*warning* politics + religion = not your typical happy go lucky tuesday post.

sometimes the verbal insanity spewing from seemingly “intelligent” people
really leaves me flabbergasted…

admittedly
we as humans have committed unimaginable atrocities
against our planet, and one another
and it seems inevitable that at some point
we will have to pay for our
mistreatment of both the resources
and the peoples we have wronged

but to blame it on your very own bearded white dude in the sky
who is evidently
so malicious
so wrathful
and so callous
that he gleefully sweeps thousands of innocents into his
ultimate plan of revenge against the “sinners” of the world
makes me

1. throw up in my mouth just a little
2. wonder gee, how on earth could sensible "organized religions" such as this have difficulties attracting new, young, educated followers?

well glenn beck as if you weren’t there already, your comments regarding the quake put you solidly in the same league as say people like pat robertson, who claimed in the wake of the devastating earthquake in haiti last year that haiti "swore a pact to the devil" and has "been cursed" ever since.

or with other religious conservatives who claimed katrina was god's punishment for america's alleged sins.

or even worse, alongside those who have radically departed from all sense of reality, i.e. rev. jerry falwell who suggested that gays, lesbians, feminists, and others bore responsibility for the 9-11 terrorist attacks and said, “ i really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the aclu, people for the american way, all of them who have tried to secularize america. i point the finger in their face and say 'you helped this happen.”

well i have one thing to say to you mr beck…
if there really is such a god as yours, high in the sky,
waiting to dole our misery on those who foster hate and fear….

Love love love it! That guy is a grade A whack-a-doo. If we could just somehow arrange a Palin/Beck rally in a seismic zone, we could test out this theory.

The only way I'd believe his theory on these natural disasters was if I saw the Earth swallow up pedofiles, crazy political leaders in the middle east who kill their own people and, rapists, murderers etc...Only then will I think, wow he might have a point after all...
