Bloodless & Heartless
Someone please explain to us how a man who cold-bloodedly conspires to cause the deaths of millions and millions of human beings is not being investigated for and arrested for genocide.
Why does it make it all right for him to do it, or unthinkable to prosecute him, just because the deluded (and professionally deluding) old fool is “religious”, or because he believes in some totally unscientific, utterly unverifiable mumbo-jumbo. That is no excuse. He is killing people in the millions and people who do that have to be brought to account in a court.
By all means believe your crazy fantasies – the sort of mad beliefs you wouldn’t and do not associate with any other part of life except religion, because you know they’re completely irrational – but for fuck’s sake don’t inflict them on other people to the extent that it actively kills them, the way the Pope does. Of course you’re afraid to die and religion helps you out there with its false, unverified and unverifiable promise of eternal life, but just because you’re afraid of death you shouldn’t inflict it on others to make yourself feel better. That’s just a wee bit selfish, don’t you think?
At least spoon-bending has the advantage of being a sleight-of-hand where you can see the magic trick. Religious faith doesn’t. They just say, “the wine has turned into blood” and you’re supposed to believe it without any evidence whatever. What sort of gullible fools not only believe this stuff but even protect the men who pass it off as truth as if they are founts of wisdom rather than massive bullshit artists and monsters? The catholic church, by this African test, hates humanity. Only evil misanthropes would pursue the deaths of countless others for the sake of protecting their delusions.
You know it’s wrong. In fact you know it’s criminal.
