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.

Are Republicans relatable any longer?

There's a lot of talk about the sinking ship that is the Republican Party. They're losing the voting base and, because of dwindling support, are grasping at straws to be something meaningful. The religious part of their support has turned into a pariah for most people. Is it the GW debacle that has turned people off to religion and the GOP? They shifted too far to the right and narrowed their views too much for main stream voters.

So they chose an African-American as their chairman. A desperate attempt to draw in more minorities without alienating the male-centric ego and giving the white affluent male a warm fuzzy feeling. Too bad this guy is just a dancing monkey. His performance so far has been less than stellar and borderline embarrassing. But check out his latest effort to demonize the homosexual community and rally the money-men; he says that if you allow same-sex marriages than companies that once didn't recognize them or allow same-sex benefits would now be forced to. This would increase expenditures and reduce the bottom line.

I find this fitting for the party of religious kooks to reduce marriage to a monetary drain on society and eliminate any love and commitment in the institution. Marriage is one gigantic financial burden on companies now. So that's what is so sacrosanct, that is what is so important to married couples. While we all knew this to be the reason for matrimony it's nice to see the GOP finally saying it aloud. It's not the religious ceremony that makes marriage sacred but, in stead, the bottom line.

Way to go!
