Not Quite a Rant

I've been brewing a socio-political rant but I don't even know where to begin now that the Pope has put his foot in his mouth and fuses are being lit all over the world to thrill and entertain Allah, again. How hard is it to see that every bit of misery on this planet (that's not a direct result of human greed) stems from the superstitious voodoo bullshit espoused by each and every religious group that ever claimed a prophet or climbed a pulpit. I wish they would just get on with their frigging arma-fuckin-geddon and be done with it. I'll spade their ashes into my garden and the world will go on about it's business better off without them all. Sam Harris has it right and be-frigged if I know what to do about it. Instead, I offer this - "The Heart of Life" by John Mayer" I hate to see you cry lying there in that position There's things you need to hear So turn off your tears and listen Pain throws your heart to the ground Love turns the whole thing around No it won't all go the way it should But i know the heart of life is good You know it's nothing new Bad news never had good timing But then the circle of your friends Will defend the silver lining Pain throws your heart to the ground Love turns the whole thing around No it won't all go the way it should But i know the heart of life is good Pain throws your heart to the ground Love turns the whole thing around Fear is a friend who's misunderstood But i know the heart of life is good, i know it's good, i know it's good Oh i know it's good Oh i know it's good Oh i do, i do, i do Oh i know it's good

Would it be somehow incorrect to support your position with an "Amen, Sistah!!""

If everyone would just see beyond their own personal religious dogma to see that each faith has value for it's believers.. and that for some of us no faith has value. And simply allow each person to believe what they wish and let it be...

The world so much quieter and safer.

I couldn't agree with you more. Religion is supposed to be about peace but it seems to be at the root of most wars. I am very sick of hearing that every religion thinks they are right and everyone else is wrong. Did they never hear that two things can both be rigt?

I'll always remember a professor saying all religions are true; all religions are false...the problem isn't religion but when greedy, ignorant humans get involved with it.
