Religious People Suck And The Nine Reasons Why

Religious People Suck

Perhaps… just perhaps, there aren’t nine reasons why Religious People Suck, maybe there’s only three, or four or six reasons why. I’ll just have to see how many reasons I get to as I get going as this is really complicated turf because it doesn’t stop with just religious people… That sucking thing extends to all segments of present day American Society that those same people are usually involved in…

Yeah… unfortunately that “SUCKING” thingy extends to a full third of American Society…

Yeah… that’s right33.333333333%.

A full third…

A full third of American Society sucks!

You Suck

But let me be clear here… perfectly clear…

100% clear…

I ain’t using “suck” in a sexual sense… I’m using the word as it probably is most often understood in today’s lexicon of language… Let me paraphrase from an articleI just read on the Internet:

“… the word “Suck”…”

“The word is now completely divorced from any past reference it may have made to a certain sex act.

When I tell you that a new movie… (whatever title) sucks… my mind in no way conjures up an image of a film reel somehow fellating an unnamed beneficiary.” …

“Suck(s) is the most concise, emphatic way we have to say something is no good.”

NO GOOD!

And yes… I’m saying that those people, the 33.333333333% above, are no good…

And they’re all fanatic…

And they all vote as a block… and because their block is so monolithic, rabid, and solid in its beliefs this 1/3rd block can cobble together the unsure, the uncommitted, and sometimes win; like they just did in 2016…

And Presidente El Trumpo, their anointed Savior, SUCKS~!!!

Suck Cartoon

It seems that God, Family Values, and the Culture Wars on social equality and progress go hand in hand. In lock step even:

Onetwo…three!

HUT…

And they all SUCK!

Religious people are often despicable liars… and these “sucky” Religious people: the individuals, the politicians, those hypocritical Bible thumping, God fearing law makers, the Corporations who attempt to sell product by religious or moral fiat, the Lobbyists that sponsor and push all the same “religious” baloney all of the time at the cost of truth, reality and true progress… And the worst of them all, those “God Fearing, God’s Truth Be Told to the WORLD” telegenic Preachers and Ministers, those, MEN OF THE CLOTH themselves…

They all SUCK!

And I’m not sure who’s worse… all of the individual players above cost Society so much…

So damn much…

Law Of America

Herewith I will begin my task and we’ll see how many of those nine reasons I can relate before we get bored by the sad reality of it all…

Yes…

I said: “bored by the sad reality of it all”.

The sad REALITY of it all…

1: Reality

Reality

Yup… Reality.

Religion ain’t real… religions rely on fantasy, and hearsay…

Religions rely on repeated stories and fables from long, long ago; fables and stories told, and retold about life and times“… Far, Far Away”… the “TRUTHS” behind all religions are some old fantasies from long ago and Far, Far Away places.

I know…

A Wookie as God…

R2D2 perhaps…

No?

OBI-WAN KENOBI then… may the force be with us… But only if we’re all in the same tribe, we all have to be in the same tribe, or it doesn’t count…

There is no God…

Again…

Reality

There is no God… just assertive, manipulative, aggressive human beings gathering docile and less assertive, fearful even, other human beings around them to do their bidding in the name of… GOD!

There is no God!

I dare any living (or dead) human being to show me GOD!

I dare them…

And these GOD “believers” can point to the HOLY Bible all they want… as they so often do… for proof.

But the Bible isn’t proof; as the Bible is not real… it’s fiction.

Yes

FICTION!

The Bible, the HOLY Book is fiction, and a very dated fiction, and a very obscure, and obtuse read to my taste today…

Dated and obscure fiction that Bible…

Dated and obscure…

HOW I WRITE ABOUT SEX…

Reality, what a concept…

2: Lack Of Tolerance

Every religion preaches ToleranceChristianity, Islam, Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism… and perhaps none deal in any tolerance except the last one.

Only the Buddhists are tolerant.

Only the Buddhists…

As to the others… ever hear of the Crusades?

And what about the Islamic Jihads of the middle ages… they made it all the way up and into Spain that time… And of course today the Shiites and the Sunni’s can’t so much as share half a continent together without massive rapes, slavery, slaughter and beheadings all in the name of God; ISIS anyone… Islam… a religion of peace, with a place for other religions in the Holy Book, but Islam as it is practiced today has no tolerance for other religions.

Just as Jews in Israel have no tolerance for Muslims.

Or Protestants for Catholics in certain parts of Ireland…

There is no religious tolerance…

Religious freedom… another story that. Within most of the large and small communities that make up so much of modern Western Society today people are free to worship as they choose.

People have the freedom to worship as they so choose…

Yes…

But that does not mean that these same people are TOLERANT!

They’re not… just look at Mike Huckabee… or Rick Santorum… or Jeb Bush, or those Shiites, those Sunni’s… be of my Tribe… follow my faith… and only mine…

And only mine…

Religious People SUCK!

3: Malfeasance

Often the Ministers, Preachers, Priests, Deacons, Advisors, the people in control, whomsoever, misappropriate or steal from their flock, their wards: the poor, frightened masses huddled around their edificial doorsteps and sanctuaries.

Reports of stealing surface frequently in local, national, and international news stories…

Sometimes the story is about a Bishop sending dollars to a niece… Or an Archbishop, a Cardinal of The Church, on assignment at the Vatican Bank… (I sooooo love the fact that the Vatican has its own Bank…), manages to misappropriate a few tens of millions or so of Lira, Euro’s … or Dollars; or whatever… or some Priest or Minister or Deacon just runs off with the paltry weekly till… like I said whatever, whomsoever.

The Scandal at the Vatican Bank says a headline in the Financial Times LTD:

But they steal…

And what about all those Bishops, those almost Cardinal like Princes of The Church, who live in 30 room mansions guarded by uniformed men, with four or five servants catering to their every whim; and a driver for their car… Or those Evangelical Pastors like Pat Robertson who own TV networks, and mega estates, and control media empires… And grow their own fame and wealth over and over again as they live better, and better, and better, on the wages from the donations of their flock…

And the FLOCK benefits how?

Trickledown Faith I suppose… a lot like Republican trickledown economics from the rich to benefit the poor…

Trickledown…

My ass…

Oh… lest I forget… what about those other Ministers of Faith who live so high on the Hog of their “flocks” donations that they own multiple homes, drive multiple cars, and have gold faucets in their bathrooms… Gold Faucets and Amenities…

The Bakker’s did that you know not so far back; Tammy Faye and Jim, they had gold handles on their amenities… Tammy even had gold faucet handles on her Bidet so every time she went near her vaJayJay for hygienic purposes she touched pay dirt.

Damn

“Nearer my God to thee…”

Onward… my work is done here…

Done…

4: Marital and Sexual Infidelity…

It gets somewhat complicated here… as I’ve lumped two categories together, politicians and Men of the Cloth; but those categories are actually one…

To keep it simple I’ll start with a simple list:

Famous Men of The Cloth who played around:

Ted Haggard, first with a male prostitute… and with drugs… and then with a male congregant…

George Alan Reker (and this one is a HOT one…), he was caught at an airport returning from an Island vacation with a paid for “rent-boy”.

Joe Barron (this one is scorching hot), as Joe was caught by police with a webcam and condoms at a rendezvous with a 13-year-old girl…

Tony Alamo of Tony Alamo Christian Ministries … is a classic… Not only was Tony cheating on his wife, but he was convicted of transporting young girls, and boys, across state lines for sexual activities and pornography. Both God and Society are safe though as Tony is behind bars serving a 175-year sentence.

Bishop Eddie Long… this married, respected, religious gentleman settled out of court various claims of coerced sexual contact with his male congregants…

And finally:

Jimmy Swaggart… here we have an individual whose variations on his vows were almost normal, almost regular…

David Vitter

Almost

Jimmy’s sin, Jimmy’s scandal, was an ongoing tryst with a female prostitute a couple of times a month in a Louisiana motel room, and there were some kinky stories to go along with the pictures that were displayed in the Super Market Tabloids; some tall tales about how Jimmy liked having the lady sit naked on top of a dresser, with her legs spread as far open as possible, as he screamed at her about “sin” …

Jimmy Swaggart

SIN!

But that’s only a story…

A story

So who really knows…

And what of the Religious Right’s anointed pre-El Trumpo politicians, merely simple infidelity with other women here, unless otherwise noted:

Senators:

David Vitter, Louisiana, Republican, Pete Domenici, New Mexico, Republican, Larry Craig, Idaho, Republican (with men, and in an airport toilet no less…), John Ensign, Nevada, Republican, Bob Packwood, (love that name) Oregon, Republican.

Vitter

Congressmen:

The House Speaker himself, Newt Gingrich, Georgia, Republican, Henry Hyde, Illinois, Republican, Robert Livingston, Louisiana, Republican, Bob Barr, Georgia, Republican, Steven La Tourette, Ohio. Republican.

And finally a Governor:

Mark Sanford, South Carolina, Republican.

And all of these characters are overtly, consistently, and conscientiously religious… And they demand, and OFTEN, constituent fidelity to a higher power as they exercise power over their constituent’s plebian lives.

There ain’t one of those 13 REPUBLICAN FAMILY VALUES ESPOUSERS, SOCIAL CONSERVATIVE elected officials above that would have been in power without deference to the Higher Power…

NOT ONE!

And unless I’ve miss-read my 10 Commandments, and misunderstood the intent of the “Holy Book” religious fiction I’ve absorbed, ADULTERY is frowned upon; as is sex with a member of your own gender… And I think sex with children is a no-no too, although I’m not too sure of that last one though.

Hypocrites!

And much of the mainline populace in the South, and poor mid-western and far western states, falls for the same God given spiel over, and over, again…

And women vote for these guys over, and over, again

And that part I simply can’t figure out…

Damn!

5: The Sanctity of SEX

Now this is a catchall… it has nothing to do with Priests, Ministers, Preachers, Rabbis, Monks, or elected officials per se… and all to do with all of them, and some businesses too. It’s all about how these players manipulate faith, belief, circumstances, attitudes, values, and issues to make money,to sell product, or to garner power.

And they all do it in the name of Conservative Social Issues, purity of purpose, Family Values, and GOD.

The sanctity of sex…

The purity of family values…

Ever hear of Chick-fil-A… or the Television Network TLC and the show 18 Children and Counting?

Buy a chicken filet sandwich from Chick-fil-A, a God supporting and God fearing company, and you’ll support the Bible’s commands, and GOD’S demand that marriage is between one man and one woman.

chick-fil-a

Complicated this stuff… food, sex, and social policy all in one chicken filet sandwich.

Complicated…

Damn… this might be the Mother Lode…

Damn

And of course TLCand the Duggar’s19 kids,

19 kids, 19! the Duggar’s…

And that show was all about: family, the simple life, God… and all-American down home family values… purity, modesty, faith in God… and of course no birth control… the Duggar’s often said that they:

“… would allow God to decide how many children they would have…”

And of course all of the children were home schooled all of the time, and all outside entertainments like movies, videos, and music were severely limited. And all dating was chaperoned… And the family was strictly male hierarchical with strict codes of conformity and subservient roles for women…

How perfectly Republican… what perfect Social Conservatives they were…

How Godly…

Except

Except…

EXCEPT…

Except the oldest son, Josh, admitted to fondling two or three of his younger sisters when he was a teenager… And soon it was discovered that Josh, this youthful male pillar of moral integrity from a FAMILY OF MORAL PILLARS, had a long-time, active, account with the cheating spouses (for sex) website, Ashley Madison…

And all the while Josh was sexually cheating on his wife, Josh was actively lobbying for his Fundamentalist Christian Lifestyle and advocating chastity, fidelity, monogamy, and other fundamental Christian values.

And selling product on TV…

And making money…

Hypocrite

How REPUBLICAN!

Religious People SUCK…

OK…

I’ll stop now; I’m gonna stop at 5… there’s more, lots and lots more out there that I could add, but that’s for later, for another time, this is enough… But I could come back to this tomorrow, there’s so much more… these guys pull this stuff so often.

So often…

And America watches those TV shows, eats those sandwiches, and buys those products.

And the women of America still vote for those Dudes…and go to those Sunday services…

You’d a thought they’d be wise to it all by now.

Damn

RELIGIOUS PEOPLE SUCK!

So I’m gonna keep voting Democratic… they sin my way.

More quietly…
