This is a post about how much I hate religion.

"Some of my best friends are religious!..."

In Tartarstan, in the Russian Federation, some lunatic sect has been keeping children locked under-ground for years on end, its leader claiming to be a new Muslim prophet. Other Muslim leaders have said, er, no, Muhammed is the last prophet, and if you say otherwise you're not Muslim, so this shit isn't our responsibility. Cool. And Christians can say, er, no, Muhammed isn't a prophet, we stop at Iesu or whatever he's called. Cool. And Jews can say... and so on and so forth... 

Religion is bad, you barbarians-all, just fucking stop it.

I can't get over how religious leaders/groups in the region can absolve themselves of all responsibility by addressing one point of dogma in their fantasy and declaring that this sect leader deviates from it. Oh, so it's not your problem, then? Cool. I suppose the secular state will just have to deal with it. Well, there's a first time for everything (and a fucking seventy billionth, apparently).

Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Shintoists, Zoroastrians, Neo-Pagans, and all the rest, whatever made-up nonsense, you're all being dicks, just fucking grow up, we're all (people who aren't lying to themselves or others... there must be literally dozens of us in the world!) pig fucking sick of your shit.

We all (including you, don't fucking deny it you arrogant pricks) know that you're lying, it's inarguable, and you are getting a lot of people killed, tortured, raped, and robbed, and you've been doing it for thousands of years. Even in my most bizarre dreams I can't invent anything more evil than religion.

If this shit doesn't stop soon, I'm going to lose it and start building a forest of wicker giants, and then we'll all get our culturally sensitive religion on, and the pope is definitely invited. (I'm probably not going to do that. Just saying that if we really go the whole hog on religious tolerance, I'm going to have to set you all on fire to please Vindos.)

To clarify the point of this post: everyone who lies is a liar, and pointing out that another liar's lies contradict your lies does not legitimise your lies, you liar.

Or, “For fuck's sake, how much evil must humanity endure before you all just stop it?”
