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.

Death to christianity!

The wicked ones of religion have a saying they like to spout regularly. "Hate the sin, love the sinner." Balderdash. christians don't love the sinner. Well, to put it more accurately, christians don't love non-christians. Especially homosexuals. If these hate-mongers had their way all the fags would be killed.

You see, I was raised conservative baptist. Time and time again I was told that all gay people should be lined up and shot. Or, that they should all be shipped to one island in the middle of the ocean and bombed until they are all dead. Yes. I heard this all the time. Was I alone in this? No, unfortunately not. I still hear similar stories from those who escaped the disgusting grips of religion. Those who cling to the fantasy of their christian tenets are wicked, evil, hateful, and just plain mean. They talk incessantly of a battle between them and the secular world as if those who don't proscribe to their belief system are amassing weapons to destroy them. The world should be so lucky.

And their hatred knows no boundaries. They have been bitching and moaning for months about this new hate crimes bill. Yeah, you know, the one that says you can't physically harm homosexuals and transgendered folks. You can speak badly of them, you can disparage them, you can openly discriminate against them in 31 states, but you can't do to them what these horrific christians have been speaking of for eons. Now it's the law of the land and they are pissed off. They have just been itching to feed the fags to the lions and now they are told "no". Da Horra! But they're not done with their claims of "the world hates us" and everyone is out to get them; No, they are now claiming they have proof. This website tells the whole sordid story. A blogger writes idly and innocently about the build up of angst by the gay community and the church goes wild.

"When people are talking about violence to pro-family proponents, you have to take it seriously," said one in response to the blog.

Of course they take it seriously, they know how serious they are when they speak of killing homos. On a side note, I find it funny that this person considers religion "pro-family". These are the folks that are denying a whole group of people the right to marry and build family. These are the same folks that would rather have innocent children in Arkansas and Florida die in foster care without ever knowing family than allow a gay person adopt and love them. These are the same folks that evict their own underage children by the dozens when they come out as gay. Yes, this is what pro-family does, they hate the sinner AND the sin. That is truly what Jesus would do.

Now, I've read the blog in question and this writer was speaking hypothetically. Just like the christians that want fags lined up and shot. Would christians really kill gays en mass? I'd venture a guess that, no, they wouldn't, as much as it would bring them ultimate joy. He was writing of remote possibility and romantic conjecture. Just like the christians do.

The same "pro-family" hater goes on to say that they are taking this seriously because the events at Fort Hood show us how this idle chatter might mean something. Considering the crime he cites was committed by a religious zealot, maybe we should be more concerned with christians killing homos and less concerned with homos killing christians. It is the christians who are seeing their own numbers dwindle and their way of life in jeopardy, so they have more cause for killing "the enemy" than any queer I've encountered.

More irony in all of this is that religion is an amazingly protected institution in this country. Yet they are also amazingly evil and wicked. Our government gives them so many special rights and protections. What do they do with all of this special treatment? They bully others and work relentlessly to oppress the rest of us. While our soldiers are fighting for democracy and freedom, the christians are fighting for hatred and oppression.

Douche bags.

Religious folks aren't very intelligent, are they?

The religious folks in the United States are all abuzz. Hate crime legislation was passed and signed by Mr. Obama. And the religious nut bags are all crying foul. They think that this new legislation won't allow them their First Amendment right to bigotry. This is only because, I think, they are stupid individuals. Of course this group gives complete credence to fairy tales, so what should we reasonably expect? They staunchly believe that there is this major war against them and so they attack before being attacked. They hate before any hatred heads their way. Preemptive strikes against the heathens.

The goons of religion don't get it. Speech is different from action. You don't like queers? Fine. You want to express your hatred of homosexuality? Great, have at it. You want to kill or maim or attack them? That's a whole different ball of wax. It is my personal conviction that religion should be outlawed from the public discourse and my First Amendment right allows me to express this. It does not, however, allow me to punch religious people in their faces. Sad, but true.

So hate away, religious person. Be free to be bigoted. Just make sure it stays oral. And if you don't, don't be surprised should the gays better the instruction you give and sock it right back at you.
