“Every time anyone says that Israel is our only friend in the Middle East, I can’t help but think that before Israel, we had no enemies in the Middle East.” Fr. John Sheehan, S.J.

I think I was about 14 maybe. That's when I rejected Christianity...along with all other religions. I have found no evidence to make me seriously reconsider joining any religion since. To me it's a no-brainer.
But to others it would be a no-brainer to even consider such a rejection. There's no accounting for the difference in people. That I understand. We are goofy creatures, humans.
I am no Richard Dawkins however. I don't really care what people believe, or don't believe. Until it infringes on me, or things I DO care about, I really couldn't care less.
I think that's more or less just common sense...which is losing it's commonality recently.
A lot of people ask me why I have got it out for the jewish religion. Don't I feel as though I am going to be judged less intelligent than I am, by this "anti-semitism" that I espouse constantly? Why pick on that religion as opposed to any other ones that I clearly have rejected?
If I had lived in the middle ages....I wouldn't have had a very long life, I suspect. I think I would have been burned at the stake as a heretic at a rather young age. Not because I would virulently oppose the Christian doctrine per se....but what it allowed it's followers to do with impunity, and without remorse. And that would be mistreating other humans in the name of their religion. That is what I oppose to the very marrow of my bones...and always will.
And I'm afraid that I am going to have to say, that if you in any way, shape or form, believe that because someone doesn't believe in what you consider to be the "right" religious version of the universe...and you in ANY way harm them...from outright murder to exploitation to political pressure, because of this religious bullshit... then you are wrong, wrong and wrong. From Jesus-fucking-Christ, to asshole-Moses, to shit-head Mohammmad... if any of these imaginary beings ever reportedly said anything about hurting others due their religion or lack of it(and they all did)...then to HELL with them(if it existed). End of story.
Judaism is quickly becoming the Christian church of the dark ages. I didn't choose this abhorrent religion to be the one in power at this moment in history that I happen to be walking through. It is the established holy-holy religion that cannot be questioned or challenged, in these modern times. It's followers are full of themselves(as well as something else) and really think they are chosen, as I am sure the Crusaders felt back in the twelfth century.
But jews add a new twist to their "religious" supremacism. And that is that they aren't really religious. This is a tribe...a club...a syndicate, if you will. These, for the most part, are NOT holy people, serving an imaginary being in the sky. These adherents worship the graven image of cash. To them money is power and power...well, is power. This also to me is a no-brainer.
So, then what do I expect of jews when I clamor for them to come round to my way of thinking? The same thing that I expect of everyone and what countless other sane people have done. Reject it. Reject the tenets of your particular religion and all it's superiority and what that sentiment invariably leads to. I did. It's not that hard. Really.
I understand why is so difficult for a jew to "reject" his religious upbringing however. Because, as opposed to most, the rewards of this religious code are of the here and now. Instant profit. No waiting for pie-in-the-sky Nirvana or heavenly rewards. Why wait for 72 virgins in the afterlife...get them now, while you KNOW you can enjoy them. Is it any wonder then, that they are the purveyors of credit and usury in our world? Buy now...and YOU pay later...they don't feel that they will have to. But there is such a thing as human dignity. ALL humans have it somewhere in them...even jews. It usually precedes such questioning and rejection.
One of the kindest, most gentle people I have ever known is a Palestinian woman. Her family has been herded into the west bank along with most of the other oppressed people of her country, if not murdered outright. This is all because of the jew and his separatist, racist hatred and fear. That is one of the main reasons that I go on about jews....jews that do NOT reject their bullshit religion, their selfish materialistic rearing and the genocide that THEIR culture inflicts on another.
Whoever said "religion spoils everything" surely knew what they were talking about.
What a great world this would be without it.
