Church Threatening To Make Sins Public

December 18, 2008

Christian idiocy at its best.

The thing about being “holy” and “just” in the eyes of thier lord that really ,really pisses me off is that it gives them a sense of power and entitlement.  Case in point: In Florida,  a Jacksonville Christian church has threatened to “go public” with their knowledge of a sexual relationship between one of their parishioners and her new boyfriend.  (link)

The woman is not married, so she’s not screwing around on anyone.  She’s single, healthy, and now has a boyfriend to whom she is no married.  This means she is “living in sin”.  Thing is, she (stupidly)  confessed her “sin” to the minister this church in an attempt to get forgiveness for it.  But, as her guy seems to be better at making her happy than the church was, she’s refused to leave him.  Instead, she opted to leave the church.<BR>

<BR>But, like the spurned and jealous thing it is, the church is taking its revenge.  Even though the woman doesn’t attend  any longer, the minister is going to announce her “sins” in front of the whole congregation so everyone will know what an evil, godless harlot she is.   (My guess is that half the congregation will despise her,  and the other half will want her phone number.  Either way, she’s screwed.)

While all this seems harsh, I want to point out that, theologically, she got off lucky.  Whenever you leave a religion that you’ve bought into, it gets messy.

Scientologists send crack re-programmers after you, no matter where you go.

Jehovah’s Witnesses “shun” you… meaning you can’t ever talk to your own spouse and children,  even if you live in the same house with them.

Islam, of course, is the simplest.  A person who leaves thier faith is to be killed.

I am convinced that if every religion got together and held an amnesty day… a day when you could leave the faith forever with no punishment… these churches and mosques would be considerably emptier from that day on.

Morons.

Vatican to join with repressive Islamic states to crush gay rights at UN

December 15, 2008

Forget the Vatican’s hatred of Mohamed.  Forget the Inquisitions and the Crusades.  Islam and the Vatican can now finally step up and be good friends after all these centuries.  So long as they have someone else to religiously persecute and kill, they can now be good friends at the UN…

Proposed UN declaration may provoke Muslim states

James Reinl, United Nations Correspondent

  • Last Updated: December 14. 2008 12:44AM UAE / December 13. 2008 8:44PM GMT

NEW YORK // Islamic governments are expected to join with the Vatican in protesting against a French-backed declaration in the UN General Assembly that calls for the decriminalisation of homosexuality worldwide.

Rama Yade, France’s secretary of state for human rights, will visit Manhattan this week to throw her weight behind a statement supported by dozens of nations that blasts the outlawing of certain types of sexual behaviour.

The 13-point declaration urges states “to ensure that sexual orientation or gender identity may under no circumstances be the basis for criminal penalties, in particular executions, arrests or detention”.  (read more)

The Names of God

December 12, 2008

My publisher just told me that I’ve not been doing enough shameless flogging for my books.  As such,  the following is an excerpt from The Heathen’s Guide to World Religions, (P. 17&18), explaining where the names of God came from.

The dialogue here begins just after Moses was tossed out of Egypt, when he was stuck tending sheep for Jethro…


Moses and the Sheep

Living well is the best revenge.
~George Herbert, Jacula Prudentum

Moses does okay by all this.  Sure, he’s not exactly the ruler of Egypt, but hey, sheep can be good company too right? He spends all his time feeding sheep, fleecing sheep, cleaning up after sheep, slaughtering sheep, etc.. On his off days, when traders would come through to provide a distraction for him, he was able to spend his days buying and selling sheep. Then he’d lie down at night next to his wife on his soft sheepskin mattress and drift off, no doubt counting sheep. After settling into this routine and finding peace and contentment in the life of a simple shepherd, Moses did what any good urban-prince-turned-shepherd would do: He snapped.

So there he is, mulling his life over and sick to death of the smell of sheep, when it occurs to him that his people have a deal with this god. The deal was that the god would protect and care for them. Anyone who’d been through Egypt in the last few centuries could tell you these people were not exactly cared for and protected. His adoptive family were basically screwing them around left, right and center and getting away with it.

You have a lot of time to think about this when all you’re doing all day long is staring at sheep. You have a lot of time to consider things. A lot of time for resentment to grow.

“Why,” thought Moses over his mutton stew, “should the Egyptians get away with this when they…er…we have a god right here that’s supposed to be protecting them…er, us? Where the hell is he when we need him? What good is a deal with a god if he’s not going to do a damn thing to help out when you’re getting royally screwed?” (Pun intended.)

The story goes that a day came when Moses finally lost it. In what amounted to a mad frenzy of anger and resentment, he decided to take his bitching to the source. Since he’d already confronted Ramses and lost, he decided it was about time to go after El-Shaddai. Basically Moses says, “Hey, what about these Hebrew people?” and El-Shaddai says, “Well, go free them. I’ll help.” (Okay, it was a tad more dramatic than that. But hey, if you want deep character development, find Cecil B. DeMille. I’m a facts kind of guy.)

It was during this famous conversation that El-Shaddai got his new name: Yahweh. It’s Hebrew for “I am.” (The existential god of the mountain?) According to the story, when Moses asked for El-Shaddai’s name the god said, “I am that I am.” As it sounds a little silly saying “The Great I am that I am,” Jews and Christians alike have kept to the Hebrew word for “I am”: Yahweh.

(It should be noted here that the King James Version of the Bible translates “Yahweh” as “Jehovah.” Both words are translated from the same Hebrew characters, but the KJ guys decided to be different. No real reason there. They just decided they wanted to write it out in English characters in a different way than everyone else did. It’s a small difference that, at the time, meant little. But it has since caused many a poor, innocent party-goers to get up at a ridiculously early hour on Sunday morning to brush off the Jehovah’s Witness at the door. It could easily have been a Yahweh’s Witness.)

The Theft of “Good”: How Christianity Stole Decency

December 11, 2008

You’ve heard it a thousand times: “How can you have Good without God?”

Christians love to point out that the word good is derived from the word God. What they fail to point out is that the word God is not Christian. The Christian names for God are from the Greek (theos), Hebrew (Eli), and Latin (Dei). Most scholars agree that the word GOD actually comes from the Sanskrit gheu, meaning “to invoke or to sacrifice to”. Basically, then, what the Christians are saying is that you can’t have good without sacrificing to some ancient Vedic god from India.

I love it when they try semantic arguments.

Anyway…

What really ticks me off about things like this is that there’s an overt theft going on that no one seems to notice. It works like this:

Every time Christianity finds a human trait or action that is beneficial to society (say, giving food to starving children) they decide that they own the concept. From that time on, the action becomes a “Christian act”, and the non-religious are left out of it. Their logic works like this: Giving food to starving children is a Christian act.  Atheists are not Christians. Therefore,  Atheists do not give food to starving children.

For a thousand years Christianity has owned the English lexicon, and they’ve used it to portray anyone who is not Christian as an evil bastard who’d kick a starving child or throw widows out of their homes. “Good” is equal to “Christian” in their parlance. If you are not Christian, you can not be good.

It’s moronic. The problem is, it works.

You will not get elected to any office of power in the USA without saying you are religious. If you are trying to do business anywhere south of the Mason-Dixon Line, you have to go to church. That’s where the deals are done. That’s where the networking is. Why? Because people only trust those they meet at church, simply because they say they are Christian.

Religions can show people that they’re being bastards, but it doesn’t prevent it. Regardless of religious affiliation, people are people and will do as they please. In the end, whether you are good or not has a lot more to do with who you are than the god you worship.

Virgin Births (an excerpt from The Heathen’s Guide to Christmas)

December 10, 2008

The Nativity

I wanted to give birth as opposed to being delivered.‘ ~ Ricki Lake

Let’s start with a little game of Virgin Birth. Here’s the way it works: find someone who’s pro-Christian/pro-Christmas. After assuring them that you’re not going to offend them with a bit of historical fact (lie) read the following bits out loud and ask them to guess who you’re talking about. You get one point for pissing them off, five points for being told you’re going to hell, and 25 points (and a mention on my website) if they actually haul off and hit you.

Here we go, Scenario One:

Attis
Born on December 25 to a virgin mother, this great man later sacrificed his life so he could save all humanity from eternal torment. He died at Easter of acute crucifixion, and descended for three days into the underworld. On Easter Sunday, he rose again. To commemorate this heroic story, his followers wore an image of him being crucified and he was symbolically eaten by his followers in the form of bread during services.

Answer: Attis, a Phrygian god from Asia Minor. If anyone said Jesus, point your finger, laugh, and sign yourself up for 5 points. That one was pretty obscure though. To be fair, let’s jump ahead a bit to the actual time of Jesus…

Scenario Two:

Dionysus
He was worshipped in Jerusalem in the 1st century. He was the Son of God. The Creator made his mother pregnant through mystic means and his flesh and blood were symbolically eaten in the form of bread and wine by his devotees to celebrate his birth on December 25. The guy’s into healing, saving your soul, and eternal love. Oh… and a star appeared above when he was born. Don’t forget to mention the star.

Answer: Dionysus, the son of Zeus. Dionysian worship was really big in Rome and all the territories that Rome controlled, including Israel/Judea.

Ok, let’s try this one on for size…

Scenario Three:

Osiris

A savior-god called the Lord of Lords, King of Kings, God of Gods. He is the Resurrection and the Life, the Good Shepherd, yadda yadda, (you get the idea). Three Wise Men announced his birth. His followers ate cakes of wheat that symbolized his body, and he was worshipped in Judea in the first century AD.

Answer: That one’s Osiris, the Egyptian God who was chopped into 14 pieces as a sacrifice for all humanity. The difference between his lore and Jesus’ is that when Osiris came back from the dead, when Isis helped him out, she couldn’t (or wouldn’t) find his penis. For this reason Osiris is generally portrayed as neutered. Rome had accepted Osiris into the Hall of Gods by the time of Jesus, and Osiris worship was an accepted practice under Rome’s Hellenism. (Hellenism, by the way, was kind of a syncratic mish-mash of all the gods into one religion. Syncratic, by the way, is just a big word for mish-mash.)

Ok… that’s three virgin births and three resurrections, and we’re still not up to the late great JC. Here comes my favorite…

Scenario Four:

Mithra
A guy born of a virgin on December 25 (popular day for virgin births, huh?). As an adult he casts out demons, cures people and walks on water. He was killed to save all humanity, came back from the dead, then ascended into heaven. He’ll come again to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.

The Answer: Mithra, the god of Mithraism (also associated with Zoroastrianism). It was from this religion that Christianity stole the bulk of its lore. Mithra was the Sol Invictus, or Unconquerable Sun. He did battle on behalf of humanity, died a martyr, and rose again. His story comes complete with 12 apostles, a Last Supper, the Wise Men and the Shepherds bit. His Godly Father, Ahura Mazda, was the One True God (except for that other pesky god he kept having trouble with.)

Ok, tally up your score and see how you did. If you’re bleeding or incapable of writing because you’ve just had your hands broken, don’t bother counting it all up. You win automatically.

The Myth of Good and Evil: From Hitler to Mother Teresa

December 8, 2008

These days, the archetypes of good and evil in our society are Mother Teresa and Hitler, respectively. If you start with these two as the paradigms, it becomes pretty easy to figure out what “Good” and Evil” are really all about.

I admit that I have never met Adolf Hitler. Fortunately for this blog post, however, I have met Mother Teresa. It was in Toronto, Canada back in ’84. She was giving a speech at Shea Stadium and I  (being the ‘good Catholic boy destined for priesthood’) was brought to Toronto to be introduced to a living saint.

The woman was a bitch to me.

I shook her hand and she sneered. I said a few words— basic niceties of some sort— and she just glowered at me. After about three seconds, she turned to the security people with her and said “Get rid of him.” They did.

I suspect I would have done better meeting Hitler.

Years later, I learned that Mother Teresa had a disdain for males. This information came to me as I read about the series of accusations leveled against Mother Teresa shortly before her death. It seems that many in India thought she was misappropriating the funds she had raised, using them to build more convents instead of feeding the poor.  She explained that this was her answer to the cruelty of the streets of Calcutta: The more girls there were in convents, the better things were on the streets.

The problem, of course, was that this policy prevented males, married couples, and any girl who did not want to be a nun from getting food or help. Many were pissed about it, and sought to have her relieved of her duties. The Church and the media basically rode out the accusations until she died, and whitewashed it all with a canonization.

Now, this doesn’t make her “evil” or anything, but it does show some normal, human fuckedupedness in this icon of ultra “Good”.

[I can just hear people out there thinking “He’s not going to try to defend Hitler now, is he?”]

Hitler was responsible for killing lots of Jews, and starting a World War. This makes it a tad hard to portray the man as “good”.  However, I’ve always been of the opinion that Hitler was really just a man of his times. Hear me out here…

Long before WWII, there were pogroms throughout Europe. (POGRAMS were mass killings, usually of Jews. See the WIKI.) The genocide of WWII was basically just another pogrom. This is why Hitler’s plan was called ‘The Final Solution’… other extermination plans had been tried before and failed.  The Nazis reasoned that only a large, coordinated pogrom could achieve the genocide they wanted. It was the ‘final solution’ in a series of attempts, not the stand-alone event that many see it as  today.

Here’s bit of little-known Hitler history for you:

In 1939, before his extermination of Jews began, 937 Jews got onto a boat (the S.S. St. Louis) and tried emigrate to anywhere that would accept them. These Jews, having a good idea of what returning to Europ meant, traveled to every port of call they could find, asking for refugee status. None of the allied countries (who were supposedly appalled by Hitler’s Final Solution) would accept a single Jew into their country. Every one of the 937 Jews on that boat were forced to return to Europe to face the concentration camps.

Follow this forward: During the war, German troops were stretched thin, the supplies were dwindling, and Germany still had hundreds of thousands of Jews in concentration camps that no other country would take off their hands. The Nazis couldn’t feed their own men, and they certainly couldn’t feed the hated Jews in the camps. This is why the corpses of the dead were found so malnourished… Hitler was unwilling to “waste” resources on the concentration camps when his own soldiers were starving in the field. When it came down to it, a prisoner in the camps had to show that they could contribute to the war effort, or they were killed.  The Nazi’s only other option was to keep them alive, but starving.

Is this evil incarnate? As I said, I’ve always seen Hitler as a man of his times. These Jews could easily have been granted refugee status in any of dozens of countries, but were rejected.

Still, when it was all over and the cameras moved into the death camps, the rest of the world was able to relieve their guilt by elevating the evil of Hitler. He was the madman. He hated and killed them all. He was the very essence of EVIL.

We, of course, were the good guys. We “saved the Jews”.  (Except for the millions who could have emigrated to the USA in 1939 but were flatly rejected.)

The point of all this is simple: Good and Evil are just monikers. Every icon has a story behind it. More often than not, the elevated status of saints and demons are created to make us feel the way we want to feel.   Mother Teresa is good and holy because she takes  our $10.00 donation and makes us feel better about poor starving children in India.  Hitler is ultimate evil because he exonerates our own guilt.  In Hitler’s case, his designation even allowed us to feel superior and heroic.

There is no ultimate evil in the world, any more than there is ultimate good. They’re just words we use to get over our own guilt, or to make ourselves look good.  People are people, some more fucked up than others, but all of us fall within that five percent deviation from the norm.

Beware anyone who tells you different.

Steamy Hot, Man-on-Man, Gay Islamic Sex

December 5, 2008

“When a man mounts another man, the throne of God shakes.” ~The Hadith.

(That sounds like a good motto for a Rainbow Church in San Francisco).

[Author's note: No, I'm not gay.  Just pissed at the Muslims.]

On Nov. 24, a reporter named Adel Hussein was sentenced to six months in jail by a court in Irbil, Iraq. His crime was ‘indecency’. Of course, this is an Islamic court, so their definition of ‘indecency’ is, by default, absolutely bugshit insane.

Case in point: Adel Hussein.

Adel is a doctor and journalist for the Hawlati news service in Iraq. Being a doctor, Adel wrote articles about health. In 2007, he wrote an article about Sexual Health. Part of this article included a detailed description of the physical effects of homosexual sex, particularly anal sex. (One immediately questions the logic of sending someone to prison for anal sex. It’s rather akin to locking up an alcoholic in a liquor store.)

“There are no gays in Iran. We do not have this phenomenon.
I don’t know who has told you that we have.”

~ President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Now, let there be no doubt here that Islam is unapologetic in it’s absolute, bigoted hatred of every gay or lesbian in existence. According to the faith, gays should all be killed  in horrible, twisted, sexual ways that would lead the witnesses to wonder about the predilections of the executioners. But I digress…

The thing is, Adel isn’t even gay. He just mentioned the fact that gay men exist, and that there was a medical opinion to be had about the effects of anal sex. Within Islam, though, this is heresy. “Gay” does not exist. Homosexual acts exist, for which the person should be punished. But there is no such thing as a person who, for whatever reason, prefers to have sex exclusively with persons of their own gender. Apparently the Islamic cable providers failed to secure The Ellen DeGeneres Show for their audience.

So, Adel’s crime was basically reporting on the sexual health of gay men that do not exist. Anal sex does not exist. Hot, steamy, Turkish baths full of naked, single men exist, but are entirely platonic.

This would all just be humorous if it were not for the fact that an estimated 400 men have been executed for being gay in Iran alone. Hundreds more are whipped, beaten, and publicly disgraced every year. I have no misguided belief that Islam will get over themselves any time soon. I don’t believe they’re going to stop believing that they and only they have the power and divine right to lead the world. But, reading the story of Adel Hussein, I just wish they’d learn to get over themselves enough to allow people to at least talk about the reality we live in instead of the fantasy world their religion provides.

Fortunately, here in the West, we are allowed the freedoms that Adel and others lack. Here ya go… knock yourselves out on Adel’s behalf:

How the Christian Right are paving the way for Militant Islam

December 4, 2008

You see it on bumper stickers every day: “Jesus is Lord”. “King of Kings”. “Lord of All.” Were people voting with their bumpers, Jesus would win by a landslide.

But when the American right speaks of religion in politics, they are referring to Christianity. When they fight for more religion in the courts and schools, they mean more of their religion..

But the time is coming when fundamental Islamic madrasahs are going to start popping up next to their Christian schools. A time when protesting Muslims, using the legal victories of the Christian right, will have Sharia Law enshrined in the courts next to the Ten Commandments.

What the evangelicals don’t get (and what will come back to bite them in a generation’s time) is that freedom for one means freedom for all. Every law they pass to allow more of their religion into the government will also allow every other religion in. There will come a day when Congress and kindergartners will have to break for Islamic prayer, whether they are Islamic or not.

In fact, anyone with a religion will be able to exert power over the status quo, begging the indulgence of school boards and State funds to make sure their religion is as respected and included under the law as Christianity. And yes, the hardcore anti-Western imams with their hate speech will, in time, be protected under the very freedoms that they are trying to destroy.

There’s nothing fanciful in this. It’s a direct cause-and-effect of the legal precedents that the Christian right are pursuing. Religious inclusion for one sect will be applied to all, and you can bet that the extremists are watching this very closely, allowing the Pentecostals and evangelicals to do the hard work for them.

It bears repeating: freedom of religion must also mean freedom from religion. Only by separating religion and government will we be able to maintain the objectivity and freedom that the West has enjoyed for so long.

Sex and Religion

December 2, 2008

I was raised a strict Roman Catholic, destined (many said) to become a priest. As such, I learned the basics of Catholic sexuality as taught in my parochial school:

• God hates sex, but loves babies.
• A woman’s virtue is sacred, and any attempt to stain it is a sin worthy of damnation.
• Good people die virgins and go to Heaven. Bad people have sex, get diseases, die young, and go to Hell.

When I was fourteen, I discovered that I was having a theological crisis over these tenets. Surprisingly, my problems didn’t arise from my newly-discovered interest in the girl’s gym class. It came from the iconography that I found on the walls of the church, where I would go to beg forgiveness for my thoughts about the girl’s gym class.

I noticed that in all the religious paintings, the people in Heaven wore robes, while all the people in Hell were naked. And, though my inexperienced mind couldn’t quite fathom the reason for it, I instinctively knew that the tortured expressions on the faces of the damned expressed some passionate emotion that I would not truly understand until years later in a sleazy hotel room in London.

But there they were… naked. Until puberty I had pretty much ignored the writhing figures of the damned, favoring instead the holy, sanctified beauty of the Madonna, or the pious figures of the saints we were to aspire to being. But from fourteen on, it was those souls in torment that held my attention.

For a while I thought that this strange draw I was feeling toward the “dark side” was a burgeoning evil that was slowly overtaking my soul. I confessed this to the priests, of course, who dutifully assigned me Hail Marys and Our Fathers (though in the years since I’ve shuttered to think what the priests did after hearing my confessions). None of this stopped the fascination though. Even as I sat in the pew reciting my penance, I would find my eyes drifting up to the scenes of Hellish torment, scared by arousal I found in them. It became a viscous circle: Sinful thoughts, confessions, prayer, more sinful thoughts, more confession, and more prayer. I was trapped.

It wasn’t until years later that I finally understood that my guilt and fear were exactly what the icons were intended to instill. In my post-Christian phase I’d wondered for a long while why such an anti-sex institution as the Catholic Church would propagate these dark, sexual images of Hell. Surely the laity was going to see them, and at least some deviants (like myself) would be drawn to them?

Herein lies one of the most important lessons I ever learned about religion: Control is more about guilt than punishment.

Look around any church of any creed or sect and you will see it: images of what you should never, ever do. I was lucky enough to have been raised in a church whose iconography involved naked, flailing breasts, but the same idea can be conveyed using greed, avarice, gluttony, or any of the other fun Saturday night activities. You show people what they really want, then make them feel guilty for actually wanting it. It’s a revolving door of guilt and coveting that always leaves the laity looking for relief from the guilt you’ve created in them.

It wasn’t until my break with religion was final that I was able to stop and assess my priorities, based on what I learned for myself was right and wrong for our society. When I did, though, the cycle of guilt and arousal were broken. Sex became a normal, natural part of my human existence, free of guilt and shame.

This freedom from guilt and shame only lasted until I spent that summer in Tijuana, but that’s a whole other story.

The Bully Cries Foul: Religion on the Ropes

November 30, 2008

The Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) —This week the OIC won United Nations backing for a draft resolution that would outlaw “defamation of religion” throughout the world.
(Read the whole ridiculous article here)

For thousands of years, religions have been saying that Humanity is evil. Because of our evil, we are told that a just and loving God is going to condemn us to Hell for all eternity. Only the “holy” people from their religions are going to go to “Heaven”. To get there, the advocates of religion never miss an opportunity to explain to the world what kind of slimy, cruel, and ugly creatures we are.

They call this human-bashing “ministry”.

In every mosque, church, and temple on Earth, people are educated against the evils of being human. Sex is evil. Gays are to be killed. Heretics should be burned. These are real-life, modern theologies that are preached every day in this modern world. Yet now, as education and awareness are growing (mainly thanks to the internet) these self-same anti-human bigots are at the UN begging for protection from the “defamation of religion”.

The world’s biggest bully, Religion, is now finally being confronted by a people who are starting to think for themselves. Their response? The bullies are trying to call the schoolyard teacher (the UN) to protect them.

It’s bullshit.

As long as any clergyman in any religion is willing to take to the pulpit and tell the world how scummy humans are, there needs to be protections for an equal and opposite point of view. That the OIC now wants the UN to protect them, while at the same time publicly condemning every Westerner for their evil and godless lifestyle, is as absurd as it is offensive.

I’ll go head-to-head with the claims of any religion. But I’ll be damned if I will stop criticizing the bullies because they’re finally getting a taste of their own medicine and can’t handle it. As far as I’m concerned, stories like this are a testament to the fact that we might now (finally) have these power-hungry, human-hating bigots on the run from their own accusations. Now is not the time to back off, shake hands, and be nice. Now is the time to hit harder, challenge every hateful word that comes out of their mouths, and hopefully put an end to their absurd attack on the human condition.
