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.

More Ann Coulter

Well, by this time we've all heard about Ann Coulter. For those of you who check in for my opinion, here goes.

This diatribe toward Mr. Edwards was given during a Republican Political event. She was applauded for her remarks. And what hateful remarks they were. These rantings of hers not only insulted Mr. Edwards AND gays, they also insulted any sane, thinking American. Why? Well, we really all want some of the same things, regardless of our political affiliation; fairness, equality, peace, prosperity. These are things that any party should fight for. The fact that Ms. Coulter would choose to use such charged epithets at a political function shows how truly despicable SHE is. The fact that she was cheered and applauded speaks volumns about the true spirit of the Republican Party. I don't see them rebuking her very loudly or vehemently. No, they cheered and applauded.

For a party that claimed the moral high road in the last two elections, for a party that openly courts the religious base in this country, this shows their true god. I don't see the God of the Bible here, do you? No, instead we see the god of power and hatred.

One more thing to contemplate. Falwell is still courting the Republican party, calling on Newt Gingrich, a self-professed womanizer. A womanizer in a political party that cheers on hatred and bigotry. And their god is who? I think I'll look elsewhere if I want good morals. The Republicans seem to have lost all of theirs.

And just as a side note for those wondering, I DON'T endorse Barack Obama. He has bigot issues all his own.
