The Battle for Reason
To repudiate the theocratic totalitarian evil that spreads from the ignorance of fools, must be the main goal of anyone with any regard for truth, or reason.
For what comes from those who think they have God on their side is capriciousness and cruelty on a sadistic scale. Looking forward gleefully to the end of civilization, and the welcome of the Saviour, they dismiss the harm they cause in the present. They do not consider the lives they destroy now. The effect on a young gay man who is expelled and ostracized, for not what he does, but for who he is.
A young couple in love, denied the freedom and choice to love, without being deemed evil if they use contraception. The writhings and teachings of those in the jewel palace of the Sistine Chapel, or of Mecca, affect all who listen, with the hearts of those mis-guided, bitterly confused, affected most.
Religion poisons and pollutes everything. Profane in foundation, with the moral teachings of vicarious redemption a standard of morality, it affects us in our most basic integrity. Stating we cannot be moral without the celestial father, the dictator, it abolishes the concept of personal responsibility on which all ethics and morality must depend on.
To be enrolled in the ranks of the comrades who repudiate these evil claims is not only an honour it is to be apart of an alternative history as well as an alternative present and future.
