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.

This man is an asshat.

With freedom comes responsibility. And if you can't properly handle that responsibility than you should be slapped. Yes, I know that is advocating violence but some people are just irresponsible assholes that need proper reprimanding. I could say they should not be allowed to write in a public forum or open their mouth if another if human being is within earshot but that would go against all that I hold dear, our First Amendment. I know you are all wondering, "What is he talking about?"

Here it is. You see, Mr. Dahlgren is passing on an e-mail he received and allowing his audience to believe it is truth. Mr. Dahlgren, you do no one, including your audience and your cause, a good service. You are, essentially, treating them with contempt in your assumption that they will believe something simply because you post it on your site. Mr. Dahlgren is a poor poster of "news" and should have given appropriate caveats to this column.

There are some very important fallacies contained in the e-mail he received and he has not only believed them himself but allowed his readers to believe them. The e-mail lists certain paraphilias as sexual orientations. This website goes into great detail as to why these are NOT orientations, and it can be taken as a good source because of the research the writer went through and the appropriate sources she cited for her determination. Mr. Dahlgren should have done even a minuscule amount of research and he would have been able to write a truthful, informative piece. In its stead he chose to purpetuate lies and hatred to further a cause.

It is truly sad when someone puts their own ideal above truth. We should all strive to remain curious for better education about topics we deem important. We should do due diligence before writing or "reporting" on something. I still receive e-mails that Bill Gates will send me money if I forward an e-mail to everyone in my list. Really? Really. And those who send it truly believe it and do no research before sending it along. Have any of these people received their checks? No, yet they continue to send it along EVERY time it pops into their inboxes. The same stupidity can be attributed to Mr. Dahlgren. Why?

Well, this Bill has been floating around for some time. And several of those folks who have written about this whole "pedophile" thing have been proven wrong and hate filled. It stands to reason that someone as "enlightened" as Mr. Dahlgren would have know about those corrections and simply deleted this bogus e-mail. Alas he did what right wing hate filled people do and decided to march on with incorrect rhetoric and spread the hate a little more. As the saying goes, "If you tell a lie enough times it becomes the truth." Way to go, sir. Let me guess, you told your wife and kids you love them, too, didn't you? And I would be willing to wager a buck you swear by your religious affiliation.
