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.

And So It Goes...

"People will occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of the time they will pick themselves up and continue on." -- Winston Churchill

We are on the verge of a new year. 2006 is just around the corner, about three days away. It's time we started our list of resolutions, you know, the promises we make to ourselves and break a week later. I think I'm going to make one this year and try like the dickens to hold to it. I'm going to grasp on to hope. It is a concept that eluded a lot of people this year. Those in the path of Katrina and Rita, so many in Africa, in Iraq. And how many others spread around the world. A friend of mine told me once that, it's not that so many are poor or ill or under nourished that causes them such grief. It's not their lack of education. It is, instead, that lack of hope. For without hope they have no purpose. They have no reason. We see this so evidently in our own cities and towns. Impoverished youth with no hope to achieve any thing more than what they have and so turn to lives of crime. What have they to lose? People in third world countries dying of AIDS with no hope of medication and so sit and wait to die. How many young people take their lives every year because they have no hope? Far too many. This coming year, I will hold on to Hope.

Happy New Year, and a Hopeful 2006
