How do we fix things?
There is a cancer in the world today and it is Fundamentalist Faith. Notice that I’m not saying it’s religion. I’m talking about the fundies who take things to the extreme and believe the ‘word of god’ LITERALLY. I’m talking about those who really believe that killing non-believers is a good thing. I’m talking about those who kill doctors in the name of their god. I’m talking about those who will not allow gays into their church. I’m talking about those who will not allow non believers into children’s groups, e.g. Boy Scouts of America. I’m talking about those who would take away the right to vote from women. I’m talking about those who would blow up a bus. I’m talking about adults who would spout abuse at children of atheists. I’m talking about people who would put children up on stage and allow them to evangelise. I’m talking about those who indoctrinate children. I’m talking about newsreaders and talk show hosts who make fun of atheists bus campaigns just because they work for Fox News. Hey, gotta make the boss happy don’t you.
They can’t sit there and make fun of a group of African Americans who are fighting for true equality, because that would be bad for business and against the law. Of course Atheists are not protected by law so the bullies hiding behind the cameras make immature and puerile jokes in a manner I haven’t seen since my preteen days in school. These people should be ashamed of themselves and the Fox Network should publicly denounce everything they said.
Whenever a Muslim Cleric has a rant about hating the west and xtians, the xtians get all upset. Poor diddums. Poor little you with your heart all broken. Well grow a pair the whole freaking lot of you. If you want to dish it out, expect to get it back. It’s about time xtian fundies grew up and gave the respect they demand so vehemently for themselves, to others. Maybe other cultures would not hate us so much if it wasn’t for the arrogance dished out by these arseholes.
Love they neighbour doesn’t seem to matter much to them. It looks like they figured out that the bible only means to love thy friend and fellow believer. Wow, that’s so loving and wise. Everytime you turn around these days you can hear them preaching love and kindness. Preach all you want, how about living it? Or is it only that you want everyone to love you, while at the same time you piss on the rest of humanity from the great height at which you place yourselves? It’s time this crap stopped. How can we possibly call countries like America, Australia and England etc, progressive, first world, civilised societies when the rest of the world sees this going on day after day, week after week, year after year? If you want those titles then you have to live up to them. Stop being such freaking hypocrites. It really shouldn’t be so hard. But it is. And you know why? Because governments in all these countries are pandering to the religious lobby groups. It has to stop before it rips us apart. Religious extremism has done it before and will do it again unless it is stopped.
How? Show them what they are doing that is not what they preach and tell them they have no power and will not be listened to till they fix the problems within their ranks. You do it to other groups. You do it to businesses. How many times have businesses been told that the government will not work with them till they toe the line. Religion should be no different.
My personal preference would be to make religion a personal thing only and not to allow it to intrude into other areas of society whatsoever. You want to believe? Pray? Preach? Fine, but do it in your home or your church. No more coming to my door annoying me. Keep your freaking signs inside instead of out near the road so you can insult passersby. No more evangelist television. Keep it personal. We don’t want to hear your shit any more than you wish to hear ours, but if you are going to keep it up, expect to hear a lot more from us. It won’t stop. We will keep coming. You will not be allowed to ruin our countries.
