Religion Part 2
Religion Part 2
I think God just gets confused sometime. I mean like He’s watching a baseball game ok? The pitcher blesses himself before throwing the ball then… the batter blesses himself! What’s a God to do? Or there’s a plane crash and one person out of the 300 passengers survives and says “God was watching over me.” God thinks, “What the hell are you saying!.. that I didn’t give a shit about the other 299!” It really pisses me off when people profess to know and comprehend the uncomprehensable… the supreme force that created the universe. “Why did God allow the disaster of 7/11?”, some ask. Maybe He nodded off for a moment or perhaps was busy creating a galaxy 12 billion light years from here. Gimme a break. Also, which God is responsible? Yewah?, Allah? Budda?.. Yes, we all have our favorite invisable guy in the sky don’t we. Not me. In A recent “Letter To The Editor” in the Miami Herald the writer cited reasons for All the trouble and woes we’re experiencing. I responded to some of them:
WE DON’T ALLOW PRAYER IN SCHOOL BECAUSE MADELINE MURRY O’HARE DIDN’T WANT IT.
Hello!.. It’s in the Constitution. And for good reason. In this democracy we are guaranteed not only freedom of religion but also freedom from religion. You can say prayers in school in the Arab nations. In fact, you damn well better or you'’ll be turning the pages of the Koran with only two fingers. Madeline was murdered because some religious folks didn’t like her using her own mind.
LETTING OUR DAUGHTERS HAVE ABORTIONS IF THEY WANT
Daughters have been having abortions since recorded history and they will continue to. Thankfully, because of the Surpreme Court decision on Roe vs Wade, they no longer have to use a wire coat hanger. As for not having to tell their parents, well it would be just peachy if all parents were like The Brady Bunch mom and dad. Unfortunately, there are abusive, drunk, crack smoking fathers who would beat them senseless or maybe even kill them.
CONDOMS GIVEN OUT IN SCHOOL
Well, I agree this is wrong. What this country needs is more teenage pregnant girls!.. perhaps committing suicide because of it.. more aids and syphilis! Yes, boys will be boys but it takes two to tango and girls will be girls too. We can’t stop it but we can make it safer.
THE IMMORAL PRIVATE LIVES OF ELECTED OFFICIALS
When it comes to the private lives of elected officials, the airhead who wrote this nonsense needs a history lesson. Franklin Delano Roosevelt had a mistress, his wife Elenore was a lesbian and also had a mistress. He pulled this country out of the worst depression in it’s history. Thomas Jefferson, one of our most brilliant statesmen fathered at least seven known children from his favorite female slave. John F. Kennedy’s extramarital romps are well known. Oh, let me tell you a difference between Kennedy and Clinton. Kennedy never lied about his sexual affairs. Why? Because he was never asked and that’s the way it should be. If you want a pure and chaste man to lead this country elect a priest but keep him away from the kids. If you want a strong leader, judge him on his leadership ability and keep your snooping nose out of his private life.
SEXUAL CONTENT IN TV, MOVIES AND MUSIC
TV: You have a channel selector on your remote. If you don’t like what you’re seeing, click it.
MOVIES: Read the rating code. If PG or R is offensive to you, don’t go.
MUSIC: Don’t listen if you don’t like it.
It’s said that wisdom comes with age but sometimes age comes alone.
