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.

Voting Season

Well, voting starts on Tuesday, March 21, 2006 and goes right through to November. I hope you know who you're voting for. AND WHY. And, I hope the reason is not because they are either a Republican or a Democrat. Voting strictly along party lines is disgusting. It's uninformed, irresponsible, and wrong. WRONG I SAY! You should vote for the candidate that is best of the worst. I mean really, do we have a good candidate for ANYTHING? Nope. And remember something I write in here regularly: What they will do FOR you, they'll do TO you. We need candidates that vote for the good of the country and the people, notcandidates who vote along party lines or in line with their own religion. That candidate's religion may not be yours, and for a good portion of the country, they are not. For a candidate to vote in line with the catholic church because he is catholic, or a protestant church because he is protestant is wrong. They do NOT represent their house of worship only. They represent the People of The United States of America. ALL OF THEM.

Please don't misunderstand me, voting with morals, values, compassion, love, understanding and good strong ethics is good. It's desirable, even. But when politicians vote based on their religious teaching, they cross the line of Separation of Church and State. This whole Roe V. Wade thing would be DONE if we could only put it in it's place, the doctors' offices where it belongs. If religious folk are anti abortion, don't have one. They should teach their children proper sex education, whatever they feel is right. They should bring up their children with the morals and values in which they believe. Their religion belongs in their own home and in their own church.

And you, the voter, if you are so short sighted and self centered to only consider what is good for you personally, and not what is good for this country, I would call you Un-American and Un-Patriotic. Just remember, if a politician will do it FOR you, they'll do it TO you. And you just might deserve it. So vote what's best for the country, best for ALL of society. Vote for what is upstanding, and right, and moral, and good. You could very well save someone else's civil rights along with your own.

Happy voting!

Fuck the Pope

Today is Ash Wednesday. A day all the good little catholics go to church and get ashes on their heads. They start the lenten season by giving up something. Anything. And the most popular things seem to be those that really don't matter or take the least effort. Ah, the sacrifice of Christ. What heart these people have.

Well, I say they should give up politics. For good. They keep putting their hands in it trying to legislate those of us who really have no use for them and they can't even properly legislate their own. They've gone so far as to tell politicians that they can't take the communion if they don't vote per catholic standards. They should first forbid it to ANY PRIEST OR OTHER CLERGY that is involved in either being the PEDOPHILE or the one who protects them. Like cardinal george here in Chicago. First of all, if the rumor mill is right and he's gay, out he goes. Secondly, he's admitted to shuffling the perverts around the church or doing less than nothing to protect kids. How can he be holier than thou if he allows known pedophiles near children, essentially bringing the sheep to slaughter. And all the good little catholics are supporting him. Nice. So the catholics and their "holy, apostolic church" is a den and producer of child molesters. And, again, they want to legislate the non catholics. Just what we need, legalized child molestation. Are they secretly in cahoots with NAMBLA?

Well I'll say it again. Fuck the pope.
