God kills

Evangelicals -- why do I have to call them that? It sounds too much as though I had some respect for their ideas or their actions when in fact those ideas differ from the ideas of the certifiably insane only by virtue of their numbers.

Witches, demons and evil spirits; a malicious bastard of a god who buries cute little children in mudslides, drowns them in floods and lets them rot with AIDS, starvation and malnutrition while performing "miracles" for those who cower, grovel and praise.

Of course it didn't take long for some jelly brained "evangelical" to declare the horrible holocaust in Australia the work of their God O' Love; his vengeance against the innocent for the collective and apparently hereditary guilt of not killing abortionists. I would hope he gets hit by lightening, but it would be more like justice to let him roast over the fire he justifies. I'm willing to bet his miserable god won't bother to do the Shadrach, Meschach and Abednigo trick on his behalf.

I'm not even comfortable with words like insane, since that would elicit feelings of sympathy such people do not deserve. I'm not of course calling opposition to abortion insane, but their justification seems to have little to do with anything more than keeping a fetus alive until it can be baptized. After that, their god or they themselves may just wish to kill it anyway for having some illegal opinion. God kills, says Pastor Nalliah of Catch the Fire Ministries. Particularly the innocent, it would seem.

Religion: it is the bastion of the insane.

I bet your couldn't sell half the stories in the bible (even TO the insane) if they were told in such as way as to disguise their origin. They are so incredible and violent that most people wouldn't recognize them as "divinely inspired".

What non-sense.

As I've said over and again, religion is a socially acceptable form of insanity, ranging from the mild and chronic to the acute and fatal.
