Doug “shared” this picture today on his FaceBook page.
It’s funny, right?
But then someone who obviously did not read the sign properly posted this:
Nothing to laugh about, in these times you better have some kind of faith and talking about God is not a bad thing for our kids they get it better than adults do. Its a shame more dont have there kids in bible school on Sundays . Kids love religion and when they dont they will tell you its nothing that has to be shoved down anyones throat.”
Doug went on a rant that is awesome! Naturally, I have to share it.
Kids believe in Santa Claus too. They love make believe. They DON’T love religion, they love fantasy stories…fighting giants, magically parting the sea, serpents with multiple heads. In these times you need to take responsiblity for your own actions and do something, you don’t need ‘faith’ that leaves you waiting for some fictional being to resolve your problems. Religion doesn’t educate a child, it programs him. There are some good morals buried in the religious antecdotes, but to believe that there is a single omniscient, omnipotent being that judges each and every person’s individual actions, good or bad, when good and bad are subjective and matters of perspective, is just absolutely and undeniably insane at best. Who gives its job performance revue, huh? Who created so called God, a greater God? Why would a god create beings that have to eat other living beings to survive, as some animals do not have the choice to be vegetarians…and quite honestly, plants are also living things. Christians think the natives need to drop their crazy multi god beliefs as being heathen, and then turn around and worship a god of their own…the Catholics go one step further and re-create multiple dieties and call them saints. At the very least, giving yourself over to “God” is a sign that you couldn’t take responsibility for your own actions or control your own life and needed to remove yourself from the guilt involved with the failure of handling that responsibility. If you need that crutch, and some people do, and it makes you get through your own life, then I’m all for it (for that individual privately.) But the next person that tries to shove God down my throat is going to start a fucking war. I’m sick to death of it, and I for one am just not going to tolerate it any more, and am going to assume that any attempt to convert me is a sign of aggression, as people threaten me with going to hell if I don’t succumb to the delusion (and that, quite franky, is a fucking threat.) Religion is generally real events having been misinterpreted by stupid people. Christianity didn’t even start until 200 years after Christ died. Most people can’t recall what happened yesterday accurately, let alone 200 years ago. That Catholic church admittedly hides certain historic texts from the general public…that’s fucking evil right there, hiding history. Religions are the most profitable institutions on the planet. No organization has a worse reputation for molesting children than the Christian/Catholic churches. No organization, incuding the Nazis, have a worse reputation for slaughtering people who did not believe what they believe than Christianity and other religions. It is a plague on our society that keeps people from pursuing the truth, and it is as contagioius and deadly as the black death.”
What is left to say after that???
