In God We Trust
I just finished watching Alexandra Pelosi's HBO special Right America Feeling Wronged.
It was a documentary by Nancy Pelosi's daughter about the people that wanted John Mccain to become the 44th King of America, instead of the Black Guy we all know won.
It followed The "straight talk express" around during the campaign to find out how people felt.
Well, I think that if they would have followed Obama's tour bus around they would have gotten pretty much the same kind of fanatics. Both sides wanted their guy to win, but we all know that there can be only one winner. If Obama would have lost, it would have been people crying in the streets and hollering conspiracy just like it was with Mccain's followers.
There was nothing surprising to me about hearing some White people say they would never vote for a Nigger.
What got me was all the people that was throwing religion around like God is actually interested in American politics.
'God wants Mccain to win.' 'Obama is a Muslim.' 'We are God fearing Christians.'
'This is a Christian Nation'. 'Jesus is on the side of right'.
Hearing those bible thumping freaks talk like they sit down at the dinner table with Jesus every night, scared the hell out of me.
These are the same people that see nothing wrong with condemning an entire religion (Islam), and it's followers, because of a certain group of crazy fanatics that represent only a small percentage of that religion.
This is why I do not like organized religion. These people sounded like brain washed zombies to me.
I would bet my next paycheck that if you were to ask any one of those people to quote one verse out of the Bible, they could not do it.
In my opinion organized religion has done more harm in the world than anything I can begin to think of.
Most wars are started behind religion.
Most of the hatred in the world is started because of religion.
There are women being killed and treated like second class citizens behind religion.
Some countries base their whole existence behind a religion.
And the funny thing is, all religions basically started from the same source.
So which religion is the true religion?
What makes one religion better than another religion?
Just because I call my God JEHOVA, and you call yours BUDDHA, ALAH, YA WEY or even Mr. Frosty, my religion is the true way to heaven?
Give me a fucking break!!
I believe God is in every one of us.
I do not need to belong to a Church to be favored in God's eyes.
I don't need to go and "confess" my sins to another man, who by the way is a sinner just like me.
I don't need to hear some preacher get on a stage in a &3000 suit and yell at me to give the Church 10% of my hard earned money so I can reap the benefits of God's kindness.
I can read the bible on my own.
I know the difference between what's right and what's wrong.
And I learned this by thinking and asking questions. I learned that I do not need religion to be be blessed by my God. I learned all this by reading about religion and finding out for myself what the word religion really means.
I do go to a Church occasionally, but I am not a member of any Church.
I do not belong to nan religion because I feel like I don't need to.
I know who my God is....
But the question is, what God do those people in the documentary that I talked about believe in?
And whoever they bow down to at night, why would he/she give a damn about American Politics?
Does it not say in the Bible that man made Kingdoms will not last?
So why would their God want his followers to pray for a man made kingdom?
Do ya think they could answer that?
