musings from le cornichons cynical consortium

The Presidential race seems to have rallied the troops on both sides, bringing out the best and the worst in both sides.

To me, the most comical are the religious right wingers VS. the supposed godless intelligista.

In regard to the all mighty Christian gun totin' bubbas and bubbettes with their "Jesus told me to hate you" mentality, although I fully support their right as Americans to have their opinion but they are a bunch of elitist snobs if you really stop and think clearly

The problem with Atheists is most of them are also snobs.

I could, and will at some time, rail against all things wrong with hyper-religious-ness (my new word) right now I will bitch about Atheists.
Atheists think they’re being clever with their spaghetti monster analogies and fairy tale rhetoric, but at the end of the day, they come off sound like condescending pricks.

Furthermore, any group of people claiming superior intelligence that willingly engages in the fight of a losing battle automatically loses credibility. However, Atheists are too dumb to realize they’re fighting a losing battle, so they persist with the lecturing and the withering stares. Atheists have singled handedly ruined coffee shops with this crap.

I, myself, have not been able reach a decision and to claim belief or denounce my belief in a higher power for many, many years. However, I can still see the value in Religion.

Perhaps growing up with two strong parental figures in my life made me recognize the possible value of a loving Father figure up in the sky watching out for me. And hey, I try my best not forget that sometimes we all need something to believe in.
Most Atheists have the tendency to thumb their noses at Jesus, and then log onto World of Warcraft so they can pretend to be an orc for a couple of hours. They sneer at the Bible, but have no problem playing endless hours of vampire role playing games.

The message is clear.

Fantasies are OK as long as they include gratuitous violence and some sort of porn.

It’s no wonder Religious folks don’t take them too seriously. Even the Quiet Intellectual Atheist comes across as if he’s only denying belief to be aversive. It’s hard not to pity the guy addicted to nonconformity like an addict to a needle.
Personally, I don’t mind Religion. Religious leaders, on the other hand, really get my goat. But in my experience, when you approach someone by saying, “Hey. I don’t mind Catholicism. It’s just the creepy priests fucking altar boys that gross me out,” members of the congregation are more apt to listen.
My only real issue with Religion (and ultimately, it’s a fairly small issue) is that it teaches people to be good for all the wrong reasons. Whether it’s the fear of a vengeful God and eternal life spent in the flames of Hell or the possibility of winning a ticket into Heaven accompanied by a boat load of virgins, people are still behaving well to escape punishment or to win everlasting life.
Ideally, people would be good because it’s the right thing to do. Not because they want good Karma to come back on them and not because they’re hoping for a personal cloud to lounge on in the sky, but because doing the right thing is its own reward. I’d like to live in a world where people aren’t secretly hoping for a payoff for every single good dead they’ve ever done.
But then again, most of society today seems almost completely lacking in any moral compass whatsoever.

So if ‘God’ does his part to scare some little bastard out of stealing my stuff, I guess I can’t complain too much.
Any Atheist who does seriously needs to reevaluate his priorities. oui?

Now Jesus, I want you to go out back and cut a switch, you're next.

Doesn't Palin's son have Down's syndrome? Why did McCain keep talking about autism? The poor guy's confused, maybe everyone (even the atheists) should say a prayer for him.
