     "All beliefs are barriers to the truth"

     "There are times when you gotta stand up in church and shout  "Bullshit'"
                                                   Ken Kesey

     All right, I've had about all I can take!

This religion thing is getting out of hand, and none of these dangerous fools  threatening our very existence ever met an enlightened being, which makes them doubly dangerous for not having experienced the elixir of realization.

     Religion?  Its all about belief, mind games.   All those overdressed bishops and sh*t spouting their only son of god, and god's chosen people, crap.  It's really frightening.  I'm praying some strange phenomena, a truly divine intercession, will make all the holy books disappear overnight.  We really need to start over, wipe the slate of the mind clean.  Fatwa that!

    I get the fact that you think you're a moral being, you keep reminding me.  Not only that but you attempt to tell me what to do and how to live.  You must believe you have some kind of badge, some special dispensation, some powerful ego hallucination to, first, believe the un-proveable and second, to attempt to force me to take the consequences of your un-proveable and fascistic beliefs and bent morality and, worse, to propose that such be enshrined in law - so then it applies to all people who may think you are nothing short of a bit crazy, not to mention incredibly egotistical.

     And I hear a lot of talk about freedom, mostly yours.

    You say you're a Christian. Well, I don't see you overturning the money changers at the temple?   At what better example than following your master's courage in that matter?  And you say you're Jewish?  And yet there appears to be some obvious genetic defect that has resulted in people believing they are God's chosen people, and the rest are smucks.  Whoa, that's a whopper.   That's a double dose of megalomania.  And what better strategy to control people and sanctify your own bullshit at the same time.  Boy, that could lead to war!

      It seems religion has become some kind of front for a power trip, at least for a sizeable portion of believers who disgrace the many fine people doing good in the world - all of whom are engaging in acts of kindness which need no introduction, and no dogma to interfere with the sentiment or pervert the impulse with promises of heaven.

     Well, I think more of us see the problem now?  It's those damn old books, and all the old guys in robes, in desperate need of a good blow job.  Oh yeah, but sex is bad, I forgot.  And Adam And Eve? Jesus, honey, stay away from that tree of knowledge!  Suck the fruitcake.

      And, blasphemy? I mean really, that is some serious mental disease to push on others... like we just blew up some of your statues on a mountainside?   Apparently, ironically, it appears that words shake your faith, and that pisses you off, just enough to melt your moral fascade"  enough to take you to war even. Oh yeah, gimme some more of those "preventive wars" in the name of peace and your religion.   Make mine nuclear.  And then make sure we have to borrow, at interest, from a private bank to reconstruct the extensive damage.  Why leave your prison?

     How bout we just sit down together and share a little silence, maybe some nice meditation music, and then we slowly build over time into an intensity of music and dance, losing ourselves in the process?   Can we try that?  A break from what has been called normal behavior.  And no readings from old books?   What the world needs now is a good Bacchanal,a real time enveloping planetary energy of peace and love.  Forget the holy books, be your own master, and with the acceptance of self likely comes a love for others.  Make Love, not war.  I don't know much but that sounds like it  might work.
