A Word to Fierce Humanists

When briefly opening a Facebook page
for our (at the time) garden nursery,
the following ignorant atrocity appeared
on my ‘logged-in’ page.

The one form of low-grade existence
for which I reserve absolute contempt,
are those creatures who like to cause pain,
fear, or degradation to any animal, child
or peaceful adult.

I do not care whether you are an Atheist,
Buddhist, so-called “Christian”,
hug trees, or Worship the Third Moon on the Right –

I simply despise … Bullies.

Especially those that supplement their cruelty
by spewing wholesale Ignorance.

In 2002, I completed three years of work
on an academic dissertation entitled:
“The Religious Humanism of the Modern
Evangelical Church” –

which took the Old Bible … and held it up
like a mirror to feel-good fantasists
or fuming fundamentalist “Christians”.
So … I am no defender of modern

What I AM however, is a defender – as best I can –
of animals and people who have not,
it may be,
the strength, or courage; or skill, or maturity,
to stand up to vicious thugs in this world.

Now, to all such ignorant punks who like to
degrade people that believe in … fairy tales –

Precisely what is it in the Ten Commandments,
that so offends you ?

1. Live as though you were not the centre of the universe.
2. No need to grovel and scrape to statues.
3. Exercise self-control over the verbal filth
that comes out of your mouth.
4. Give your employees and farm animals a day off
once a week.
5. Respect your own Dad and Mum.
6. Do not maliciously kill anyone.
7. Do not destroy the family next door with adultery
arising from your lust.
8. Do not steal what belongs to someone else.
9. Do not lie about, or cause disgrace to, another person.
10. Do not be greedy for everything you see.

Now – explain it to me.

YOU, who like to mock and demean
a certain moral segment of society –

WHAT precisely is so offensive to you
about the moral code of human conduct
listed above ?

And if people choose to live accordingly,
while believing in their Invisible Friend –

WHAT is THAT to YOU ???

Or does being an obnoxious Bully
degrading quiet and moral people in the world,
just appeal to your self-image as a smug,
arrogant thug?

Please direct me, also, to the book, chapter,
and verse(s) in the old Bible, where God
declares that he needs money.

Or are you simply displaying your contempt
and ignorance by equating shyster “evangelists”,
paedophile priests, and perverted “pastors” …
with the content of that book?

Have you even opened that old book,
and mentally digested its content?

Or are you content to scream that it is a
“Book of Hatred and Intolerance” –

by ignoring the repetitious sentiment of:

“Love your enemies, bless them that curse you,
do good to them that hate you,
and pray for them which despitefully use you” ?

While you are mocking and degrading
these Christians,
they are loving you enough to pray for you
to their Invisible Friend …

Precisely WHOM, I wonder,
is showing the Hate ???

A rhetorical question, of course, as the
very presence of an ignorant image such as this,
already reveals the extent of stupidity
and lack of rudimentary intelligence
in all who present it, or promulgate it
on places like Facebook.

As a brief summary:

The OLD Testament – which is so “repulsive”
to lust-loving narcissists in general, provides
the “rules to follow” for those who Claim
that they want to live in a … THEOCRACY.

For ancient Hebrews, these were the laws
and principles … by which ONE nation
was expected to live.

If you did not like that, then move to Egypt,
or Sodom, or some such pagan place on earth,
drink, ‘party’, and place your new-born baby
on the red-hot metal arms of the idol Molech
while the drums beat so you do not have to
hear the shrieks of agony from your child.

The NEW Testament provides rules and principles
for those who CLAIM subservience to God,
while living amongst people of ALL nationalities
throughout the world.

If I am living quietly and peaceably in the land
Quietly Worshipping anything that you deem foolish –

WHAT is that to you ???

Recently, I watched footage of a grizzly bear
being tortured by the gunshots
of the lowest forms of sadistic human debris –

It has affected me deeply,

and I am absolutely sick and tired of seeing that same
malignant cruelty exercised against folk by smug,
aggressive North Americans who live in relative luxury
and should be thankful for what they have …

… rather than looking for people to degrade and humiliate.

If you are posting this type of malicious tripe
– so openly displaying your lack of character to the world –
‘un-friend’ me,

because I do not want anything to do with
your Sweeping Contempt for, and ridicule of,
entire groups of people
who just want to live morally in this world.

I have spent my life withstanding displays of cruelty:

Perhaps, you might expend your energy doing that,

rather than displaying
your hatred for standards of morality;
as well as your degrading contempt for people
who only want to live quietly in the land ?
