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.

Happy Holiday

Today we revel in our Independence. Today we celebrate freedom. Today we embrace our country.

We have NAMBLA catholics in America. We have christians and jews. We have mormons and jehova's witnessess. We have agnostics and secular humanists. We have muslims and buddhists. We have every religion imaginable. While we may not agree with some or any we still rejoice in their being and the freedom they have to be who they are in our United States.

We, too, have Republicans and Democrats and Independents. We have the Cool Moose Party and the Green Party. We have parties many of us have never heard of with platforms built of outrageous and bigoted planks. And, also, in these we rejoice their being and the freedom they have to be who they are.

And we have blacks and whites. We see Indians and Asians and Canadians and Native Americans. We have communities of Irish and Italians and Russians and Cambodians. Neighborhoods comprised of Latinos/as and Spaniards and French and Ethiopians and South Africans both black and white.

In America are Elks and Kiwanis and Four H and Knights of Columbus and Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. We have non-profits and for-profits. Big Business and small business. We have cities and countries and rich and poor. In America we have everyone.

Today we will celebrate the differences and the diversity of our Country. We will light fireworks representing our deliverance to freedom. Today is our day of Independence, July 4th. And while there may still be some in our land that are not fully free we smile on our moving forth toward correcting injustice and our yearning that all breathe free.

Today we let the bells of freedom ring. Have a happy and safe holiday.
