Every national church or religion has established itself by pretending some special mission from God, communicated to certain individuals. The Jews have their Moses; the Christians their Jesus Christ, their apostates and saints; and the Turks their Mohamed, as if the was to God were not open to every man alike.
Each of these churches show certain books, which they call revelation, or the Word of God. The Jews say that their Word of God was given by God to Moses; fact to face; the Christians say that their Word of God came by divine inspiration; and the Turks say that their Word of God (the Koran) was brought by an angel from heaven. Each of those churches accuses the other of unbelief; and for my own part, I disbelieve them all.
Who was the masked-man who wrote these words? You guessed, the writer who gave us most of the writings for our revolution against England: Thomas Paine.
That’s right, the America that surrounded Paine at the time, the America on the verge of revolution, was far less hospitable to secularists than it is today. This makes total sense too since religion was designed to keep people from protesting, from thinking for themselves, from taking responsibility for their actions, and if the church of the day would have had its way, there would have been no American Revolution. Fortunately, England’s blind-faith was so apparent to the revolutionists, that they refused to follow any church. Now, they were not atheist, they were deist: they knew there was a higher power, just not anything any of the churches were pushing.
Funny, but it is still this way today, but somehow, the Churches and their mindless followers are still holding on to their myths, which in this deist’s mind, is holding us back from becoming a world with no religion. Notice, I said, No Religion, not, No God. Relax. When we all come together giving up our gods, we will come together as one.
I realize, from the writings I receive, that Christians are the most unhappiest about this peaceful thought. I guess this is because they own most of the world’s resources and so have the most to lose. The other faiths are the same though, and so no one is willing to give up his/hers gods in fear the others won’t, and both know how easy it is to kill for a god. Killing for ones god is as old as the pains of childbirth. The Pagans did it, the Jews did it, the Christians, Muslims, Taoist, etc..
So, you see the problem, no one is willing to disarm.
Maybe no one knows how?
Clear your mind, meditate on love. Notice the similarities in others as opposed to the differences. And finally, Impeach Donald Trump.
It’s that simple (chuckle, I really don’t want Trump impeached, I just don't want him anywhere near kids).
