Here I go - IF YOU ARE SQUEEMISH, TURN BACK NOW! I'M SERIOUS.
What's following here is against all Fundamentalists, Prosthelizers, and EVERYONE ELSE who's ever pushed their beliefs onto another person. This is for everyone who's ever Condemned, and commited Genocide in the name of their Gods, reguardless of God or Goddess. This Rant is forewarded to EVERY RELIGION OUT THERE THAT HAS EVER SAID: CONVERT OR DIE. GOD, GOLD, AND GLORY.
ARE YOU READY?
Now, I would like to start this Rant by, perhaps, start about the conversation I had on YouTube... Some of you may know about ShockAweNow, or ShockofGod. Well, he's made movies to me, and tried to convert me many times over now. It's been weeks, and after failing in intellectual discussion (where, might I add, he avoided my questions but demanded that I answer HIS questions), he cast a stone and called my Goddess fake. Upon my Defence, and frowning upon him for judging me, he responded by saying I'm going to go to hell, and that his hands are clean... Followed by a few more stones.
Then I went on a Rant which I will tell you now. I will tell EVERYONE now. This Rant is about most religions.... I call it, Salvation on a Platter.
As I read the post, I then began to type. And my fingers formed the words:
"Well, Atleast my God, Goddess and Spirits weren't made to order, trimming out ALL the pieces by a bunch of Kings and Nobles in a court, denying the World the probably TRUE words of your Christ and therefore plunging the world into 500 years of Darkness, where people were beaten and dragged through the street for dancing and singing.
Let's try to make this Rant havew some structure...
The Problem with Religion comes when Man creates it. Gods and Goddesses don't create Religion... Relion is created by Mortals. Religion is just the wrapper on a particularly ugly present. The gift, itself, would have been BEAUTIFUL if it wasn't for the rest of it being crunched up and sliced and diced so it could fit in the box... But hell, the Wrapping is so PRETTY!
It is not in the name of ANY good God or Goddess that war is Waged. Gods and Goddesses have better ways of doing things, instead of telling their followers to "Go here. Kill them. I said so." WHY would a God or Goddess do that?! They ARE Gods and Goddesses. They could perfectly well take care of something, or just make things happen naturally for things to happen. THEY ARE DIETIES.
But, why then, do Leaders wave the Bible (just saying it. I mean the Koran or any other doctrine) and claim that, according to that part, they can go kill, steal, and destroy? That they can slaughter ruthlessly? Because it's a God's will?
War is an invention of Man's strife. Dieties have no need for Mortals waging war. MAN has taken words of Gods and Goddesses, and contorted them to their own agenda and call it "Right." It is an atrocity beyond thought or reason. WHY, THOUGH? Because Mortals are Mortals. We're Human. We're Prideful, Hateful, and Smart. But, just the opposite, we are Solemn, Loving... And Stupid.
The Problem with Religion is that it is Religion... It is NOT based on what any Diety has said anymore, but what Mortals have said what Dieties have said.
MY rant mode is over... Please just read, or add on.

And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, everywhere,
