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.

You Go, Hugo!!!!

Bravo to Mr. Chavez. There is nothing better to hear than the rhetoric slapping G.W. in the face. And some of it just what Bush uses as his own rhetoric.

As we have all heard by now, Hugo Chavez called our president "The Devil" at the United Nations. I tend to agree with him. George has been the most evil man on the planet for the last several years. It is of my opinion that all those soldiers of ours and those soldiers AND civilians of Iraq who have been killed during this war is the fault of George. He deceived to get us there and hasn't stopped. He has condoned the lies, perpetrated the lies and condoned torture. He even went so far as to fight to continue to torture.

I still find it amazing that the religious right loves him. Jerry Falwell just recently praised the Republican regime and said he hopes they continue ruling the roost after G.W. leaves. Another evil bastard, that one is. "You will know they are Christians by the way they love one another" says their book. I'm hardpressed to find God-like love in either of these two.

Now this here is hear-say and I can't tell you where I heard this and if it is even true. But apparently a reporter told Chavez that you can't say things like that about the president of the U.S. or you could get killed. His response: "I have God on my side. I'm not afraid of him." I could only HOPE this were true. What a great line.

Hello Chuck and all,

RE:"I have God on my side. I'm not afraid of him." I could only HOPE this were true. What a great line.

The truth is sometimes stranger than fiction...

The time is long past to stop focusing on symptoms and myriad details and finally seek lasting solutions. Until we address the core causes of the millennia of struggle and suffering that have bedeviled humanity, these repeating cycles of evil will never end.

Why do religious leaders and followers so often participate in and support blatant evil?

History is replete with examples of religious leaders and followers advocating, supporting, and participating in blatant evil. Regardless of attempts to shift or deny blame, history clearly records the widespread crimes of Christianity. Whether we're talking about the abominations of the Inquisition, Crusades, the greed and genocide of colonizers, slavery in the Americas, or the Bush administration's recent deeds and results, Christianity has always spawned great evil. The deeds of many Muslims and the state of Israel are also prime examples.

The paradox of adherents who speak of peace and good deeds contrasted with leaders and willing cohorts knowingly using religion for evil keeps the cycle of violence spinning through time. Why does religion seem to represent good while always serving as a constant source of deception, conflict, and the chosen tool of great deceivers? The answer is simple. The combination of faith and religion is a strong delusion purposely designed to affect one's ability to reason clearly. Regardless of the current pope's duplicitous talk about reason, faith and religion are the opposite of truth, wisdom, and justice and completely incompatible with logic.

Religion, like politics and money, creates a spiritual, conceptual, and karmic endless loop. By their very nature, they always create opponents and losers which leads to a never ending cycle of losers striving to become winners again, ad infinitum. This purposeful logic trap always creates myriad sources of conflict and injustice, regardless of often-stated ideals, which are always diluted by ignorance and delusion. The only way to stop the cycle is to convert or kill off all opponents or to end the systems and concepts that drive it.

Think it through, would the Creator of all knowledge and wisdom insist that you remain ignorant by simply believing what you have been told by obviously duplicitous religious founders and leaders? Would a compassionate Creator want you to participate in a system that guarantees injustice and suffering to your fellow souls? Isn’t it far more likely that religion is a tool of greedy men seeking to profit from the ignorance of followers and the strife it constantly foments? When you mix religion with the equally destructive delusions of money and politics, injustice, chaos, and the profits they generate are guaranteed.
