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 think your kids are safer with catholics???

I mean, really, what sane parent would leave their child alone with a catholic? And I don't even presume to care if that catholic is a layperson or clergy, although clergy does seem far worse of the two choices. The Associated Press reports today that the catholic church has paid more than $2.6 billion dollars since 1950 for child molestation. The fact that this amounts to almost $55 million dollars every year is less striking than the fact that they have been paying out since 1950. The catholic church has been paying victims of child abuse for almost 50 years. 50 YEARS!!! Yet the pope will scold U.S. politicians that think abortion should be available to women who need it. This is a medical decision that should be between a woman and her doctor, not between a politician and the pope. This pope leads an organization that has been paying for sex for fifty years. And this sex is with children. Personally I think we should look elsewhere for our moral guidance. You would think the catholic church was the umbrella organization for NAMBLA. Yet NAMBLA has a worse reputation.

According to this Associated Press article there have been nearly 803 cases of molestation this year. This same organization also has the chutzpah to say that sex between ADULTS of the same sex is immoral. Really? But sex with innocent helpless children is OK? Coercing an underage child, who has put all of his faith and trust in and adult to keep him safe, into having sex is acceptable to the catholic church (or NAMBLA? for the sake of this blog. I mean, what really is the difference between the two?)? If the public school system in this country was paying $55 million each year because of child sexual abuse there would be a tearing down of school buildings. Yet the catholic church is considered holy, apostolic, and reverent. I think Jesus said "Let the little children come unto me" and not "Let the little children cum onto me." But I've forgotten a lot of the Bible I once new so I could be mistaken here.

I can't recall if it was Friday, but did you happen to hear "The Story" on NPR with Dick Gordon, about the religion reporter for the LA Times who left god because of everything he saw going on in the church? Just made me think you had heard the same story and were prompted to rant about it.
