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.

Location: Chicago, Illinois, United States

"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.

With principles like these.....

Last week during a news conference, the president said that he was protecting the country and using sound moral principles. HA! It is now known that Karl Rove is the one who leaked Valerie Plame's name to the newspapers with the president's blessing. Dick Cheney knew all about it, too. The president said last year he didn't know who did it. He lied to the American people. The president has spent his tenure lowering taxes for only the rich and cutting programs for the poor. He has pushed through policies without the opportunity to pay for them. He said, very ademantly that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq when he, and his cronies, knew this to be false. This lie was used to send thousands of YOUR NEIGHBORS to die in a wrongly justified war. Again, he lied to the American people. This one resulted in, so far, 2500 deaths for us and countless for this poor country. Our president has tried, unsuccessfully, to continue using torture. Against the Geneva Convention. He terrorizes his own people with threats of harm by others and propogates fear. And now, he is chastising newspapers for reporting news. A fellow republican wants to take legal action against the newspaper for reporting news.

Well, I don't know about you, but this all reaks of fascism and wickedness. Surely not upstanding moral values. Funny that religious folks still like him. Doesn't say much for them.

Keep protecting your Constitution folks. G.W. is working on it's dismantling. One right at a time.

Strange Bedfellows

Republicans and the Religious Right.


How did these two become so entrenced with one another? It seems so odd. They really are at opposite sides of the spectrum. The Republicans have always been notorious for greed and money. They love money. And what does the Bible, upon which so many of the religious base their hateful morality, say about money? "For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil" 1 Timothy 6:10 NIV. The Republicans, who are in control of so much of our government right now, were in cahoots with the energy folks and, voila, your energy costs have soared. And this is kept in the dark, away from you, who are paying these soaring energy costs. Rebublicans are in close relations with big businesses rebuilding things in Iraq. The Republicans are cutting taxes for the most wealthy amoung us and YOU, the middle class, are stuck with the bills. All of this and claiming a superior morality.

Let's see:

"For this you can be sure: no immoral, impure, or greedy person-such a man is an idolator-has any inheritance in the kindom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be partners with them" Ephesians 4:9. If you read the entire passage here, you will see it is speaking of living a good, pure life. But this bit really seems important when looking at the Republican party of late, and it's relationship with the Religious. According to it, the religious shouldn't even associate with them. But, alas, they are.

Now the religious are pissed. What did they expect from such a corrupt group? Now I'm not saying the Democrats are any less corrupt. Give them time and opportunity. But I guess this is what happens when religion and politics are so deeply intertwined. Religion has become just as immoral. They resort to underhandedness, deceit, and a complete disregard for love and compassion. And without love, they are nothing but a clanging gong.

Religion's Wickedness

The American Inquisition bagan a short time ago. It is now fervently marching onward. One result it hopes to acheive is SLAVERY.

In the next week our government will debate an Amendment to our National Constitution, a document drawn by our founders for the purpose of protecting and defending our personal freedoms and liberties. This most important historical document was written, thought out, and planned to ensure that each one of us be able to persue life, Liberty, and happiness without discrimination. It was meant because "All Men Are Created Equal."

Those amoung us who claim religion and profess to "Love God" now seek to enslave. It is by their own judgement that they are attempting to cause others to become lesser beings. Beings unworthy of the equality bestowed upon them by their creator and guaranteed them by our National Constitution. The president of These United (sic) States, who swore an oath to his God and to his Country to protect our National Constitution, is now seeking to destroy the fundamental qualities of our National Constitution. He has agreed to, and is actively persuing, adding hatred, bigotry, inequality, and SLAVERY into our National Constitution. He is of the opinion that there are those amoung us that are not "Created Equal" and are less worthy of "Live, Liberty, and the Persuit of Happiness." He is also of the opinion that there ate those amoung us that are less worthy of the equality guaranteed us by our National Constitution.

The ones who profess to "Love God" and claim religion have judged others to be worthy only of enslavement. And to be sure, when you strip a free peoples of Life, Liberty, and that persuit of Happiness, when you place a value on them that is less than you aught, you reduce them to SLAVES. They wish to ENSLAVE by chaining people to a religious morality that is not held by the oppressed but only the oppressor. This To-Be-Debated Amendment will effectively work not only to oppress and ENSLAVE but to also restrict the rights and freedoms of ALL religions that are currently enjoyed.

As has been quoted here before:

"What one will do FOR you, they will also do TO you."

In who's God do you trust? Your own, or the that of the religious Al Queda attacking YOUR NATIONAL CONSTITUTION?
