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.

Whatever happened to "Integrity"?

Webster's defines integrity as honesty, sincerity, etc. There was a day, not too long ago, when a person's integrity meant something. It was important to be honest with other people. Not so much anymore. Much to our shame as human beings. Our government is currently without integrity. Whether Republican or Democrat, they all lack that very important trait. We citizens don't fair much better. We rush down party lines to defend a wrong. Happily. Never once admitting that our "leaders" are letting us down. Where is the honesty in that? Gone.

Do we really care about the condition of our country? Is the ability to say "My party is better than yours" really what our political system is all about? I thought it was about freedom, and truth, and justice. I thought it was about a dream. A dream had by Martin Luther King, Jr. and all the thousands of immigrants crowding Ellis Island before him. I thought it was about protecting the weak and those seeking refuge. A nation "under God", any god, must be a nation of integrity. A nation built on honesty and basic human values. Until our nation is based on a foundation of integrity again, it will be weakened and vulnerable. And those who act without integrity are truly the treasonous. Our president and other government officials included.
