"If it's provable we can kill it."
Whatever you believe, you're wrong
Published on February 5, 2008 By EmperorofIceCream In Religion
I've come to loathe 'the religious'. Whether they be Christian,Muslim, Hindu, Zoroastrian, Pagan, or whatever.

In all honesty, and to paraphrase an honest man, "Whenever I hear the word 'religion' I reach for my pistol". I don't have a pistol. But if i did I'd kill everyone of you pathetic motherfuckers whenever I caught you. You preach endless hate. Your righteousness is nothing more than what you consider to be right, nothing more than what you consider God to have spoken to us all.

What convinces you that God would condescend to speak to a self-centered ego-maniac like you? Nothing but your own vanity. There is in your various faiths more to unite you than there is to divide you. Do any of you consider what is required of you before you consider what is required of anyone else. After all, you reeking hypocrites, you are the ones who claim to know what it is that God wants of us.

But no. You are far more willing to consider the mote in someone else's eye before you are willing to contemplate the beam that blinds your own understanding. Why? Because it's easier, because it's less costly, and because it's more comfortable. Far better to condemn someone else than judge yourself.

Better to be judge, than to be subject to judgment. Better to condemn, than to be subject to condemnation. I see nothing in any of you but the vanity of your own self-satisfaction. I see nothing in any of you but the desire to defend your own position against those that challenge you.

I tell you this truth: there is not one of you that will not burn in the hell of your own imagining, because there is not one of you that can imagine any better fate.

Your faith is Sin. Your hope is Vanity. Your charity is Pride.

Be damned to you all.

You know, I completely agree. From what I've seen, that appears to be the most common case. Always preaching, never practicing...just bitch, moan, and complain to get that sense of self satisfaction to raise yourself above everyone else who thinks differently, lives in a way outside of their own construction of what is righteous and "right" in this world. They live as though they are sinless, self proclaimed prophets and preachers and thus do injustice to the beliefs they so vehemently push onto the world...or rather the beliefs that they have concocted, which are no more than a sheer bastardization of the true core of the religion.

Which is why I loosely associate myself with religion...you get sucked too far in and you become blind, hateful, and a real pain in the ass to other people who just want to live their lives.

You are generalizing in the worst way.  Not all religious people are hypocrites, judgemental, or condemning.  You can have your opinion and I can disagree.

I can't speak for every self-styled Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Zoroastrian, Pagan, or whatever out there, but I know for myself I try to live my religion. I am not perfect, nor do I claim to be. My wife will be happy to detail my shortcomings for you any time. But as far as I know, I am doing my best to live a good, Christ-centered life. Love one another, don't lie or steal, show respect to your mama and your God.

Or what will happen? (Not that I condone any of those things from a personal point of view)

That's the real drive behind many religions and many of their adherents - fear of reprisal. Yeah, the adherents will claim all manner of love-based motivations about their gods, but notice how quick they are to talk about what happens to those who don't agree. If you don't behave a certain way, there will be severe repercussions. Hey God. If I don't measure up to you (which granted the hypothesis of a deity, I certainly could not) then how about show me, in an objective fashion, what exactly it is I missed. I'm reasonable.

Is that not what we as parents do? Do we say "Look little Jimmy, if you don't clean your room and recognize me as your one true biological father, I'm afraid I'm going to have to put you through a meat grinder a little at a time." No, we say kids are kids. We may give them a 15 minute time out. We might do all manner of "repercussive" things to teach little Jimmy that cleaning one's room is what we demand as bottom line acceptable behavior. If everything fails, and little Jimmy just turns out to be a real miscreant that won't behave, what do we say? We say, "Where did *I* go wrong?" Seen any gods lately that express that kind of ownership over their supposed creation? Nope...not one. There isn't a personally responsible god known to man.

So Jimmy. I've given you the facts about cleaning your room, now. Hopefully you'll understand that if you don't clean it, I'll have to make you suffer for all eternity. Nothing personal. Eternal suffering is a perfectly fair punishment for a child not understanding the importance of a clean room.

Holy crap, that's a good point. The Christian God ends up killing everyone after they screw up...I hope people don't do that to their kids.

(Using your example)

Well, Jimmy the time has come to punish you for your misdeeds. This room has been filthy for months now and we're taking a trip to the pool so I can drown you and start over. On top of the horrible death by drowning you will receive, you also get to burn in hell for all eternity. Get in the car, Jimmy.

You know, except the Christian God who became a man in order to save us.

This, from someone who thinks her own bigotry is an accurate description of the universe. Take your pathetic saviour out of your pocket and wave it at me. Perhaps I'll disappear in a puff of brimstone. Or perhaps not. Your wretched faith is founded on a collection of stories that date back thousands of years, that were created in relation to a world that's now as dead and gone as is the world of the cretaceous and mesozoic eras. And yet, on the basis of ignorance, prejudice, and the crassest form of wishful gullibility, you presume to tell the universe how it's to be ordered.

So I generalize from my experience of the bigotry of the religious. Sue me. You, on the other hand, turn your prejudice into a universal philosophy that entails the damnation of anyone not willing to think as you.

As I said - your faith is sinful in and of itself because it's nothing but idolatry.

That isn't ownership. What's that? You bought a car and a drunk driver ran you off the road and you smashed your car to bits? Ok, well I'll buy a car and smash mine to bits, too. Just to make things all better.

Ah yes. Poor, suffering Jesus, condescending to abandon his divinity and get down in the dirt with the worms and the vermin.

Why is it that Christianity, from its beginnings as a formalized theology in the writings of that pious hypocrite, sexual predator and pervert (otherwise known as St. Augustine of Hippo - who taught that sex alone makes us worthy of damnation and that women are 'the Devil's gateway') has emphasised nothing but the corruption and foulness of human nature?

What is it about you, Jythier, that makes you so foul in your own sight that you can't bear to look at yourself except through the distorting prism of your 'Jesus'? Most of the sexual paranoias and neuroses that afflict the average American are traceable to the simple fact that most Americans think they are Christians - and Christianity teaches them to loathe their physicality in all its forms.

Nope, sorry I'm one of those "weird" Christians who doesn't believe in hell. I go to the Unity Church. I believe other religous traditions have a path to the truth too. I certainly am not one of the "believe what I believe or you're going to burn in hell" types. That's the thing about Christians or religous, we come in many stripes and colors. As a matter of fact, many Christians may believe that I am not a "true" Christian. So be it. I believe what I believe and am fine with that.

Agreed Emp, Totally agreed.

There are still good people in all of these faiths .... unfortunately they are very few .... very very few.

more unfortunate, i dont think I am one of those few. I am trying .... so far i am not sure i am succeeding. But i know one thing: your statement above is true.

Then why are you here? I tell you to your face that I consider your liberal prevaricating bullshit as something contemptible, idolatrous and blasphemous, and you have the witless gall to continue in your pathetic fence-sitting and expect to be praised for your broad-mindedness?

If your god had any interest in you at all It would spit in your face before frying you in the hell of your own choice.

I don't know which characteristic of you blaspheming, idolatrous devil-worshippers disgusts me more. Your self-congratulation or your arrogance.

I'm having one of my angry moments. Don't take it personally. If I were to be forced to choose between Judaisim and Islam I honestly don't know where my choice would fall. Both are more inherently honest than the canting hypocrisy and whining cowardice that goes by the name of Christianity.

Hey EOIC,

A vast majority of 'Christians' are suffering with a form of identity theft. Some how this god of Israel rejected the whole old Testament and the people he called out to be a priestly nation for a bunch of lawless Gentiles? Some how this isn't replacement theology?

One other thing I have come to learn is the main difference from what I see in the Scriptures vs what I see in the 'Church.' In the Old Testament and in the New G-D calls the people out and the Spirit works on their heart. It is a bilateral relationship but the diety of G-D remains in HIS rightful place. Countless times I see G-D say, through you I will do great things (or variations) BUT as long as you keep my Torah.

The scenario changes in the 'Christian Church' (at least in increasinly numbers). Some how if I say enough Hail Marys, repetitive this or that, or pray hard enough, I get what I wanted. This is a form of god manipulation on top of the pre-described identity hijacking. Ultimately speaking this is telling god what to do which by default elevates you above? How then can this be an omnipotent god that is now manipulated by your pleadings?

So many do realize this and out of their morbid ignorance they do exactly what you said EOIC.

By hyjacking this identity they now somehow feel that they are elevated. The Greek influence has drastically influenced our 'Western' culture of arrogance and civil superiority complexes. This attitude is what they accuse the Pharisees (or more commonly used 'The Jews') of execution of the Messiah they so cherish.

This is my perspective.
