Pick a God. Any God.

scruffy godIf you believe in God then you have to believe that he had a progenitor, that he just didn't pop out of thin air. C'mon, think about it, people!

And if you believe that God had antecedents, then you have to believe that he's not all-powerful, that there may exist godlike creatures similarly as powerful.

And if you believe all that, how do you know you're praying to the right god? You might be praying to a lesser bureaucrat in the deity chain, the ecclesiastic equivalent of the janitor for all you know.

Just sayin'.


I do go on (and on and on) about the silliness of religion, but I finally found a reason to complain that might strike a nerve with the more pious of you.

According to figures by the Council for Secular Humanism, organized religion is subsidized in this country to the tune of $71 billion dollars per year, and very little of this stunning sum makes it back into the pockets or bellies of the needy. Wal-Mart, according to the article, is more charitable than most religious organizations put together. (You have NO IDEA how much it galls me to report that.)

So where is all this money going? Good question, but it certainly isn't going to God's bank vault on the sky, but it IS coming out of your pocket whether you put it in the collection plate or on the horses at Belmont.

So tax the church. Tax 'em now! That goes double for churches that advance conservative political dogma.



Oh, that Mitt.

big fat liarEric Zeusse has written a column at Business Insider entitled "Mitt Romney's Three Big Lies". In a nutshell:

• Bain did not create jobs.

• Republicans do not have better economic ideas.

• Being a wealthy businessman does not make someone a better president.

Please read the story as Mr. Zuesse goes into much more salient detail than I.

Mitt Romney is a liar. A big fat, liar.

Caption: Though he was a good nephew God had difficulty spending time with his aunt God.

Aunty God: "Oh, look! There's a picture of you and your brothers, God and God. And here's one of your uncle God mowing the lawn. His wife God ran off with a man named God, you know, and they had a little girl named God. She's now living on the coast with a woman named God. It was a scandal."
