Friday has arrived at last! This has been a week full of hate and bigotry from the republiKKKan party, nothing new about that except that it has been forced down the nations throats by the media. At least today there is no more of the Nazi freakshow from Cleveland, and for that we can all be grateful.
The most disturbing thing about the republiKKKan Nazi party is how they tie religion to their political agenda of hate and intolerance. This is always a dangerous combination. Just ask the people of Turkey who are seeing their rights taken away by a rush of religious fervor masquerading as politics.
People who will throw away their freedom in order to please what they thing some imaginary being wants all need to be psychologically examined. They are dangerous because they are never satisfied with living their own lives according to whatever religious sect they belong to demands of them, they want to take the freedom of everyone else away to live as they choose. The religious aspect simply makes them more fervent about doing so.
Religion is a MINDFUCK, or a cancer, on the world. For all the talk we hear of freedom, there is always as much, if not more, talk about pleasing this god or that god. I find it interesting that for all the talk of "peace and love" that those who profess to be so damned holy are some of the most hateful, ignorant and intolerant people on the planet because their god tells them to be that way.
The whole "hate the sin but love the sinner" BULLSHIT would make Orwell proud.
If we are ever to move forward as a people, the human race, on this planet, it will be because we reject religion in all its forms. Morality isnt based on religion, religion usues morality and then tries to justify itself as the source of that morality. This is because religion is a human construct, and as such it is subject to close examination because it historically has been used to justify hatred and oppression.
