Not that it makes a difference, but has dogcatcher (animal control) ever actually been an elective office in the US? It's said, apparently very
truthfully, that no openly agnostic or atheist candidate could ever win an election for so much as a dogcatcher here in "the land of the free."
This is substantially different from, say, Iran and Saudi Arabia HOW? All are equally enough complicit in suppressing, disallowing the most basic of
critical-logical thinking, the most obvious "no-brainers." It's ultimately more an issue, more the responsibility of the legions of ENABLERS,
those who are too apathetic and/or afraid to speak out, than the various religious believers themselves, as far as I can tell. The silence speaks not
just volumes, but more like many libraries.
That has nothing to do with the actual existence or nonexistence of any type of singular Supreme Being; it's just the essentials of honesty,
objective reality. Mere unproved BELIEFS make no real difference in the big picture, just the actual, unbiased truth, or at least the desire for and
pursuit of it.
The extreme irony that President Obama speaks the same basic "religitarded" language as his most vehement detractors of the religious conservative
"right" would be hilarious if it wasn't so sad and loathsome. Two recent examples of his Bible-based preaching come to mind: Most recently he
mentioned "Original Sin" as though it's a proved-by-definition fact, and at the funeral of the slain South Carolina minister last June he said,
quite emphatically, "Grace is something that comes only from God, not from humans." Period, end of story, right? No grace -- mercy, forgiveness
etc. -- can come from humans at all, ever, only from an allegedly single Being whom there is nothing resembling compelling evidence, let alone proof,
even exists. In a sufficiently intelligent and moral civilization, that type of dangerously cultist mentality would be unacceptable and nonexistent,
at least in a position of political power. Could such ghastly-grim, utterly unproved religious beliefs from Obama be, at least in his case, an
indication of his own psychopathic tendencies? (That's a question, not a veiled assertion).
Whatever the truth is about God or "God" -- whichever is real if either -- and even if it can never be determined with 100% certainty, the real
objective or goal is or should be in thinking, feeling, doing, BEING more godly, in a more moral, honest and intelligent way, and not abdicating
responsibility (at all, in any way, even slightly) by deferring, putting everything on an alleged someone or anyone of the unknown/unproved who just
might not exist.
