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.

So, Politics doesn't effect you?

We've all heard it said by those who are too busy with life to pay attention to politics that, "Well, it really doesn't effect me anyway." I still hear this from people and it amazes me.

We have currently lost over 2,000 soldiers in Iraq. Countless others are pulling double and triple duty. Others who had enlisted as National Guardsmen/women are being called up for duty. Inactive duty soldiers are suddenly active. How many thousands has this happened to and how many more before these people are affected by Politics? In all reality, they're just blind and not paying attention. Politics effect you.

In California, politicians would like to outlaw incandescent light bulbs. This won't effect you, you say. They would also like to outlaw spanking children under the age of two. This won't effect you, either. There are myriad laws out there. Not one of these effects you, I suppose. You live in a politics-free environment. Bulley for you. But when that rug is pulled, you will be clueless as to how to stop it. And I can hear you asking now, "How could this happen? Why did no one stop this from happening?" Well, it's because you were too self absorbed.

Remember that when your son or daughter is called up, or killed, or effected by legislation and politics. I guess all I'm asking is that you wake the hell up.
