THE CHIEF PROBLEM WITH ORGANIZED RELIGION IS HYPOCRISY
I read last night that a man named http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2012/03/iran-hangs-christian-pastor-youcef-nadarkhani/>”>Youcef Nadarkhani</a> had been executed in Iran. Mr Nadarkhani is still quite alive but the case gave me, as a demon journalist an opportunity to look at the Iran of today and the America ruled by theocrats tomorrow side by side. The conservative websites who sprung to support their martyr before news spread that the Protestant evangelical minister living in Iran was not dead are littered with comments about how intolerant Islam is.” The truth of the matter is, a least from where I sit here in hell is that the ruling and elite in Iran and the fundamentalist religious elite in America have only their holy books, language and geographical location as differences.
There has to be a clear distinction between the people who support war and killing, who feel they have a right to tell a woman what to do with her body, who feel they have a right to say who can and cannot marry despite engaging in sham annulments and divorce at an alarming rate, and who demand a lifestyle at a shameful level of greed and those who actually try to live their lives by the words and deeds of the Son of man as dictated in the Bible. I call these greedy, warmongering social control minded people Christianists. Christianists are the people curiously who hate Islam and Iran the most. Both the Iranian leadership of Ayatollahs and mullahs and the politico religious Christianists have corrupted their respective religion’s messages to the point that all are apostates.
When you come down to it this is all a horrible con being played upon people who need to be herded like sheep. The contraception thing in the United States is a dual edged sword. On one side it keeps women barefoot and pregnant, silent, caged and without the ability to seek their own paths. However, it does serve the Catholic Christianist purpose of having your own in church breeding farm for more future suckers. Newt Gingrich can have his past marriages annulled but divorce is not allowed. There are double standards for double standards in a religion that would prefer to institutionalize child rape rather than clean house and beg forgiveness from the Flock.
One could go on for quite some time in this vein. religion is filled with hypocrisy but the one that glows brightest in the case of this Christian man in Iran is that most of the conservatives who wailed about his “execution” want the same sort of “my religion first” government to be in power in America as it is today in Iran. The Iranian leadership is conservative and theocratic; their beliefs, their religious beliefs are the law. This is precisely was far right religious conservative Americans desire. You see this now in personhood bills, anti-contraception efforts and you will see even more with the first airing of the ABC comedy “Good Christian Bitches.” The problem Christianism and Islamism alike is they are rooted in hypocrisy. The Iranian government swears to allow religious freedom however this could not be a larger lie. The American religious, from Catholic bishops to bloggers who wear their religion and their politics pinned to their right sleeves, feel that since white landed men, many of whom were Christians, founded America only their views should apply–legally. What a terrible standard to set for the rest of the world since all of this exceptionalism talk dictates that the rest of Terra should follow America on a path to freedom and prosperity. Hogwash! By its very actions in recent months American Theocrats have shown that they are jealous of the awesome racket the Ayatollahs have going in Tehran.
