Holy Frikking Cosmic Jewish Zombie on a Stick, it’s Blasphemy Day!
People should have the right to say what they deeply believe, and I deeply believe that while people should be respected, ideas should not. No idea or creed or belief should be off limits to question or criticism. The more people try to forbid “insult” to something they think is off-limits, the more imperative deliberate refusal to comply with those demands is. If we all shut up, then that’s a victory for those who would try to control our opinions.
So here goes:
“Jesus” as portrayed in the gospels never existed. There may have been an original apocalyptic preacher (or several) named “Jesus” but the legends and misquotes and other rubbish that’s been added in to christianity have made a historical Jesus as relevant as a historical “Robin of Loxley” would be to Robin Hood legends.
Paul probably had temporal lobe epilepsy or a stroke, then made up a bunch of stuff about someone he had never met.
The Catholic church is more interested in perpetuating its own wealth and power than in human wellbeing. The Pope reminds me of the Emperor from Star Wars more than anything else.
Joseph Smith was a con artist. Same goes for L. Ron Hubbard, Rael, and most other founders of religions.
There is nothing wrong with blood transfusions. Eating meat is just fine. So is contraception.
The caste system of Hinduism is one of the most cruel and inhumane systems I’ve ever heard of.
Haile Selassie was not a divine being. Sun Myung Moon wasn’t either.
Prayer does nothing.
Quartz crystals are just pretty rocks, and don’t have any healing energies.
Satan is imaginary. So is Thor. Moses, too. most likely.
Faith isn’t a virtue. Neither is tithing. The bible isn’t anything special.
Dry sandy Parmesan cheese in a can is acceptable for human consumption (forgive me Your Noodliness, but I can’t leave any religion out!).
o<-< <-This is Muhammad taking a nap.
Twilight fans are people too.
So, is there anyone’s Sacred Cow that I haven’t poked? Let me know, so I can make sure to get in a jab on this most unholy of unholy days.
