Time to Gut This One Out

I think I know why liberals have fared poorly in match-ups with Republicans lately. I believe that liberals are inherently better human beings than conservatives, and they tend to come up queasy during the last sickening weeks of a political campaign. That's the main reason for recent defeats, other than the vote-rigging. While conservatives delight in their hero Rush Limbaugh going after Michael J. Fox, the rest of us are actually appalled into stunned silence. The urge to disengage from this process is powerful. It is not going to be easy to stomach these last couple of weeks before the election, but stomach them we must.

After all, the religious right manages to keep focused even though their misguided antics have helped set the laws of this country back to Europe in the 13th century. Ahh, religion. It's the ultimate scam. All a low-life loser like John Ashcroft has to do is announce he's a fundamental Christian and the conservative base flocks to his side. Meanwhile if he had been allowed to have just one slow dance with a girl in high school, he might have turned out less weird and America would have benefited immensely.

What the religious right has wrought in the name of morality would make Jesus weep tears of blood. Torture, preemptive wars, and an open assault on the poor in favor of the mega-rich? Be proud. If your cherished religious beliefs even come close to being true, you will be holding all future meetings of the modern GOP in hell where it belongs. Do you get it? You are the worst enemy America has ever had. All our other enemies made us just believe more strongly in the ideals that made America great. But you insidious holy rollers have helped destroy America from within, giving unlimited power to a man who shouldn't be allowed to ride a bicycle without a helmet on his ass, for that is where his head resides.

Isn't it disgusting to see the level of caring about Iraq suddenly climb to such heights with the Bush crowd? The burns and the amputations and the deaths from IEDs were okay early on when they were helping keep the Bushies in power. Now it appears they are hurting the cause and may actually threaten Republican control of Congress. Ahh, the anguish! The President even gave two press conferences in as many weeks to try and spin the unspinable and defend the indefensible.

Let's review Iraq, just in case you're still throbbing with joy after hearing your Republican Messiah explain that he never meant "stay the course" to mean "stay the course", or whatever jive you're buying off this corrupt moron this week. Iraq was based on three things: Lies, Lies about the Lies, and Lies about the Lies about the Lies. The fact that this President and his pretend Daddy Cheney aren't sitting in a federal prison by now is a mark of shame on this country. Hopefully, the system will work and one branch of government will return to being the checks and balances that have gone so out of control lately. If that happens, it will be a great day. If that doesn't happen it will be because of voter fraud. These poll numbers are looking too decisive for the House to stay Republican. I believe it would take a major crime for that to happen, but major crimes are what this administration is all about.

It's up to the progressive liberals - the people who can see the inherent twisted meanness in sick weirdoes like Rumsfeld and Limbaugh - to hang in there for a couple of more weeks. It is disgusting to watch these GOP monsters release their toxic spew. It is downright nauseating, but it is necessary to endure it and not walk away, despite what your superior goodness tells you to do. Remember, history has shown that even the vilest of criminal enterprises eventually crumble and fall, and with any luck, the same will be true for the Bush administration.

I second that. Religion as a scam and the current batch of Republicans scamming us, debunked in one post. Great job.

Hello Bill and all,

The time has arrived for those blinded by religion to open their eyes, see the light, and help me vanquish the sword they have been deceived into supporting and wielding. How can Judeo-Christians blindly support rich and powerful leaders who rule using great wealth, deception, war, destruction, torture, and injustice when the messiah is supposed to deliver truth, wisdom, and justice, vanquish the sword, and dethrone the unjust, rich, and powerful? What is wrong with this picture?

No leader of an empire ever truly believes the religions used to manipulate subjects. That would be like a drug dealer hooked on his product; its bad for business...

Understanding why religion is strong delusion

Christians often quote things like "know them by their fruits," yet after millennia of being duped into abetting blatantly evil scoundrels, many still don't understand the meaning or import of much of what they read. The same canon paradoxically propounds "faith," which means the complete opposite of "know them by their fruits," i.e., to discern the truth by analyzing deeds and results (works) and to weigh actions instead of merely believing what is said.

The deceptive circular logic of posing a fantasy messiah who urges both discernment of the truth and faith (belief without proof) clearly represents a skillful and purposeful effort to impose ignorance and confusion through "strong delusion." Any sage worth his salt could understand the folly of this contradictory so-called wisdom. This and mountains of evidence demonstrate that faith and religion are the opposite of truth and wisdom. It is no wonder charlatans like Rove, Bush, and others have marked Christians as dupes to be milked as long and as hard as possible. Any accomplished con artist easily recognizes religion as the ultimate scam and fervent followers as ready-made marks and dupes.

We now live in an era where science has proven so much about the vastness, rationality, mathematical preciseness, and structural orderliness throughout every level of our 11-dimension universe. Nonetheless, large percentages of people still conclude that these flawed and contradictory religious canons are the unmodified and infallible "word of God." People who can't (or won't) discern the difference between truth and belief are easily misled about the differences between good and evil, wisdom and folly, perfection and error, reason and irrationality, and right and wrong.

The fact that political leaders have always had close relationships with religious leaders while cooperating to manipulate followers to gain wealth and power is overwhelming evidence that the true purpose of religion is deception and delusion. People who are unable to effectively discern basic moral choices or to reason accurately are easily indoctrinated to follow the dictates of national and imperial leaders who wrap themselves in religious pretense. Truth and wisdom are direct threats to the existence and power of empires. That is why imperial leaders always strive to hide so-called secret knowledge and impose deception and ignorance upon their subjects.

What then is the purpose of "faith" but to prevent otherwise good people from seeking to understand truth and wisdom?
