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.

VA Tech and the Chicago Sun Times

The headline of the Chicago Sun Times yesterday cried out "Where were the warning signs?"

They were all over the place. And they have been for quite some time. Years, in fact. Many, many years.

We all hate disappointment and difficulty. No one likes to feel like they just aren't good enough. We've all heard the stories, or have been there, of the person who no one wants on their team. So society has watered it down. It is now not PC to let anyone be second. No one can be disappointed in an outcome. Everyone is good and best and straight A. One of the signs that I see pointing to this tragedy is the double wide stroller. Parents don't want one child feeling second best so they buy these side-by-each monstrosities that take up an entire city sidewalk width and don't allow anyone else to get by. All so that a newborn doesn't have to ride in the back.

Another sign: California legislators actually had to consider a bill to outlaw spanking your children. Some lawmaker actually wanted to BAN THIS. This woman can't be serious? How does she expect you to teach you child right from wrong? Or does she think there is no wrong? Well, thirty college students dead from a disappointed kid with a gun is wrong.

Schools grading students on what each one actually knows and not on a standardized putz test is a sign. We just don't do things that way anymore. There have even been instances when students don't consider cheating wrong.

We have a current president that says it is ok to kill thousands of it's own soldiers and countless thousands of innocent civilians for groundless cause, after all, the Iraq war has been found to be without cause. Well, except that Sadam Hussein "tried to kill my daddy."

We have a current president that thinks it's ok to torture folks it says are enemies and doesn't even charge them as such. He holds them prisoner against our own due process and against the Geneva Conventions. What message does that send to our children?

These are all signs of a civilization in moral chaos. For those of you who get "Fuck Your God," kudos, for those who are still offended by it, go back to school. Learn something. Then, maybe you'll see those signs, too.
