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.

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.
