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.

Not all christians are un-christ-like jackasses.

While it would be quite true to say that many of the religious horde are wicked and contradictory to the holy books they espouse, some of them are actually civilized. I know it's shocking but every now and then I come across one that might actually be like-able. And it's refreshing.

The other day I took part in an on-line dialogue with just such a person. A man that engaged in conversation with several non-christian folks and showed amazing respect for the other side of the story. Happily, I can report that those with whom he disagreed also showed respect for this man's opinions. It was an amazing back-and-forth and one that I thoroughly enjoyed.

It's good when people of differing opinions and set of religious beliefs can come together and not get all hot-headed but, instead, work toward mutual understanding while still remaining true to our beliefs and opinions. David C. is to be commended for his respect of others. He is one of the all-too-few that give religion a good name. Maybe one of the folks Lot saw that were worthy of saving from the fire and brimstone?

If you're not already reading Fannie's Room each weekday you really should start. And continue religiously.
