religious fanatic prioritization

Here of late I'm having a hard time mustering much outrage at the relatively harmless, if somewhat annoying, evangelical Christians. At least in modern times, all of the religious fanatics in all faiths, pale in comparison to the murderous muslim. As long as they continue to be a threat to decent people I don't really see myself having any anger or outrage leftover to trickle down to religonuts of any other faith. The Christian's habit of worrying people into joining up seems benign when compared islamist's habit of murdering people whether they join or not. I am not a Christian (I am not an atheist either) But Christianity IS the religion of my people and many of my fond memories include references to it. For instance every high school football game that I participated in was started with a prayer, thousands of grade school mornings started off by proudly standing, hand over heart, reciting the pledge of allegiance, and last but not least 45 Christmas's.
The soul savers get on my nerves too and I don't buy the fairy tale that they are selling but until the violent muslims have all been sent to the LAND OF 72 VIRGINS, I'll be reserving my anger and outrage for them.

Forcefully yours,

I don't disagree. I don't want christianity banished from the face of the earth or to even change the culture. I think for the most part christianity is probably overall a good thing for our society, and I would love to see the end of Muslim culture in our society, but I AM sour on the fantacism on either side of the religious aisle and the points I made regarding Haysusianity were not only highly humorous but insightful and cutting . I will do my allahahaism rant later.

Good, I look forward to your religion of peace bashfest.

This is good topic for the blog because it guarantees disagreement. And disagreement equals fun. At the moment I don't have anything to add to the discourse that wouldn't be superfluous or inflammatory, although you can look forward to my contribution on the subject in the future.

In the meantime I would like to offer what I think is an insightful, albeit amateurish, psychoanalysis of you, my two blogging comrades. It's obvious that the Archduke has severe violent tendencies, which for reasons yet to be determined, he has focused on the religious people of the world. He simply has chosen the Muslim people as his object in need of immediate elimination. If not stopped he will then move on to remainder of the God fearing peoples of the world.
The Vicar, on the other hand, is a little more complicated. While not violent, he appears to be consumed with a rage that causes him to be at once repelled by and attracted to his object. It has been the experience of this observer that when one possesses these feelings toward docile religious types, it is usually a sign that in the early life of the patient he suffered some sort of "trauma" at the hands of those at which he projects these conflicted attitudes.

Hey that priest did NOT traumatize me! He acquainted me to the holy scepter of love and I am still extremely fond of my own to this day.

Say what you will, but a God that forbids the eating of bacon cannot be the true God and therefore all of his followers NEED to die.
