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.

What's the Score??

Our government, as founded and treasured and so gallantly fought for, is dying. It has been selfishly and greedily hijacked by individuals who call themselves “Compassionate Conservatives” and by corporations whose bottom lines will always be money and not people. Abraham Lincoln has been embraced by our two most prominent political parties recently. His legacy has been destroyed by one of them. George W. Bush and his GOP have, once again, spoken and acted in direct contradiction of one another.

“Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, upon this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that “all men are created equal”.”
Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburgh Address, 1863.

Today, the top 1% of our elite are enjoying tremendous tax breaks while the poorest amoung us suffer social inequity. How is this gross disparity equal?

Today, eleven states have adopted constitutional amendments discriminating against homosexuals because of religious belief. Many more are moving for similar legislation. How is this equal?

Today, mostly white christian groups are working to influence our government to impose christian beliefs into law. How is this equal?

“..that government of the people by the people for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
Abraham Lincoln, Gettysburgh Address, 1863.

Today, this government is slowly perishing from the earth. At the hands of “compassionate conservatism”.

“So, this is how democracy dies. With thunderous applause.” Star Wars, 2005
