If we all hold hands and very quietly shout.

I suppose it’s fitting that I rant about religion on Easter Sunday, but this wound me up, and then Steve tipped me over the edge.
Most of the problems I see around the world have been contributed to by organised religion. Dr. Williams suggests that modern culture is to blame because we have become obsessed by ageing and mortality. I’m pretty sure we have always been obsessed by these things; they are two of the reasons why we have religion, to make sense of the unknown. To then blame those things for the ills of our society is a bit fucking rich if you ask me.
It would be nice for once to hear these holier than thou fuckers have a go at the real reasons that our society is rapidly disappearing down the shitter. But it’s hard to take seriously an organisation that has a massive stock portfolio, which includes shares in arms manufacturing companies. The Catholic Church is no better, forbidding people to use condoms in countries ravaged by AIDS.
It’s about time we did something about these evil minded bastards. Outlaw organised religion, and make worship and faith an activity to be carried out in the privacy of ones own home. I’m actually being quite conservative there, what I really want to do is jail anyone who incites religious fervour or teaches creationism. While we’re at it, someone from the Vatican, preferably the pope, should be jailed for abetting murder. Countless thousands of people have died all around the world because the Church will not allow them to use condoms. They told the bare faced lie that condoms were porous. How do these people fucking sleep at night ?
I really hope that there is a moment, very close to death, when everything becomes clear. An epiphany if you like, when there is a realisation that we exist for our life, then we cease to exist, that there is no god or afterlife and definitely no singing of the choir invisible. Maybe that will be the only time that these people will realise they have done a grievous wrong.
