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.

Snake bite kits work.

They really do. Let's stick with the analogy and not discuss the other uses for these things, shall we? Snake bite kits contain little suction cups that are placed over the area of insertion and suck the venom out of the infected culprit. And it seems our judicial system is working in a similar fashion.

There was an article in Newsweek recently that shows a marked decline in the number of folks claiming religious affiliation. Today on MSNBC there is a story about religious groups losing lawsuits for discriminating against folks they simply don't like. The article quotes a religious leader claiming this as a lessening of religious freedom. Because nothing says religious freedom like the trampling of others and treating the "other" in society with less dignity than you would treat a house plant. That is exactly what Jesus would do, I suspect, treat people as though they were sewer sludge.

I read another article this week I found to be interesting also, though I don't have the link and I apologize. A Mexican family RE-converted to Judaism after centuries of familial catholocism. It seems the wonderfully loving and ever christ-like catholics of the Inquisition forced this family to convert to catholocism to save their immortal souls. How sweet is that? I can only imagine what Jesus-onian persuasion they used for this joyous occasion. I'm sure it was something soothing and with all the love they could muster. No pressure, really! And for this re-conversion the family had to jump through many, many, many hoops proving the past family's true religious affiliation and present commitment to the jewish faith. Another heart-warming story showing the true love religion offers the darkened hearts of the world.

But, thankfully, the practice of organized religion is waning. The vipers' poison is losing it's potency. We are on our way to true freedom and liberty. And eradicating this terrible, awful, no good scourge on society.

Have a fantastic easter weekend!
