Having been born into the CHRISTIAN faith as a member of the Church of England which is the branch of Christianity that was created by HENRY THE EIGHTH so he could deny the Pope’s ban on divorce and get rid of one Queen and marry Anne Boleyn…makes a grown man at least a religious skeptic.
My branch of RELIGION was started so an egomaniacal “wife executing” monarch could do the nasty with a great looking chick who could give him a son and heir.
I was a choir boy and a theology student and tried as hard as I could to accept the Bible’s words as the ultimate truth. I really did.
When the local vicar told me I had to “fear God”…and I said I didn’t want to do that and that’s not what I thought JESUS would want me to do but rather to love my God ..I was looked at like some radical heretic. I was relegated to the back row of the choir and denied a cookie after services.
It was then I started to question a book that, in my mind, began to resemble a weapon of mass destruction.
JESUS’s dad was wreaking such havoc on the poor old World that it began to dawn on me that this was not the book of God …but the book of a bunch of old guys with beards who were pissed off because there was no air conditioning and they hated women, gays, straight sex, most animals, and each other. It was a book full of sex, sadism, wars , cruelties and divisive messages meant to indoctrinate and control the populations.
The books about JESUS in New Testament still made some sense as He seemed ,and still does seem, to be a really great guy, a wonderful peaceful gentle man whose philosophies have lasted but have been totally abused by his so-called followers ever since.
And so I come to today’s Christian Faith as seen through the hearts and minds of the people who profess to be followers of JESUS here in the United States.
The Christian faith as seen, used and acted upon by the extreme right-wing evangelists who make up the majority of the TEA PARTY and a great deal of the sitting REPUBLICAN CONGRESS is the most hypocritical and downright subversive force in the country!
That this bunch of religious thugs can get away with their angry hateful bullshit aimed at the heart of a free and diverse American system tax free makes me want to blow chunks!!!
Right Wing Christians blaspheme the name of JESUS on a minute by minute basis.
THEY ARE USED AND EXPLOITED BY THE CORPO-FASCIST WHO ARE ABOUT AS RELIGIOUS AS A BED POST…THEY FIND QUOTES IN THE BIBLE FOR ANYTHING THEY WANT TO DESTROY.. AND OTHER FOR THEIR EXCUSES WHEN DISCOVERED BEING THE ASSH*LES THEY REALLY ARE!!
Just a small selection of my point. The C Street elitist GOP Christian fakes who say they were put on this earth by God to run things …an example of these perverts was the wonderful Christian behavior of one of their revered members.
Remember adulterer John Ensign and his defender senator GOD FEARING Tom Coburn? Where was the holy hell is the outrageous indignation from that great other fake Christian Franklin Graham and the rest of the evangelicals??? Where was the condemnation..?
THESE RIGHTIST frauds LIKE TORTURE AND ENDLESS WAR ..of course that started with the Crusades..another nice bunch of holy elitists!
Palin, Hannity, Huckabee and the rest of the exceptional-ism con artists use Christianity like it’s an endless ATM machine.
The whole right Christian thing in this country is a most dangerous and destructive force which while professing purity of spirit and family values has the values and purity of pure evil.
It is the “DEVIL IN THE RED DRESS… RED DRESS.. RED DRESS …DEVIL WITH THE RED DRESS ON”…
***DISCLAIMER*** God is great..but if I know Him,he’s not a fan of Newt… Fox News or the branch of his faith that the dirty old man Joseph Smith made up!
