The Real Terror of Religion and its Ultimate Victims of Abuse

The Real Terror of Religion and its Ultimate Victims of Abuse

There is a scene on the telly of Muslims in Paris wanting to crowd into the local mosque for comfort and those outside talking to the cameras about “they are not like those who kill (the terrorists) and that Islam is a beautiful religion of peace.”

I dare say most people on the inside of the religion bubble see it as something good and part of the social glue of family and community.

But the truth is that for the three main monotheistic religions of the mean little desert god by various local names, these religions all began in violence under generals Moses, Constantine or Mohammed.

What do you mean Constantine created Christianity? Yes Christ the state sponsored myth and deity of a dying dysfunctional Roman Empire needed one last push of unity that the Emperor/God Constantine needed to stay insanely in power. It has little to do with a person named Jesus who may or may not have existed in historical myth. 

His, the Emperor/God Constantine's giving deeds to basilicas to bishops throughout his empire to collect taxes and recruit soldiers and dispense Sharia Law in those very same structures was the stuff labeled Christ-ianity to carry out his noble cause of gluing the mess of his dying empire back together again one last time. (...all the king's horses and all the king's men could not put ...)

I dare say that secret ceremonies in his special Christian Army units still practiced worship of secret Army deities while the secret ceremonies of the bishops carried on secret ceremonies of debauchery with the rank and file etc.

That Charlemagne killed all his conquered people with death by beheading for not submitting to the Christian faith and its church spies. That Islam was offered all throughout  the Middle East and Asia at the point of a sword at the head of conquering armies.

That Moses took what he wanted in terms of land and slaughtered people in the old fashioned way, the Egyptian way.

That people in times of personal or national crisis turn to the old gods for comfort. Today is no different than back then.

I especially feel sorry for those minorities that are not welcome in the Catholic Christian Sect, intelligent women or gay men and women or the discarded children of clergy rape, of power's pleasure. 

I feel sorry for people waiting around for stale crumbs from the old closeted gay master’s tables. Better a kick in the gut than a pat on the back from that human trash running that particular organization into the ground.

As Auntie Mame says in the movie at least. “Life is a feast and most poor sons of bitches are starving to death.”


Religion is poison. Toxic to the human race. 

Religion is for Terrorists. 

(or losers)

In the Cold - Trinity Houses - Philadelphia - circa 1930s/1940s

Saw this on an Old images of Philadelphia blog that I follow and contribute to.



I cannot tell you how many great aunts, cousins, neighbors and one Ggrandmother this image evokes in my memory. These women were all worn out from life and I cannot imagine great heat or comfort from a stove like that. The only thing these women I think had in common, they all kept up with the color of their hair from their glorious youth.

Also, I grew up in Philly and all this substandard housing got torn down in urban renewal in the 50’s and the monster of I-95 that consumed tens of thousands of these quaint houses in the 60s which if left untouched would have left cute fodder for hipster renewal these days and exorbinate prices. 

But in reality, a lot of these trinity houses, three floors stacked on each other with a winding stair in the corner, a lot of these houses were on alley ways and in many instances, the city could not install modern sewage because the narrow thoroughfare at street level locked in sewage pipe/tunnel installation from below street level would cut off access to the housing. Many times that was the reason the one toilet or the one water pump on the property was out in the backyard off another alley or at the end of the row of houses.


(Typical view in the first floor room of a trinity house.

Description....Older woman sits next to wood stove with kindle in a bucket at her feet. Bushel basket sitting on right. Decorative fireplace sits in wall behind woman. Open door. A box, clock, oil lantern and cup sit on mantle.)


Comment on blog: That's really interesting. The little stove she's sitting next to was designed for heating water for doing laundry in the laundry rooms or basements of large houses. But it was probably just the right size to heat a trinity room.

No American Male is worth his salt after 40


I have been running into this for over two decades now. Once you reach 40, you are not worth shit on the Wharton Global Spreadsheet, carry over from the human not worth shit scales. You are no longer the young potential warrior type to bring down the wooly Mammoth and bring home the bacon. 

Your value in society diminishes in direct proportion to your diminishing assets of hormones. 

The laws of the U.S. under the old liberal regimes protect against "age discrimination" but most firms and their cadres of lawyers know every period, comma, dotted "i" and crossed "t" in the definition of age discrimination category - so good luck with trying to prove that on your own. 

I posted this below on Facebook and got no response, so I deleted it.

"Geez. All this Bullsheet on the news with guns and would be alpha males shrieking Allah etc. is starting to feel a lot like one giant video game among the Millennials and their toys and apps in momma’s root cellar and camel garages throughout all the Middle East. Honestly, didn’t these kids have real toys, sticks, balls or get to see black and white TV reruns of Westerns with cowboys and Indians fighting over worthless radioactive desert land in Utah? '

‪#‎Mali‬‪#‎Paris‬ ‪#‎ISIS‬ ‪#‎Alqaeda‬ ‪#‎NRA‬

Whole bit of words reeks of geezer-ism.

Whatever.
