God the Mass Murderer

One of the strongest articles of faith among evangelical Christians is that their God is a mass murderer.

The latest is Franklin Graham opining that the tsunami in Japan was just God sending a message. God being all powerful and all chose to massacre tens of thousands of innocents rather than, I don't know, leave a message on Graham's voice mail.

God's voice on FOX, Glenn Beck, also saw the devastation in Japan as a message to "stop doing some of that stuff we're doing." Hey, ya think, maybe, you could be a little more specific?

A year ago, Pat Robertson laid the blame for a couple hundred thousand innocent deaths from the earthquake in Haiti as God vengeance for their rebelling against slavery 200 years ago. I can't think of anything snide to say, Pat Robertson is one sick bastard.

According to fundamentalists, God is our shepherd and he goes about joyfully butchering us humans like so much mutton.

But...but, he works in mysterious ways. That's why we worship him so much. Except when there is a good football game on. Or when it suits our purpose to lie, cheat, steal, and kill. Religion is just a license to do bad things (just like him) because we know we are saved.

When I was a kid I lived in Utah, and the Boy Scouts was taken over by Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS Church). This, so called religion, practices underage polygamy, they send the boy s off on missions to divide the underage sisters among the dirty old men of the clan. Now when these underage girls get pregnant, these same dirty old men, send them to the state to get their welfare checks . You should see some of the palace homes that are paid with welfare checks (not on just one of course). By the way this is the newest religion that was created right here in United States of America, I guess their also in AZ, CA, NM, TX, NV, CO, OK. When someone hides behind religion to do or say something that is wrong we should stand up and point it out (right the wrong). Someone should ask Glenn Beck about it, he seems to have all the answers.
