The Whole “Died for Your Sins” Thing


The Christ Story is insanity defined.

God creates humanity AND sin.

God tells humans that they have free will.

God tells humans that if they exercise free will, he will kill them.

God kills them.

God allows one family to live. Gives ’em plans for an Ark. Says save some animals.

Later, God chooses a family from amongst the descendants of that family. He tells them that he will make them a great nation if they follow only him.

These Chosen as represented by Abraham make a pact with God whereby the males of the people will give up a piece of skin from their penis and follow a set of rules laid down then and later, a few more, given to Moses as they march out of enslavement to the Pharaoh.

[Isaac gets his plank shaved. Ishmael laughs. YHWH and Rebekah demand that Abe expel Ishmael for his impertinence. Islam is born.]

God gives them a land.

CAVEAT: These Chosen must actually go into that land and conquer it.

And, oh by the way, they must kill every man, woman and child…and the animals…or God will not be pleased. Because God is a merciful God.

OOPS! The Chosen let some live.

Later….the Israelites start to get down with Ba’al. God gets jealous.

He calls homosexuality an abomination. He calls fornication a sin. He makes all kinds of groovy new rules to keep his people from leaving him and getting down with the boogie in the Temple of Ba’al which is much more fun because you get to fuck while you worship.

Later on…God gets a case of the ass again and tells the Babylonians, Assyrians and an assortment of other Kingdoms to kick his Chosen people’s collective asses and enslave them, move them about, destroy their temples, etc…

Until finally, Rome comes onto the scene.

Big Bad Rome is used by God to continue the punishment of the Chosen.

Until finally, Jesus is conceived and born to a Virgin with whom God got down and impregnated.

Jesus is sent to cleanse not just the Chosen but the World of sin.

Now, before this God didn’t give a flying fuck about the world. He only cared about the Jews/Hebrews/Israelites.

Suddenly, though, God has looked around and realizes…FUCK, THERE’S A WHOLE BUNCH OF MOTHERFUCKERS OUT THERE!

I’d better come up with a plan for those fuckers as well.

So, he does.

Jesus gets to come on down. Be born. Live about 30 years on his own out of sight and out of mind until suddenly he comes pounding onto the scene on his White Ass.

Jesus defies the Roman-Hebrew rulers. Basically tells them that they’re doing it all wrong.

Tells a bunch of people to love one another and to live by his golden rule and to, you know, treat people how you’d like to be treated coz that old God of Jealousy, Rage, Genocide and Bigotry who had a Chosen has finally awakened to the knowledge that there are a whole lot of motherfuckers out there in the countryside wandering about not knowing what the hell, what the fuck or why the hell and why the fuck.

Jesus makes some wine. He feeds a bunch of folks bread and fish. He gets all ornery in the Temple. He does or does not get his funky groove on with another Mary who is of Magdala and who may have been a rich widower as well as his wife or might have been a prostitute. Depends on who tells the story.

So, YHWH…the Alpha and the Omega…the Omniscient God sent himself down as his own son or maybe sent down his Son to represent him…who the fuck knows…

And this Son-God is tasked with dying for the Sins of all of Humanity. Not just the Jews or Hebrews or Israelites or Judeaens or what the fuck ever they want to be called. But no one knows this until Saul/Paul comes onto the scene a decade or so after the crucifixion, resurrection and ascension.

He came to Earth to be worshipped, to teach, to be rejected, to be betrayed, to be tried in a Kangaroo Court of Romish-Jewish nature, to be tortured, to be walked around with a cross/pole on his back and to be hung on said  cross/pole until his ass was dead.

All so that he could arise. So that he could be resurrected. So that he can be alive. So that he could be seen by a select CHOSEN few who would then be tasked to carry the Good News Gospel that he, Ieshua/Jesus/The Messiah is Risen and Alive to all of the world.

And then.

Jesus/Ieshua disappears.

Until many years later…when he becomes a fucking Muslim and raps with Mohammed on a Midnight Ride.

But sometime  before that, God changes his mind again. He’s no longer the Peace God. He’s no longer all about Love and Forgiveness. He tells a Roman named Constantine to Go Forth and Conquer in his name. And so Constantine does. And so, the Holy Roman Church is born and goes on to conquer, colonize, rape, pillage and generally commit mayhem across Europe, the Middle East and then the Globe.

And now the sons of the followers of Jesus, Constantine, Abraham, Israel, Isaac, Ishmael and Mohammad have arrived at the present. Each declaring themselves the truth. Each willing to kill in the name of their Religion of Peace to prove that theirs is the One True Faith.

God is one sick bastard.


Was Jesus “the Way” and the only Way (path) to Heaven (the father)?


He told a truth. Not the only truth.

However, the Christian Church misunderstood and bastardized that truth. Jesus was talking about his message of Faith, Hope and Love. That is the path. Criminals and despots took that message and warped it. Thus, it became Jesus himself who was the way and the door to eternity.

Live a life of love and the GoDs will adore you. Heaven will be yours. The religion does not matter.

The Least of Me and the “Christian Nation”





The Good SamaritanI am the first to admit that I am extremely negative and distrustful of Christianity.  My opinion is that modern Christianity is so unlike Christ as to be THE Anti-Christ.  This is especially so of Modern American Evangelical Christianity (MAEC).  MAEC has become so politicized as to have lost it’s moral compass.  Certainly, there are good Christians out there who observe the message of Christ and who live a Christ-like life.  However, too many of them subscribe to the “all fall short” mentality and allow that to excuse hateful behavior towards their fellow man.

Christian capitalist are the perfect example of this.  Modern American Capitalism is rarely based on giving the best product for the best price.  It certainly is not set upon the value of excellence or good behavior towards one’s fellow man.  Corporate CEOs are nothing but bottom line vultures.  They wish to pay the lowest wage possible for the most work squeezed out of wage slaves.  They wish for nothing more than a labor force so dependent upon wages that little choice is left but to work for corporations that destroy the planet in the name of higher stock prices at the expense of all else.

Christians political support of the Drug War is indecent and not supported by any passage or message in either the Old or New Testament.  Much in the history of religion actually points to support of drug use.  At least for the Judges and early leaders of Judaism and the Church.  Drug imagery and “secret” messages encoded in the Bible point to the use of mushrooms and hashish by the likes of Moses and Aaron (smoking tents and whatnot).  The Bible does not encourage forcing people to be good Christians or followers of secular law.  If anything, the Life of Christ is an example of civil disobedience to civil law.  Jesus was crucified for that very act.

I was told today that “breaking the law constitutes criminality.”  If that is the case, biblical leaders are a long line of criminals.  Abraham, Moses, Daniel and Jesus were infamous for their refusal to obey unjust laws.

Not only that but America is built upon a tradition of civil disobedience.  If breaking the law makes one a criminal, every “Christian” founder of our nation were criminals.  I begin to see that criminality against the State is not only NOT bad but essentially wholly good for the soul and intellect.  It is a calling for true Americans and true Christians alike.

Jesus admonished the people of the Earth to “love thy neighbor” and to “love the least of me as you would me.”  I view the world through that lens.  I try to live those words.  Of course, there are people whom I cannot stand and would love to punch in the face.  That said, along the path of my life, I try to help those less fortunate, less intelligent, less motivated, less informed and less loved than I.  For I am fortunate.  I believe myself intelligent.  I am nearly always  motivated.  (I just ran a six minute mile.  ; ) )  I am fairly well informed as I read constantly and study often.  I also attempt to reflect upon that which I learn in my reading and study.  And above all, I am fortunate enough to be loved by many.

With that in mind, I tend to view issues such as the “sanctity of marriage,” immigration, war, the drug war, terrorism and “nation building” through the lens of these “Golden rule” wisdoms.  The Golden Rule is omni-present in cultures throughout the ages and across breadth and length of this globe.  All great civilizations have some form of the Golden Rule.  Treat others as you would wish for them to treat you.  What could be simpler.  Yet it seems so difficult for humanity.

We have millions of immigrants showing up at or borders right now.  Many conservative Christians would throw them out with little thought to consequences and with a blind eye towards the message of Christ.  Would Christ suffer the little children of immigrants to be thrust back into poverty and desolation?  Would Christ abandon these people?  Are our actions and attitudes towards our Southern neighbors one of loving our neighbor?  I think not.  We would abandon these people.  We would not follow the example of the parable of the man from Samaria.

 “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

36 “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

Go and do likewise.  America should be a good neighbor.  We have not been a good neighbor.  Our policies have led directly to the situation which has placed these peoples on our borders.  Our banks rape and pillage to the South and we blame the victims for their plight.

The sanctity of marriage is a farce.  Millions of Christians who purport to believe in the “sanctity of marriage” have been divorced.  Some of them have been divorced several times.  Yet, they believe marriage to be so sacred that homosexuals, lesbians and others should be denied the right to have their marriages recognized by the State.  My first response to this is that State recognition of a marriage has nothing to do with God or sanctity.  The State sanctifies home invasion and murder in the name of the Wars on Terror and Drugs.  The State is run by politicians who have proven time and again to be ungodly.  Iniquity runs rampant in the green and black blood that oozes through it’s deadly veins.  Yet, somehow Christians believe that State recognition will somehow affect the “sanctity” of their second and third marriages.

I see hypocrisy here.

Hypocrisy is nowhere in the message of Christ.  Christ admonished us to love.  Not to segregate based on our own base prejudices.

This is where I differentiate myself from the MAEC.

I try to live my life with the admonishment to love my neighbor and to not see others as lessor than me.  This is one reason that I love my girlfriend, Unny.  She reminds me to be nice and to see the world around me through loving eyes and a purer soul.  She lives to help others and her art is a reminder to me that helping others see beauty and wonder in everything around is as close to the divine as I will every travel.

This is one reason that I love working in Afghanistan.  Aside from the pay, I get to help people.  I teach, mentor and advise.  I watch young people making their way through life and making hard choices.  At times, I see nothing but cruelty and ignorance around me.  However, there are moments when I see the light in a young persons eyes.  There are times when I can help and when that help makes a difference.  These moments are priceless to me.

If Jesus wished for us to love our neighbors as we loved him, should we not take a step back as a nation and re-evaluate our policies in the drug war, in our dealings with other nations, in our support of despots and in our treatment of our South American neighbors.  Should we not be good Samaritans.

If we don’t, can we truly call ourselves a Christian nation.

As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men. (Galatians 6:10)

Religion Hates Me! How Can I Respect That?




I    do not understand “respect” for an archaic vision of hatred. That, to me, is the essence of religion. Religion separates humanity. It categorizes and labels. It creates “the other.” Oftentimes, or more realistically, most often it prejudices it’s adherents AGAINST the other.

Religion unifies one part against the other. It divides.

Certainly, it unifies. However, it does so in a negative manner.

Religion says; “We are this and you are that. AND THAT is an abomination. THAT is wrong.”

What is good about that? What can I find to respect about that?

What if religion were to say; “We are all one. We are different but we are all part of the same whole. It is ok that you are different. We can find common ground and live peaceably and honorably.”

Religion does not do this. Religion names the other sinner, infidel, heathen, savage, heretic, unbeliever, abomination. Religion dehumanizes and allows it’s adherents to think of the lives of all others as unworthy. Unless “the other” converts, submits, reverts or otherwise becomes a part of that religion.

Religion is false. It is simply a means of falsely dividing the people of the earth and controlling that subset in accordance with the whims of “the GoD” of their leader.

Religion keeps us divided.

Religion is false.

Why would I respect that? What earthly reason do I have to respect the religion of the crusades, of jihad, of honor killings, of genocide. This notion that we should respect the beliefs of others is insanity.

No person who truly believes in Islam or Christianity can be tolerant or accepting of other religions or of persons who do not “believe.” Inherent in the beliefs of those two specific religions is the law, judgment, understanding that those who do not believe are going to a hell or will be punished for living their lives outside as a non-believer. There is no real tolerance and can be no real acceptance of others for those who truly believe in the writings of the Bible or the Qu’ran.

To a true believer, you are as good as judged by their GoD. You are unworthy. You are infidel. You are perpetual outsider with no hope of redemption or salvation UNLESS you become one of them…unless you join their FAITH.

And, like the song by Queen, there can be only one.

The two cannot coexist in any true sense. To believe one is to believe the other false. To be one is to believe that the other is not fully human…not worthy of “everlasting life.”


Inherent in the beliefs of those two religions is a disrespect for all other living creatures who dwell upon this planet. You are unclean. You are infidel. You are heathen. You are savage. You are abominable. That IS the belief.

Am I supposed to respect that fundamental hatred of who I am?




Jesus, Christianity and Slavery

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. (Ephesians 6:5 NLT)

Jesus approved of Slavery or, at the very least, did not disapprove of it. Mankind has since decided that Slavery was immoral.

How can Jesus have been perfect if he believed in the morality of slavery?

Christians will jump through hoops to rationalize this. If Jesus were perfect AND the Alpha and Omega, the “man of his times” defense doesn’t work.

Here are passages from the New Testament:

The servant will be severely punished, for though he knew his duty, he refused to do it. “But people who are not aware that they are doing wrong will be punished only lightly. Much is required from those to whom much is given, and much more is required from those to whom much more is given.” (Luke 12:47-48 NLT)

Jesus, here, appears to be approving of beating slaves for disobedience. Not only did he approve of the practive of human ownership, he believes that beating them is a fair practice.

Below, the Bible actually gives rules to slave ownership:

If you buy a Hebrew slave, he is to serve for only six years. Set him free in the seventh year, and he will owe you nothing for his freedom. If he was single when he became your slave and then married afterward, only he will go free in the seventh year. But if he was married before he became a slave, then his wife will be freed with him. If his master gave him a wife while he was a slave, and they had sons or daughters, then the man will be free in the seventh year, but his wife and children will still belong to his master. But the slave may plainly declare, ‘I love my master, my wife, and my children. I would rather not go free.’ If he does this, his master must present him before God. Then his master must take him to the door and publicly pierce his ear with an awl. After that, the slave will belong to his master forever. (Exodus 21:2-6 NLT)

And here, the Bible speaks approvingly of sex slaves:

When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl’s owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment. (Exodus 21:7-11 NLT)

AND it’s all good as long as the Master feeds, clothes and sexes ’em up!

This is basically tacit approval of prostitution and sex slavery.

When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished.  If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property.  (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB)


Only if the slave dies is beating punishable by God.  Otherwise, the Bible condones the beating of slaves.



Piss on Jesus? Why Not Piss on Mohammad, too?

After all, it’s just a joke.  Right?

Political Cartoon by Eric Allie

Comedian Larry David is under attack from critics who say he pushed the mocking of religion and Christian belief in miracles over the edge in the latest episode of his HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” which the cable network defended as “playful.”

On the show’s most recent installment, which aired Sunday, David urinates on a painting of Jesus Christ, causing a woman to believe the painting depicts Jesus crying.

Deal Hudson, author and publisher of, said he doesn’t find any humor in the episode.

“I don’t think it’s funny,” Hudson told “Why is it that people are allowed to publicly show that level of disrespect for Christian symbols? If the same thing was done to a symbol of any other religions — Jewish or Muslim — there’d be a huge outcry. It’s simply not a level playing field.”

Hudson said an apology from the show’s producers and writing team should be issued.

“Somebody should [apologize],” Hudson said. “When is it going to stop? When is common sense going to dictate that people realize this willingness of artists to do to Christianity what they would never do to Judaism or Islam?”

In a statement to, HBO downplayed the controversy.

“Anyone who follows Curb Your Enthusiasm knows that the show is full of parody and satire,” the statement read. “Larry David makes fun of everyone, most especially himself.  The humor is always playful and certainly never malicious.”

Liberals are a funny lot.  Liberals are a cowardly lot.

Sacrilege is fine when it brings with it no dangers.  They’ll piss on the image of Christ.  They’ll display a Bible in a jar of urine.  The average liberal will blaspheme Christians and Christianity to hell and back.  They know that there is no danger in these acts.  Most Christians will have become morally outraged.  They’ll be angry, offended, disgusted by these Liberal behaviors.

But they won’t riot or murder over it.

Of course, you have random murders of Abortion Doctors committed by a random Christian every decade or so.  And the Liberal will be quick to point this out as if in comparison to the Islamic Extremists who commit atrocious acts of murder such as Al Jazeera beheadings.

Take that same urine or even the rumor of urine being placed on or near a Qu’ran and Liberals will run amok with declarations of intolerance by the Christian community.

Why is it acceptable for Secularist Liberals to piss on the Bible and call it critical humor, yet, it is not acceptable to do the same with the holy books or personages of other religions such as Islam.

Is Jesus not as sacred to Christians as Mohammad is sacred to Muslims?

Mass riots were justified by the left as a rational response to cartoons of Mohammad in Denmark.  Yet, Christians are irrational if/when their beliefs are demeaned by that same Secular Left.

I’d love to hear the rationalization on that one by the Secular Multi-culturists.  Speaking of Culture.  Is Christianity not a part of the CULTURE of the West.  Why is it the Christian Religion not afforded the same respect as Islam in these matters.  Piss on the Qu’ran.  Bad.  No matter the circumstances.  Piss on the Bible.  “It’s a joke.  Sarcasm.  Critical humor.”  Portray Mohammad in cartoons depicting him with a bomb for a turban.  Bad.  Never mind the fact that Muslims worldwide have grafted this image into the mainstream consciousness.  Never mind the fact that there is no place on the planet wherein Muslims live peacefully side by side with non-Muslim neighbors.  Piss on a Picture of Jesus or caricature Jesus in a cartoon.  “It’s just a joke.”

The Secular Left are cowardly hypocrites on the subject of religion.  Period.

I grow tired of it.

Multi-cultural, they wish to call themselves.  I call them what they are.  Christian haters.

For the record, I’m not Christian.  I shed that belief ages ago.  That doesn’t mean that I can’t see hypocrisy when it is plainly evident.

Maybe Christians should start rioting in the streets and murdering artists for portraying their religious symbols inappropriately.  Apparently, that’s the only way that the average Secularist will respect your beliefs.

I dare say that not one of the cowards would piss on a picture of Christ if  he, afterwards, had to fear for his safety or life.

Try pissing on a picture of Mohammad on TV, Larry David.  Hell, just try showing a picture of Mohammad on TV.  I’d love to see Larry David defend that one as “playful” as a mob of angry Muslims beat him and threw rocks at him.  I’d love to witness his attempt to explain to the murderers of Van Gogh in Sweden as they wielded a knife in anticipation of gutting the infidel.  I’m sure they’d listen to him closely.  I’m sure the extremist elements of Islam would love to murder an infidel and a Jew.  Two birds with one stone and all.

Cowards and hypocrites all.

Christians need to stop whining over these things and take up arms against them.  Defend your ideals.  I’m not necessarily talking about violence or shooting.  There are other ways of dealing with this hypocrisy.  Just stop the incessant whining.

Larry David should test his comic theories on Muslims in America.  Piss on a picture of Mohammad.  Claim it was merely being “playful.”  When he and his fellow hypocrites start using the same standard for Muslims as for Christians, they’ll have a point.  Until then, they’re merely typical leftists bigots.
