FK – God made ‘good’ and ‘evil’ thus ‘god’ cannot be good. He can only be the wagering asshole described in the Book of Job.
I’m so sick of this insanity. If someone is raping me of course it’s my ‘opinion’ that the action is ‘wrong.’ If someone steals my property it’s my ‘opinion’ that they shouldn’t do that. What utter absolute bullshit.
Without your ‘god’ threatening, like an ancient tyrannical king, to torture and/or kill those who disobey it’s edicts, including what it allegedly told the ancient Hebrews, “Go over the hill and kill all the pagans and don’t bring back so much as a goat or a sack of wheat(because we want their land and need a ‘moral’ excuse to steal it, like the victors in our not-so civil war turned their 600,000+ dead into martyrs for ‘freeing the slaves’), or if you decide to afterwards you can keep their virgins for your harems or whatever,” then your religion has no basis.
That’s your ‘moral relativism’ right there, along with the time Jesus cursed a tree or bush or whatever it was and chased the Jewish banksters out of ‘his’ temple.
Good grief. Southern preachers used the same ancient tribal propaganda to justify slavery and admonished ‘believers’ to be ‘good servants.’ Just as nowadays they tell their brain dead flocks, modern slaves, to pay their taxes, obey those appointed over them and sit on their asses waiting for the world to end because they’re gonna get beamed up soon. What a sick joke. What a lie. Religion is the same thing it always was – a control device.
For millennia the ‘politically correct’ definition of religious liberty was blind obedience to a king or a pope, god’s ‘representatives’ on Earth. The idea of ‘right and wrong’ evolved and changed with the times and political necessity regardless of the pretense ‘believers’ apply/ied to the ancient tribal propaganda. That won’t change.
“Without a human-created god that is the source of enforced morality, it’s just a matter of opinion, of the black-robed shysters and the voting public.” That’s the reality. We war now for ‘democracy’ which is the excuse for killing for resources and power and we the sheeple are still the pawns of the elites who created the gods in the first place and use them to keep the public obedient and compliant.
Jesus was probably a crazy monk and someone later turned what he actually said or did into the greatest control device ever created.
Just promise them steak, ice cream and a big screen and paradise in the next life and they’ll keep grazing and breeding and passing their slavery on to their children as they always have.
And I’m not going to waste time on the ‘Judaeo-christian’ crap except to state the obvious: Modern interpretations of ‘jewish’ and ‘Christian’ moralities are worlds apart and always have been. The Jewish leadership insisted the Romans kill their would-be messiah for a reason. See his actions above.
I call them the unmentionables. In a free country there’s no such thing as a group whose motives cannot be questioned. When we have that we have a serious problem. We have a serious problem.
