My perfect Utopia…
Posted by Madame on November 30, 2008
I have spent the last few days with my eyes literally glued to the TV watching the horrific events unfold in Mumbai and it has left me totally dispirited and emotionally drained. It has also left me with more questions than answers…
Is Islam really an evil religion? Where does fanaticism stem from? Why is it that any atrocities carried out by Mulims are labelled as terrorism whilst those carried out by the Western world are deemed acceptable? Can we label George W Bush as a Christian jihadist? Geroge W, did after all call the war in Afghanistan, “a crusade” 😉 Isn’t religion really the root cause of all evil?
I know that I have written quite a few articles which are against Organised Religion and such and the terrorist attack in Mumbai, validates my stance on this even further. Religion is open to a person’s/religious teacher’s interpretation and herein, lies the danger. If you have an fanatical teacher, he/she will impart their fanatical views to their followers.
All Holy Books are written by man, I have yet to find proof that God himself wrote these books 😉 All these Holy Books were written by mere mortals who supposedly were inspired by and were messangers from God. Question…Who made them God’s messangers? Answer….They were all self-appointed! 😀 This is fact NOT fiction!
Religion has been used for centuries as a form of subjugation and mind control. Religion preys on the weak and feeble-minded by feeding into their insecurities. Religion is NOT a unifier but rather a divider…for whether we are honest enough to admit it or not…it does breed discrimination and intolerance. The terms gentile, kafir, heathen are all proof of this discrimination! Why is it that it is politically incorrect to use the word ‘Nigger’ or ‘Chink’ but it is socially acceptable to use terms such as ‘kafir’? Isn’t it exactly the same? Also a form of discrimination? One is racially related whilst the other has a religious connotation…the end result is EXACTLY the same!!! Discrimination and intolerance…
Religion is like an exclusive club…either you belong and are fully accepted OR you don’t belong and thus scorned and made to feel less worthy than the ‘exclusive set’. Some misguided Christians actually believe that irrespective of whether you are a ‘good person’ or not, you don’t stand a chance of entering heaven unless you belong to their ‘exclusive club’. Hmmm….mind boggling stupidity, perhaps?! 😉
The more I think about….Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have a world where religion becomes totally superfluous? A world where a person is measured by their moral conscience rather than their religious affiliation? A world that is mature enough to say ‘NO’ to the divisiveness of religion?
Welcome to my perfect Utopia….a world without religion 🙂
