Hmmmmm, What To Blog About Now?

I’m revamping this old post for Dude Write 7 Deadly Sins. You should check it out. I figured that I have tons of sin in my blog already, but this was my first post that dealt with religion, and my contempt for it. Basically I’m stirring the pot, and I’m sure that there’s some sort of sin here with the small bit of gayness that will qualify me.

What the hell people? I’m running out of topics, and the four of you that read this aren’t much help. I guess I’ll start by saying that I don’t believe in God. I generally capitalize it out of respect for those of you that do. I’m not saying God doesn’t exist, I just have a hard time buying into it. It’s not just God, because I don’t believe in any other deity either. I do believe in people and humanity though, and I try to follow the ten commandments as much as possible.(Well, five to ten anyhow.)

On the other hand, I don’t care what you believe in, as long as it doesn’t hurt anybody. You can have faith that Rumplestiltskin is the creator of the universe if it makes you feel happy. I know he wouldn’t be my first choice, what with all the hoarding babies and all.

That’s Jesus

I do feel quite a bit of contempt for religious zealots however. It’s one thing to believe in something that comforts you, but quite another to shove your beliefs down someone else’s throat. I should clarify that I’m mostly talking about children here. It’s fine to send your kids to Sunday school while their little sponge-like brains can soak in Jesus and all of the beautiful stories of love, wine and fishing, but for the sake of the human race, don’t beat the Lord into them and make them afraid to be kids. When they get to whatever age is reasonable, give them the choice. Don’t tell them that they will be punished if they don’t believe in God or Allah, or whatever the Scientologists pray to. Love them unconditionally like a good Christian, Jew or Jehovah’s Witness should. Jesus would want it that way.

While we’re on the subject of religion. LEAVE THE FUCKING GAYS ALONE! I cannot stress enough that they are humans too. I’ve dissected some of their elders and they are the same as us inside and out. (Except maybe for Nazis) I know a few homosexuals of both genders, and am proud to call them my friends. What does it matter to you who they love and why they love them? I actually met a couple not too long ago that almost turned me gay, with their happiness and love for everyone.(Just kidding folks, I don’t think that’s on their agenda, but I’d make a pretty good bear I twink.) Anyhoo, just lay off them, treat everyone with respect until they prove undeserving, and you’ll be surprised how many good friends you will make.

They love each other and that’s beautiful, but studded belts? Really?

While we aren’t on the subject of bullying, I’d like to ask you to not bully people, and if you have kids, please teach by example that everyone deserves a chance in life. Think about how much of a nerd you are, and what it would be like if everyone you knew teased you about it, maybe knocked you down a few times calling you fatty four eyes and then stole your sandwich because your mom makes the best homemade jam in the township. Sorry, I might have drifted away there. Anyhow, unless they are Nazis or KKK, I don’t think you should be picking on anyone.

Stupid Nazis

Your mom’s pretty hot,

P.S. Sorry if I offended any Nazis with this post.

  1. Ok, I’ll comment. Blog more about your adventures at camp. Or how about jumping into step-parenting with both feet. A mans point of view on the nuptual planning? Whatever you write, we’ll keep reading. Funny stuff:)

  2. I’m pretty sure that if there is a God, he/she doesn’t believe in you either! Don’t let it get you down, I know you and I’m not to sure if I believe you exist!

    Peace Out

  3. I think your Blog is awesome! I look forward to reading it every day! Write about how much fun we all had working at Amanda’s when it was on Division St. How we would drink till 3am, grab a couple hours sleep and be back in to serve Bacon And Eggs for 7am! All without throwing up, and likely still a little drunk! Give us some of your adventures at Copperfields, always a good time! How about growing up out in the boonies? What were the local like in Harwood? Need more ideas???

  4. Birdman, I couldn’t agree more. A lot of religious types put too much effort in trying to “save” and “convert” others with their one personal beliefs that often times neglect their own faults and failures. The truth is, no matter what bible you read or what god you believe in, no one truly knows what the afterlife holds for us. We are all human (well most of us are), and by design are faulty by nature, so we should just simply live our lives as best as we can, and allow others to do the same. Live and let live. If everyone would just subscribe to those simple words, the world would be a much better place.

    I really enjoyed your post.

  5. I have a generic quip I use for the overly religious. Sometimes I whip it out with atheists as well.

    “The bible was written over 1500 years ago, some parts even older than that. Does this mean we knew it all back then, had it all figured out? We understand more about life, science and the way the universe works now than we did 10 years ago, let alone 50, let alone 1500. For anyone to think you have all the answers and can, with confidence, say ‘That’s the way it is,’ you must be one egotistical sonofabitch.”

    Memorize it. Try it out. And watch peoples’ faces become stunned. It’s a hoot. 🙂

    As for everything else you said in this post, /salute.

    • That’s awesome. I will try it for sure, but most people I know, will not argue religion with me. It’s pointless, because they don’t like my views, and they hate it worse when I agree with them. I just say that of course there is a God, if that’s what they believe in. What ever butters your toast. Thanks for the salute, I appreciate it.

  6. I hate those door to door people who come and knock on your door and try to cram their religion down your throat. They are persistent assholes! Once they knocked on my door and I didn’t answer. They kept on knocking, looking in my windows, knocked some more, knocked on the windows, went around to the back door and knocked on it. Then they left a flyer in my door. I was about to call the cops on them for harassment.

    • That reminds me of an old joke.
      Q: What do you get when you cross a Hell’s Angel and a Jehovah’s Witness?
      A: Someone who knocks on your door on Sunday morning and tells you to go fuck yourself.

  7. I’m kind of religious and I agree with most of what you say. Live and let live, brother.

    A bear? You? Forgive me, but what little I know about you I think I find that hard to be true …

    • Well, I’m short, fat and hairy. I like to be the boy in any sexual relationship, and I have been caught eating garbage at the dump. I’d say I’m close enough. Cheers, Jeezy.

  8. While I have my own opinions and questions about religion, the one thing that I am sure of is the fact that everyone should just try to be a good person. That’s about all I can say on the topic.

  9. I believe in God, but there are a lot of things wrong with some religious institutions. Intead of teaching love, they teach hate, and for what reason, I don’t know (there were a lot of commas in that sentence). I don’t understand why certain people can’t at least ignore other peoples’ lifestyles, especially if they hold no bearing whatsoever over their wellbeing.

    And, bullying has gotten so much worse in just a few years. Sure, I was bullied once or twice in my life, but there were no camera phones back then to document the events and make them publicly known. When we were bullied, it was only a private affair. Technology is partly responsible for the rise in bullying and the lasting effects of it. Down with technology! Nah, but in all seriousness, stricter penalties must be enforced against bullies.

    • I’ve been on both sides of the bullying fence. They both suck. I don’t remember any particular bullying instance that I did, but I know I’ve done it. Being the smallest kid in class, meant for the shoe to be on the other foot, most of the time. I got to practice fighting back a lot.
