Religion – Blog No. 5

religionThe intolerance with which different religions regard each other is not productive.  No one god is sitting on a plinth higher than any other.  There is space for every kind of religion, every type of belief in this world, providing that it can stand to reason.  Religious people should not feel afraid if their religion battles to answer probing questions about itself, its origin.  What matters about religion, is faith.  Goodwill.  If your religion does not actively encourage goodwill towards others – all the time – then I question its purpose, its validity.

Religion is not supposed to be a profitable business.  The fact that the Catholic church is worth billions – that they sit on – should bother everyone on this planet.  The fact that evangelists worldwide are selling God every Sunday should cause an uproar.  God is being pimped.  He is casually bent to fit whatever shape best suits the wants of his followers and since he is not around to protest vocally at any misrepresentation that might be underway, his ‘work’ is done all over the world by fanatics and extremists, amongst others.

Would this world implode if its people were to discover that God was a construct?  Or would it be mature enough to handle the reality?  And Satan?  What about him?  What if God and Satan are in fact, one?  Dr Jeckyll and Mr Hyde?  Remember that to see the light, you need darkness.  Has God faced his darkness, his demons?  I wonder.  Perhaps that is why we go around and around and around.  Perhaps God is avoiding the subject of his failings and we all wait until he accepts his nemesis.  In anycase, God and Satan are what people have made them into.  We can only bear witness.

  1. She screams, Get out of this church and don’t come back. This is a church for liberals and lesbians. You are a man. You religion is vain. You are the cause of all sin. So says the Quaker Flakes for a prohibition, for lesbian marriages, for divorce, for abortion, for homosexuals, for drugs, for raising minimum wage, for taking away guns, for the destruction of mankind. And, she sounds like she wet her pants and she needs changed.
