21. No, belief in a sky daddy - ANY sky daddy - is the software here...

Any name or flavor can be the root cause - Yahweh, Jehovah, Allah .... Thor, Zeus, Apollo .... Ra, Krishna, Jupiter. Those who believe in the infallibility of their own doctrines, and especially infallible holy books, are a clear and present danger. This ludicrous interpretation of 'god' as an interacting, ethereal agent or all-seeing, all-knowing judgemental asshat is what fuels the sick minds of literalists and what finds comfort and acceptance from the weak-willed, fearful of mortality crowd that remain adherents to "the faith".

Anyone who interprets any flavor of these so-called holy books or religions as recommending death, for humans to mete out as a penalty under divine ordinance, for ANYTHING in the here and now, ostensibly to secure a place in eternity or 'save souls of the almighty', are not-so-cordially invited to FUCK RIGHT OFF ALREADY.

Anyone who shares those beliefs - in the name of any fictitious "lord", "god", or "prophet" - the blood on your hands today should remain with you as a stain on your life the rest of your days. Denounce those who carry a provably impossible literal reading of any holy book and commit acts of hate due to this madness, or sign your name in the blood they spill, on you own confession and atonement to the human race.

Silence IS consent.
Inaction IS abetting.
Non-reaction IS approval.

I am sick of people hiding behind a fairy tale to justify the monsters of humanity's darkest nature.

You either stand with those on the side of justice and equality, and yes TRUE FREEDOM (Freedom of religion INCLUDES the very necessary freedom FROM religion); or you stand with the literalists and fundamentalists as boils on the ass of humanity.

Period.
