I Don't Pray With The Dickheads

Every country has Wingnuts. They are people who believe in the superiority of their own beliefs, to the point where they seek to suppress the expression of belief by others that are not he same as theirs. Often the beliefs of the Wingnuts are enshrined in the local majority religion or whatever passes for religion among them.

Not content with suppressing unorthodox beliefs of those among them, Wingnuts also spend a good deal of time attacking the enshrined beliefs of the majorities in other areas of the World. They then insist that all inhabitants of their part of the World join them in hatred of foreigners and their beliefs, calling those who refuse unpatriotic or even traitorous. The Wingnuts in other parts of the World of course, are busy calling us names and singling out their own unpatriotic traitors.

I resist Wingnuttery on both counts. I do not believe in the ridiculous Christian mythology that passes for divine wisdom in my little corner of the World. I suppose that I might agree with the Christer degenerates, that their religion is less virulently violent and evil than some other religions and that might even be correct but why should I give even tacit approval to a bunch of made up crap like Christianity, just because it is, pragmatically, less evil, less violent, less misogynistic, less xenophobic than other belief systems in other places? That Christianity differs in the degree of it's evil doesn't mean that it isn't, at it's heart, one and the same with other competing belief systems.

All Wingnuts are Dickheads. All religions are the made up rationalizations that Dickheads use to perpetrate their evil on everyone else, wherever they are.

I'm always perfectly willing to let any Dickhead that wants to believe anything they please, as long as they don't try to force their Dickhead beliefs and lifestyle on me. The problem with that is though, that the whole point of Dickhead religion, whatever kind it is and wherever it's practiced, is to turn everybody, everywhere, into a Dickhead. As it is now and ever shall be. Amen. Amen.

You're not very diplomatic this morning.

It's the Sabbath. Just giving my little sermon on the beach.

Later I'm going to pass around a joint and a short dog of T-Bird and get the multitudes high or maybe I'll heal an afflicted surfer of his chronic sewage rash.

You and my pal Negocios Loucos share this contempt for the religious.

I find religious people to be pretty cool overall. I know some Mormons and fundamentalists who are among the nicest people I've ever met.

A very small percentage of religious people are pushy about their religion.

I don't even mind the door-to-door Mormons or Jehovah Witnesses. I just feel sorry for them. They don't bother me nearly as much as those kids selling crap door-to-door for modern day Fagins.

The majority of religious people are not in it to become robots for Christ. I like them, It doesn't matter if they are Jehovah's Witness or Rashneeshi. In fact, the more ridiculous their religion is, the better I often like them. I know some great Mormons and Hindus. Often, although observant and devoted, because they believe in the philosophy and because their social community is within the faith, they don't really believe in Gods. I've never even met a Hindu that believes in all of their Gods. I've met a few Jews that are deists but never on who believes in the God of the Book.
