Let God Sort 'Em Out


Sorry, remind me -- who's waging a holy war again?

It just never ends, does it... this obsession with ramming religion down people's throats. This now pervasive feeling that fundamentalist Islam is evil, but fundamentalist Christianity is righteous (not to mention oppressed).

And then folks wonder why it's more and more difficult to find someone who is both religious and intelligent. It's becoming almost impossible to identify yourself with any of the major Western religions... especially if you have even the slightest bit of self-awareness. Everyone's using religion as an excuse to go kill someone... like the Dark Ages never left, the Renaissance never happened, science never advanced.

Every once in awhile I feel bad for that constant nagging feeling that atheists are superior to believers. Things like this don't help.

Giving new meaning to the term "putting Jesus inside you." Yeah, at a velocity of 2,500 feet per second.

"Putting Jesus inside you at a velocity of 2,500 feet per second."

How much you want to bet if you anonymously post this on several "christian" forums that it would become a motto for these supposed "soldiers for christ?"

Not that I would suggest doing such a thing. *nudge* *nudge* *wink* *wink*

As much as I would LOVE to be shocked about this, I really can't be. In this day and age, Christianity is an integral part of the Military, as wrong as it is. And unfortunately for me and my husband (he's in the Army), it's crammed down our throats on an almost daily basis. Oh, and we're extremely liberal. How we (him especially) haven't been chained up and stoned to death is beyond me.

But the mentality is, if you don't believe in God, and if you're an Obama loving Socialist, you aren't a real American. I know more people than I care to count who, I'm sure, are LOVING this concept of Bible verses inscribed on their weapons.
