I can’t believe you have spent so much time

Published October 12th, 2008 by Bobby Henderson

I can’t believe you have spent so much time being sarcastic about how stupid you think faith in God is. People who have faith are not crazy, dillusional, or using religion as a crutch. I’ve heard it all. I don’t understand why people like you make fun of the single concept that believing in God comes down to–love. That’s all it’s really about. Making a mockery of something people feel passionate about is kind of a waste of time. I feel bad that you have gotten yourself so deep into this FSM thing and are surrounded by people who agree with you. Some things don’t have to make sense to you to be true.

I believe in what the Bible offers me because it all has a single underlying message: to be a pure and loving person. Although I’m not always, I want to strive to be…and this makes my life happier.

If you were to see a slideshow of your entire life, would you truly feel pride? Would you see yourself with images of sharing positive and happy emotion with others that isn’t based on making fun of Religion?

Someday you will come to a point where you’ll know the Truth. And you may not believe me now, but I’m just trying to help you…the day that you die, if you find yourself afraid and alone, just call out to Jesus. Just remember this.

Love,
Carolyn

    What a nice letter. Probably the most sane of the lot.. I guess following the moral messages within the Bible, such as being “pure and loving” is a good idea. However, it is obviously possible to not be religious and to live by similar morals.
    Along with moral guidelines, Religious texts often have many conflicting messages within them. This can lead to other more sinister beliefs and practises within religion.
    All those “afraid and alone” people who resort to religion for comfort and hope are effectively being decieved – because it isn’t real. I know humans generally need faith of some kind – I just think i’d rather not.

    “”"People who have faith are not crazy, dillusional, or using religion as a crutch.”"”

    Yes they are delusional – they have ABSOLUTE faith in something that THEY can’t even prove to exist.

    Yes they are crazy – you’ve apparently never totally deflated one’s arguments before – not pretty.

    Yes you do use religion as a crutch – Instead on trying to understand what is around you, you fall back to ancient mythos and PURE speculation. Cuz’ all the real heavy lifting scares the shit out of you.

    “”"I don’t understand why people like you make fun of the single concept that believing in God comes down to–love.”"”

    WHAT LOVE? God SAYS he loves, but then murders MILLIONS, inspires others to murder MILLIONS MORE, he’s racist, sexist, homophobic, jealous, vengeful… and all this is LOVE???? You have a warped concept of the word.

    “”"Making a mockery of something people feel passionate about is kind of a waste of time.”"”

    So you say… but it got your panties in a bunch – and MANY others too. So apparently it is VERY effective – thus FAILING to be a waste of time. True glory is only attained through FSM.

    “”"I believe in what the Bible offers me because it all has a single underlying message: to be a pure and loving person.”"”

    and a hateful, murderous asshole. and a flighty headed idiot. Even a hypocrite – because of contradiction. and a racist. and a sexist. etc…

    “”"If you were to see a slideshow of your entire life, would you truly feel pride? Would you see yourself with images of sharing positive and happy emotion with others that isn’t based on making fun of Religion?”"”

    Yes, I would feel massive pride. I have lived a more “ideal christian” life than the vast majority of Christians. I don’t make fun of religion, religion makes fun of me and I retaliate. Seriously though, religion is no laughing matter – it’s downright DEADLY.

    “”"Someday you will come to a point where you’ll know the Truth.”"”

    I came to that point long ago, and the truth does NOT lie within a God. Here is a question: If God told you to murder your child, would you do it? Or would you tell God to go fuck himself? I’m sure the answer will surprise me…

    “”"if you find yourself afraid and alone, just call out to Jesus.”"”

    No thanks. I don’t associate with the kin of murderers. Besides, I have a very rich inner world, where it is impossible to be alone and afraid.

    Another fundy who believes that she is in full posession of “truth”.

    I once told a fundy that there are points of view other than his own. He told me, “No, Alphy, there is only truth. He like Carolyn, obviously believes that he is in full posession of all truth. Their self deceit and arrogance is an identifying mark of fundies. Anything they believe is truth. Anything anyone esle believes, even with the slightest variance, is false. That black or white, true or false, got to see things our way dichotomy of fundamentalist bigots sticks out like a sore thumb and it is one of their tell tale signs. There is no room for the slightest desent. Who made these bigots the sole guardians of all truth?

    They can kiss my ass!
