be. Their god is, after all, the god of greed. For money, for power, and for personal glory. And that is NOT the god I know. Is it the one you know?
