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.

Christians Love? What?

That just can't be correct. Christians don't love. Well, maybe they say they do, but look at their actions. These surely tell a very different story.

This weekend I was listening to NPR and they had a story about a town in Ohio that is fighting the war on Christmas head on. The town is encouraging it's residents and businesses to wish one another a "Merry Christmas" in defiance of the "Happy Holidays" trend. This begs the question "What about those other religious holidays that fall in the month of December?" Christians don't seem to care about those. After all, Christianity is really the only religion that matters, everyone else is going to Hell, anyway.

But this isn't the only issue on which they refuse any compromise or concession. What about abortion? Whether you agree with it or not, there are times when it may be necessary. Christians like Ms. Palin don't really care about that. And isn't this issue really something for medical professionals to work out? Yeah, yeah, I know, it's all about giving a voice to those without one, but these religious zealots have a strong tendency to miss the forest for the trees and seldom look beyond the procedure to the person beyond who is already outside the womb.

And then we have gay marriage. They say the Bible is against this and yet they totally overlook several other things the Bible is against but they have no problem pursuing; like clothing made of mixed fibers such as cotton/polyester blends. A big no no. And, shock, the Bible even talks of the evils of heterosexual marriage saying only to engage in this if you are too horny to remain outside the boundaries of matrimony. But marry they do. All the time. Many of them even more than once. Shock. And, wait, what does the almighty book say about divorce and remarriage? Against it! Except if your spouse cheats on you, that is. But how many marriages end in divorce for this reason? I'd suspect very few. But divorce rates hover around 50% these days.

It's amazing how much hate is in the hearts of Christians these days. And yet they talk and talk and talk. So when will society learn and relegate them to pariah like they should? I fear it's no time soon.
