Politics And Religion

In recent years I've noticed a disturbing trend. I seem to have fewer and fewer people that I interact with on a regular basis. Some friends and relatives that I've known since I was a kid no longer have any contact with me and others will still talk to me when we meet at some function, but they no longer contact me with e-mails or phone calls. The common denominator seems to be religion and because of religion their politics being Reich-WingNut. They probably think I'm a flaming librul, but in reality I just think government should do what's good for everybody not just a chosen few. Also I think there are some areas the government has no business in, like the ones the bible-bangers are pushing. (They believe in "small government", so small that it will fit in a woman's vagina!!)

What I find ironic is as some have gotten older they have gotten more and more religious. It's like one day they come to the conclusion that "I better change my ways and pray a lot or I'm going to HELL!!" I don't have that problem as I don't believe there is a heaven or hell. Like I told a co-worker once when he asked about something in heaven, "I don't believe there is a heaven. That's just something they came up with a couple thousand years ago to placate the slaves and peons. Sure your life sucks now, but when you die it'll be wonderful!!"

 The thing I don't understand is how those that claim to be the most christian are like Ghandi said, very un-christlike. It's like they don't even read their so-called "good book". I mean they are all for punishing the poor for being poor. And won't even entertain the idea of helping the poor because like animals they will become dependent on that help. WHAT FUCKING BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!!!!

Whenever they would send me an e-mail or post Reich-WingNut bullshit on facebook, I would comment with a rebuttal saying what an utter load of bullshit it really was. I guess they got tired of being corrected or they realized their argument didn't hold up.


  1. same here...friends and family that I love have turned into racial bigots..I don't know who to trust any more.

  2. You are not alone, brother. I have reduced my arguments against moronic emails from past "friends"and Facebook Storm Trolls, et al, to one word in reply...BULLSHIT...and I refuse to argue, or comment beyond that. So far it has exceeded all my expectations. The best part blood pressure spikes have diminished significantly.

  3. It is the same here. We had a nice home in Kentucky; but the religious zeal there was smothering. We have come up to Maine where the air is clearer - at least people don't get in your face about religion. The majority of people we meet go to some church, but we just don't ever breach the subject. As a results we have no close friends, only acquaintances.

    My best friend died a number of decades ago and I feel that his son is my little brother - closer than any actual kin; but he is married to a religious woman and both are right wing nutcases. I love the bugger despite this, but we can't spend any time with them because that difference is always just under the surface.

  4. Canadian elections and Syrian refugees have greatly reduced the number of people I will visit when I am next in Canada. Too many have turned out to be Teaparty Tories. No loss.
