“God has no religion.” — Gandhi

September 11, 2010

The ninth anniversary of the so-called terrorist attacks against the United States.

Also, the first annual “International Burn The Koran Day.”

This seems like a pretty good idea to me.  It reminds me of why I like religion so much.

I like how my good friend in the video implores all Christians to be Christ-like.  That was actually one of my favourite quotes by Jesus: “Anyone who disagrees with me is evil, so you must destroy what is sacred to them.”

It ranks right up there with “judge not, lest ye be judged” and “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

It seems the ultimate rationale for this whole celebrate-good-times-come-on is that Islam, and the Qur’an are just fundamentally violent and evil.

“put to death everyone in the cities, men, women, and dependents”

“kill every male dependent, and kill every woman who has had intercourse with a man, but spare for yourselves every woman among them who has not had intercourse.”

“All who are found will be stabbed, all who are taken will fall by the sword; their infants will be dashed to the ground before their eyes. . . .”

“kill without pity; spare no one. Kill and destroy them all, old men and young, girls, little children and women. . . .”

etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.etc.

I guess my friends at the dove church are right, the Holy Bible is a terribly violent book, and must be burned.  Because Jesus is God, right?  And God spends most of The Book killing people, or having them kill and maim and burn and torture each other.  And we are supposed to be God-like in thought and action … right?

And really, how can any religion that has started so many wars be called anything but ‘evil’?  It seems that pretty much every major conflict over the past four thousand years (and how many minor conflicts?) has cited the God of the Old and New Testaments as its motivation.  Then there was also slavery, colonialism, the atomic bomb, genocide, imperialism, ………………..

Please, my friends, the time has come for action!  Join us at the Dove World Outreach Centre in Gainsville, Florida on September 11, 2010, for International Burn The Holy Bible day.  It is our duty to impose our higher morality on those who would inflict their evil ways and laws upon us all.  I tell you truly, this is the ultimate path to world peace.

Wait a minute.  Ummmmmm.  Yeah, never mind.  Just send me a donation or burn in hell forever you filthy sinner!

“It’s become so obvious, you are so oblivious to yourself” — Wilco

Canadians enjoy making fun of Americans for being ignorant of the world outside their borders. I enjoy asking these Canadians what the capital of New Brunswick is, to which they invariably respond “well, at least we’re not AS ignorant as Americans.”

It’s true, I guess.  In a contest to see who can be the worst global citizen, second last is not as bad as dead last.  One thing I enjoy about pots and kettles, is that given enough time, both will sink to the bottom of the river.

Every moment’s a little bit later.
