I’m not OCD and I’m not a hypochondriac, but the practice of communion is questionable.
First, a cute story. As a child, I went to church with one of my friends. My family wasn’t into the church thing, so I had no clue what was going on. At some point all of the people rose from their seats and went down to the front to get a little goodie. My friend’s mother told me to stay in my chair. This made me angry.
When I got home, I told my mom that everyone had snack except for me. Later, my friend’s mom called to explain that she withheld me from communion because I wasn’t a member of the church. She said she felt bad and wished she had let me participate. It turns out I may have dodged a bullet.
Religion intrigues me because a small group of people who follow a leader, and ascribe to certain practices, is often viewed as a cult. Add in millions of people and suddenly this is a norm.
I had never read the bible before. Besides wanting to know what people were really following, I was curious to learn about the basics. How would sex and politics be treated within a religious guideline? Well, I found out.
The bible: Wow. It’s disturbing.
Putting all murder and mayhem aside, I can now say that if you like sex, and lots of it, then the bible is for you. There was more than enough material to write a book about the juiciest parts; a whooping 197 pages.
I recently watched an interesting program on Netflix about mega brothels in Germany. Ironically, whether in Las Vegas or Germany where prostitution is legal, the men are still in charge of financial rape. Women in brothels are made to pay a fee for the privilege to work there. The supposed status of a prostitute as an individual contractor for tax purposes or a saleswoman who forks over a huge cut isn’t working, except for the boss men.
The house argues they are providing the brick and mortar as well as all the accoutrements, therefore they should get a cut.
Joy Behar of The View is in hot water for mocking Mike Pence about hearing from Jesus.
The entire fuss started with Omarosa, famed Celebrity Apprentice contestant and former White House staffer who seemed deathly afraid of Mike Pence’s strong religious beliefs. If he believes Jesus is telling him to say things, yeah, that scares me, too.
Joy took this information and declared that it is okay to talk to Jesus, but if one hears back he is mentally ill. Not an unsound argument.
Atheists such as myself would further argue one is not dealing with a full deck of cards if one speaks to a dead dude on a daily basis.
This lovely blog was indeed prompted by a customer service issue. Customer service has become like political correctness. We have all seen the irate customer being a complete jerk over something petty getting their sphincters kissed, when we might rather enjoy seeing these people being told how to forcefully insert items where the sun doesn’t shine.
There is an extra side of stink when customers quote the bible, hold the bible, or ask for the bible to be handed to them while they demean, berate, and condescend.
I am going to write a book. But first I need to do a lot of research, and that involves reading the Bible. I have never read it page to page. Twice in my life I started to read the Bible, but burned out in the first chapter on both occasions.
So far I am still in the Old Testament. It is an incredible read. We are not talking sex, drugs, and rock and roll, but rather incest and murder.
I am seriously wondering if this God is tricking people as the devil in disguise. God is mean, evil, vindictive, murderous, controlling, and contradictory. How is it that millions of people are able to reconcile his actions? It gives a whole new feeling to the term “God-fearing people”. You should fear him. He is one cruel and twisted dude.
Warren: An ironic name for the man who is the leader of people with lemming-like mentalities who breed like bunny rabbits on designated plots of land. Mr. Jeffs continues to lead the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS) from his jail cell since he was convicted of child sexual assault. The FLDS are a self segregated group of nuts who dress oddly, have a male hierarchy, and marry too many closely related (and interrelated) women, including having “marital” sex with underage girls, all in the name of God.
