Organized Religion: A Tool for Ignorance, Power and Control

I think anyone who follows me even somewhat regularly knows that I’m a Christian. I know that’s not always a popular thing to be as a liberal, but it’s a fact nonetheless. That being said, I detest organized religion.

What “religion” is to me is a human-made concoction meant to promote the personal views of some while degrading the views of others.

Honestly the only reason I call myself a “Christian” is because it’s easier than saying, “I believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ and the values for which he stood. That being said, I oppose most things that have been written in the Bible as it is clear that much of the text has been influenced by the personal views of those in charge of translating the text through time.”

I’ve talked “religion” with Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, Jews, Atheists (yes I consider Atheism a form of religion) and it’s amazing how personally we’re all pretty much the same. Our core values as human beings are basically identical. Things like being a good person, helping the helpless and defending the defenseless. Generally just being good people.

And isn’t that what life is about? Isn’t that what we should all strive to be as humans?

Why is it so many care so much about the personal religious views of others? If everyone kept their beliefs private (as they should be), practiced them in the appropriate places and didn’t judge others who believed differently – can you imagine how much more peaceful the world would be? More

Covert chemical warfare: 100,000 deaths a year

Medical News Today reports that, in 2011, there was a modest uptick in the number of prescriptions written in the US.

The increase brought the total to: 4.02 billion.

Yes, in 2011, doctors wrote 4.02 billion prescriptions for drugs in America.

That’s an average of roughly 13 prescriptions for each man, woman, and child.

That’s about one new prescription every month for every American.

The Medical News Today article concluded, “…the industry should be heartened by the growth of the number of prescriptions and spending.” Yes, I’m sure the drug industry is popping champagne corks.

We’re talking about prescriptions here. We’re not talking about the number of pills Americans took. We’re also not counting over-the-counter drugs or vaccine shots.

Pharmacopoeia, a 2011 exhibition at the British Museum, estimated that “the average number of pills a person takes in his or her own lifetime in the UK is 14,000.” That’s as a result of prescriptions. Including over-the-counter drugs, the 14,000 number would swell to 40,000 pills taken in a lifetime.

What are the effects of all these drugs?

So, let me see………we can test deadly vaccines on them by force, expose them to burn pits, douse them with agent orange and depleted uranium, contaminate the water they drink, build bases on top of toxic dump sites and never tell them they are being steadily poisoned…..but they have to be careful about marijuana????  We can send them into illegal wars of aggression where they can be severely injured or killed and then bring them home and do everything we can to make sure they either get a, 

a) no access to VA benefits and care or,

b) subject them to more deadly vaccines, psychotropic drugs in massive doses

c) if all else fails, use electroshock on them to subdue them and shut them up.

Have I got all of this right?  Just want to make sure I understand that weed is far more dangerous (sarc) than what has been done by the government and military to our veterans or what we plan to do to them under the label of “care”.

What Did You do During the Dirty Wars, Daddy?

“Most German Christians saw no contradiction between the demands of Jesus’ gospel ethic of love, mercy and forgiveness and the ruthless and cruel “gods” of war and wealth – and their pastors didn’t either.”

“What Did You Do During The War, Daddy?” was the title of a wonderful but sobering book written by Sabine Reichel. Reichel was born in 1946 to Nazi collaborator parents in bombed-out Hamburg, Germany in 1946. Her parents had been upper class citizens prior to the war and they managed to maintain their respectability after the war. Her mother and father, like so many other obedient “good” Germans of the Nazi-era never talked to their child about what they had done during the Hitler years. The unwelcome truth only came out much later, during Reichel’s early adult years. The book details her experiences in trying to obtain the answers to the book’s title question.

“What did you do during the war, daddy” has been a dreaded question for many soldier-fathers (as well as for some civilian parents) who collaborated (actively or passively) with warmongers in times of war, and 10003953_10152109057028863_611290400_nwho then discovered, too late, that they had been on the ethically wrong side of what turned out to be an unjust war – a war that might have been contrary to what they had been told, a war of aggression or corporate resource exploitation and therefore a war that was an international war crime, a crime against humanity or a crime against the peace.

And whether or not they had been deceived by their corporate-controlled governments and media outlets (shadow or otherwise) about the realities of those wars, any parent will dread being asked probing questions such as these: More

START TREATY: RINO REPUBLICANS ARE SURRENDERING OUR NATIONAL SECURITY LIKE THE COWARDS THEY ARE!

New START is simply not adequately verifiable. Lest assurances that the treaty will be “effectively” verifiable obscure that reality, the truth is that the Russians could engage in militarily significant violations with little fear of detection by the United States

________________________________________

LNO:What the hell are our elected Senators doing? Why are they rushing forward with the START treaty without a full debate on the ramifications of this treaty and the threat to our national security from communist Russia that it poses.

Where are the really tough American men and women that we need in both houses of congress to defend our country’s liberties, Freedoms and national sovereignty?

I for one am getting very tired of Metrosexual Socialist Democrats and RINO Republicans who sell out the American people every chance they get. I want my President, my two Senators and my Congress person to be real tough Americans, who will look out for my interests and those of my fellow American citizens, not illegal aliens, crooked banksters, special interest groups or foreign governments.

Is Obama a Congenital Liar & Sadistic Torturer, or Just a Man Caught in a Job Much Too Big for Him?

The rudest awakening to the real Obama may be his continuance and advancement of the heinous torture policies of his demonic predecessor, George Bush – The Lesser.

I could only be called semi-handsome … in a dim light … at 20 feet … while taking a shower, many years ago. 

Good looks may not be everything, but they can give one a head start in life. But, paraphrasing Mark Twain, “God must love plain looking (ugly) people as he made so many of us.” And, I’d rather be loved by God than look like a young Sean Connery, or how Cary Grant looked at any age.

Still, next life time, I’d like to have a six foot, four inch tall body, with muscular, well-shaped limbs, a fabulous throwing arm, jet-black hair (that later turns to a steel gray), piercing blue eyes, weighing in at a slim 235 pounds, all top off with a kill-her smile. I’m talkin’ tall, dark, and devastating. No more Willie Nelson looks for me, unless I can sing and write music like he can.

If God will give me such looks, I promise to try to win his love, in spite of my gorgeousness. Which reminds me of another good-looking chap, who needs to work over-time to win God’s love: Barack Hussein Obama, once known as Barry Soetero. 

Why the name change Mr. Obama? Anybody know?

Not long ago Obama, a relatively unknown African-American, was being sheep-dipped (gaining a new identity, to build creditability) as a Constitutional Law professor (when he – by rights – should have been studying our Constitution) at the very highly regarded University of Chicago School of Law, while he doubled as an Illinois state legislator.

And even though flextime Professor Barack Obama had produced no original scholarship papers on US Constitutional Law, he was offered a tenured position at the lofty Chicago School of Law. But oddly enough, hard working Professor Obama refused tenure, as he must have known he was on a much faster greased track to something much bigger … if … he could only improve his poor teleprompter reading skills of what others wrote for him.

And, Mr. Soetero … er… Mr. Obama applied himself to his trade, which was not statesmanship, but neuro-linquistics. And in time, Obama’s teleprompter reading coaches perfected with their student a slow rhythmic flow of spoken words, broken up with many “uhs,” with the same measured cadence as the words appeared on his teleprompter screens. 

Then strangely, in an unprecedented move, the Democratic Party kingmakers gave lowly state Senator Obama a national stage, when allowing him to display his reading cadence at their presidential nominating convention of 2004.

And even more amazingly, the following year, Barack became a United States senator. Then unbelievably, three years later, Mr. Obama became president and commander-in-chief of the most militarily equipped nation on Earth, without ever serving a day in any military. And, unless one is extremely naive, they know that some powerful interests, made Mr. Obama into Mr. President, and then into the President of Broken Promises.   More
