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.

Lemmings and us

Not much of a difference in some behaviors, I'm finding.

I was talking with a co worker today about the sad state of people and society. Discussing how "Civilized" we seem, or don't. I had mentioned my button and the reaction to "Fuck Your God" and how so few people get it right off the bat. There once was a time in this country when people were aware of happenings. They understood tom swiftys or plays on words or whatever you want to call them. They would have understood the chosen wording of the slogan and understood a deeper meaning. But, unfortunately, we've only become very on edge and defensive about everything. We don't think anymore. We just simply follow the status quo. We have this NEED for others to explain everything. It's rather frustrating. And when no explanation comes, we become offended and defensive.

I wish we would think for ourselves a bit more.

The answers to the questions posted the other day are coming. And, no, the Bible quote I was thinking of wasn't the one about worrying about tomorrow. Good try, though.
