Use it for Good or Lose it

Religious zealots, talk of God’s great love

but what they believe in is his unconditional hatred

of those he chooses to hate.

Funny how their God always

hates the same things they do.

God doesn’t have a Twitter or Facebook account

but they do and it’s where these bash gays and liberals.

I wonder why God would hate what he created with

his supposed unconditional and boundless love.

These zealots claim God helps those who help themselves.

I say it’s what they help themselves to

and who they harm while helping themselves

that really is what matters.

Some preachers focus on the coming apocalypse

instead of working to create a better here and now.

These preachers have absolutely no need

to buy insurance as they’re already dead.

Their concept of God is a murderous psychopath

who will torture you forever if you don’t agree to be his BFF.

My response to that line of thinking is

“You and I read the Bible very differently.”

God or at least my God doesn’t instruct me to hate anybody.

I prefer a faith of love and understanding

that doesn’t preach condemnation.

But I guess it’s much easier to keep converts

in line with fear than with love.

Racism, homophobia, bigotry,

xenophobia and misogyny

all have historic roots in religion.

These issues wouldn’t be in America without

religious zealots and their God of hate.

We would be so much further ahead,

socially, scientifically and intellectually,

in the world than we are currently.

You’ve heard the “my cross to bear” expression.

Think of the cross as an opportunity.

Use that opportunity to spread a faith of love.

You and everyone you meet in life

will happier and blessed and our short stay

on this planet can be a taste of Heaven

instead of a Hell on Earth. Peace.

Torture Research

A Pew Research Center study revealed
the more often people attend church,
the more likely they are to support torture.
I don’t know how you can support torture
while claiming to be a Christian.
I don’t fit the study as
I’m opposed to torture
even though I sat through the torture
of the Catholic Mass for decades.
It was a small glimpse into the Spanish Inquisition.
A University of Maryland study found
people who regularly watch Fox News
are more likely to agree with torture.
That’s because they are masochists
who like being mentally abused by Fox News.
