GOD must be crazy

Hi, Nomi:

I put this on my blog, but since I've had 47 profile views (45 of them, mine!) I thought I'd put this out for a wider audience and, I hope, piss a few more KKKristians off!

GOD must be crazy. Not "The Gods Must Be Crazy"; that was a delightful film about South Africa and some of its denizens.

No, this is about the KKKristan GOD and his jihadherents.

There is just something about a GOD whose followers are so convinced of their righteousness and everyone else's wrongteousness. The admonition to "Love one's brother as one's self" apparently means just that to them--it's the determination of just who is one's brother that seems to create problems for the KKKristians. Those benighted people of the Mid-east could be their brothers, if they would just eschew their insane, fantasy based religion that excuses their wanton killing and demonization of those who are not them. The same is true of Cath-O-Licks, Jews, Buddhists and all faiths that are not the FAITH of the KKKristians.

I have to admit that I was once a Cath-O-Lick and believed in the more dire aspects of God ( I never saw any real evidence for a God of mercy and compassion). But, now, thanks to the fundigelical taliban of AmeriKKKa, I'm an atheist. Where other arguments, mere words, could not convince me, their actions have. If their GOD, the being that they so passionately believe in, is responsible for their existence, then they must be his idea of our hell on earth

dear democommie,

many many thanks for this and your previous posts.

I have now mixed feelings about the movie, "The Gods Must Be Crazy", because I've seen and heard some well reasoned criticism from people who argue that the way the tribal folks are represented is less than accurate.

I wonder if Nezua has written about it or Pam Spaulding...

Rhett Jones was sometimes a Catholic (even taught CCD at Providence College) and sometimes a Free Thinker...

My idea of Spiritual Leaders are Walt Whitman and Grace Paley and some Fine folks who aren't writers but whose Hearts are Extraordinary...

Hey, Demo. Nice post.

As you know from other encounters, I'm ambivalent on the GOD question. I'm not, however, ambivalent on the Religious Fanatic question.

You, my friend, nailed it.
