"If you Reallllly Loved Me...."

One of the worst components of Western religion is
the whole 'kit-and-kaboodle' approach.

We already know free thought and the ability to question
ideas and the like are verboten, but the con they sell also
has one major selling point; it's all or nothing, baby.

If left to their own devices, most people would choose to
think about only three things in their deity;
1. A benevolent sky-daddy who loves them,
2. An attentive/interactive god who responds when spoken to,
3. A promise of an afterlife reunion with missed loved ones;
    a happy ending.

But if those three demands were met outright in the
shell game of spiritual selling points, then no one would choose
the Filthy Horribles like endless guilt and worry, fear of a mean
and vengeful deity, self-recrimination, unhealthy restrictions,
and so on.

If the insightful used car salesmen didn't hook you with
beautiful lies, there's be no filled seats for the evocative talks
of Hellfire and brimstone. If "Jesus loves me" were not a readily
touted phrase, no one would be open to the indoctrination of
what must be done to keep Jesus -construct loving them.

"If you want to see Granddaddy in Heaven, then you better stop
(fill-in-the-blank with whatever authoritarian figure is abusing the
young child in question with to meet their own personal needs or

It all gets lumped in, all or nothing, the big package; the bitter
pill wrapped in some peanut butter for a quick ingestion.
The side effects to be discovered later? Moot, once imbibed.

They don't want you to pick and choose, because the promoters
and architects know you won't choose the hard rules they devised. 
Hell, they invented the carrot to help brighten the lack-of-appeal of
their crafted stick.

It's a whole lot of 'Creamy Icing' lovingly set atop a steaming pile
of 'Shit Surprise.'

So, if you want to be one of Jesus' eternal minions, you better get
in line and boycott that JC Penny dyke rep....or "The Lord" will
be most displeased.

More Alike Than They Will Ever See


Just like humanity's endless grab for land and power,
the religious-minded seek to exert control over
others' minds, to the end that their concepts reign
supreme. It isn't benevolence, though many certainly
are convinced of their own sanctimonious 'good-
naturedness' and 'connection to ultimate truth and
ultimate knowledge!'

What bigger ego-trip than to belief yourself
smart enough (and blessed enough, and 'good'
enough, etc.) to be tapped in to the universal Answer!

Imagining that if people will simply follow your words
and your path, they can be just as enlightened and
safe and worthy and superior as you are!

It's not the differences in religions that are the focal point,
because ultimately they are all the same;
"I need someone to tell me what to do.
I need someone to tell me what to think.
I need to feel safe and loved in life.
I need to believe my actions mean something.
I need to find strength and purpose.
I need to feel connected to something larger.
I need a sense of community with like-minded people."

Now, in and of itself, none of those statements is
dangerous or particularly unhealthy. Life is
hard and complicated and scary at times.

But the problem is in their inherently insufferable
self-righteousness, convinced not only
that they know best and need to spread their
gospel to others, but that others are thereby
incorrect...and must be stopped!
(See where black-and-white absolutism leads?!)

Behind every smile and every act of 'charity' is an effort to
indoctrinate and turn your mind. Because these people--
every last member of every last type of church in every
last religion on the planet--cannot abide anyone who is different.

They won't stop until they condemn and control
all that is variance from their ultimate vision.
Because the bottom line of all their beliefs is;
"You're doing it wrong! Here, let me show you what's 'Right!"

Be afraid.

Penn and Teller - Boy Scouts

This is pretty self-explanatory; a thorough and firm vivisection of  the
'Christian'-based organization's many failings and frailties, from the brilliant
mind of a former insider. Worth checking out, if you aren't in-the-know.

Christianity is Catching On--Like the Plague

Testimony from a real female member:
"I found the man the Lord intended me to have!"

Ooh, girl....that's a shame!
That sound suspiciously like 'The Lord'
needed you to pay a fee to find some
quality dick! That sound like prostitution to me!

You been Jesus-pimped!

Besides, if I were you, I'd be
wary of a husband who already
knows to take pleasure getting on his knees
to please a father figure in dark places!

The REAL 'Pope Crazy-Head'

"I conjure forth the darkest demons in this
land or any other! Come forth!
Bow before me! Heed my bidding!

Oh, wait! They're already here!

I just have to release them out
of my hands!

sigh...It's hell getting old...
you forget just how many demons
are resting within."
