Religiosity... by carpe dee on 2002-03-31 12:51:20

... and how to avoid it -- Well Happy Whatever... My little town is inundated with a trillion golfers attending the Dinah Shore event, a bahzillion gays and lesbians attending the "White Party" (an annual event which, they say, has NOTHING to do with the KKK or Nazi-ism! [?] -- I still think it's a poor choice of names...), a million college kids attending Spring Break and a host of others attending church (of all places). I am sick of religion. Everyone running around: My hands are more firmly pressed together prayer than yours!: I can bow my head lower and longer in prayer than you! It's trite. It's arrogant. And it's for the masses.... As a wise fool once remarked: Why be different when you can be unique?

  "My hands are more firmly pressed together prayer than yours!: I can bow my head lower and longer in prayer than you!"? Have you been reading from my religious book? You know that that's exactly where I stand on the thing. Though, to be fair, the Huddersfield Christians were quite quiet about the whole thing. A cross carrying thing on Friday, a guy burning a little too much wood today. Nothing nasty.

  ... and what "religious book" might that be then, eh?

  If I had my way, it'd be the 23 parts of the dead sea scrolls. Cut apart with modified medical equipment, dontcha know! (Too fragile to unravel it, see?)

  NOW do you understand why I liked working at the library (in Tech. Services) mending and repairing older texts? P.S. you don't need "medical equipment" to do this work -- they have actual library tools for this!

  You say this 'NOW' as if I wouldn't understand why somebody enjoys the reconstruction of ancient texts! Sheesh! Imagine the holding of history in your very hands! The closest the normal person can get to doing that is by buying the most enpesive antique &/or work of art they can find, and treasuring it.

But a text, not only do you have the actual chemical substances; the ink, the paper, the dust and all that comes with it, but you also get the language and face. Words, pictures, sometimes the two together.

Now that's the dream. Some Scotland Yard dossiers from 1800s. If only there hadn't been the I.R.A. bombing, the gross incompetancy, everything....I don't know.

  ...You're getting worked up over nothing, really. Why don't you alloow your fears to rest themselves while you accept the sacrament of baptism within the Catholic church? What harm can it cause you? The benefit of becoming Catholic is the splendid eternity promised to them by none other than God himself. I know what's holding you back. And so does God. Just ease up a little, won't you? You'll find that it offers you a gentle path, leading straight to the glorious Kingdom of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Enjoy!

  Hell hath no fury like Ozzie scorned. When speaking of such matters include me in the picture. I may be a bit impotent as the bloody prince of darkness but I still hold sway regarding these sorts of topics. I should like you to know I now have the world's most powerful leader under my influence these days. Viacom chairman Sumner Redstone simply took a hit of my one-hit wonder ganja and offered me $20 bloody million American dollars to do nothing more than rant & rave in an overblown mansion. I'm a pretty good conversationalist with the wife and kids around the Beverly Hills home set but to be paid an amount equal to the total annual foreign aid received by Madagascar requires some wickedly bloody black magic. I still got the keys to my 'Crazy Train' and I'm riding that bloody thing til the end mates.
