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.

Anti Semites Unite!

This has not been a good week for Jews. Is there no end to the persecution?

Earlier this week Barack Obama's former pastor, Jeremiah Wright, expressed disgust over "them Jews" not letting him speak with or see his former parishioner. Now, for those of you who are not familiar with conservative evangelicals, this manner of speech against Jews isn't an anomaly. Growing up conservative baptist I heard this all the time, though it was usually followed up by some sort of praise for the Jews because, after all, they are god's chosen people. And while they may have it all wrong for not believing in Jesus and are most definitely going to hell because of it, god did choose them first so we must not speak ill of them. Well, now Mr. Wright is offering an apology. Nice.

Let us remember another "famous" person extolling Jewish virtue from several years back. Mel Gibson had so many wonderful things to say about these folks that he was forced to issue an apology. Poor guy.

These two guys are very religious. They work very hard to impose their views and moral code on the masses. Both are openly anti-gay. I don't think it would be a stretch to assume they would love more legislation championing their respective religious gods. Yet they spew hatred of others. They say that it is easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission, and perhaps that is true. But what these two religious people should also consider is their own religious text that states, "from the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks." Matthew 12:34. Spoken by their Jesus.

How good can these people be? I'm guessing not much. By their own sword their hearts are wicked.

And this week the national Holocaust Museum was shot up by another anti Semite. Tragic. Once can only guess how emboldened to action he may have been by other's hate speech and rhetoric.

What one says matters. Pat Robertson and his hate might disagree, Jeremiah Wright might not, either, and Mel, well, what can I say about this strict catholic who's divorcing amid infidelity? With morals like these guys have, who needs religion?
