Spread the word for Religious Tolerance!But only if you believe in the things I do...
Hello darlings, its been a while hasn't it? I'll start of with the usual disclaimer. The above statement is not the personal view of myself. Anyone proposing the idea that I am promoting religious intolerance will have their head removed and their bodies offered up as a sacrifice
find themselves most mistaken. What I promote is Stupidity Intolerance. We cannot allow such stupidity to continue. It is our moral obligation to humanity to work to rid ourselves and society of stupidity. It is also your duty to me as loyal readers to help me combat it wherever you find it because really, I'm one blood pressure rise away from an aneurysm
This revival of Playgans
was brought to you by [iippo
] (go give her a hug) and her diary about how anti-god wikis keep spinning up. And at the head of them are people who call themselves pagans. Now I've been out of the smiting game for a while. I've been taking a break from rage, I have enough going on in my own life that makes my blood pressure rise so I've taken a break from Internet drama and stopped willfully seeking out playgans to smite. I hope you understand and can find it in your hearts to forgive me. But there's only so many people you can smite when you're on the verge of another
mental collapse. And in my lapse, the b@stards multiplied like bacteria on a dead dog.
But hey, guess what? :D
. And you're dead
So now, what I hear you cry, dearest reader, dear intelligent reader, is this rant about? (Oh how I've missed you dear reader <3) This rant my lovelies is about the concept of religious tolerance. Or rather, the severe lack
of religious tolerance. If any of you, and I mean any
of you now dare to think "Oh I KNOW Christianity is so intolerant of us!" I will kill you. "but but" NO *smacks* bad reader, that's a bad bad reader. *eyes the other readers* How could you let this person in? You knew
I was coming back from sabbatical, what did you think I wouldn't notice
Christians, Muslims, Hindus...and all other once considered mainstream religions (yea once
you're numbers are fading, sorry :( no really I am, its not nice to know your religion is declining) are not the only ones capable of religious intolerance. In fact I will think you find, that the majority of intolerant @ssholes are coming from our part of the ball court. It's cool though, the rest of us have really big tennis rackets and even though the springy bit in the middle bounces when you hit someone over the head they can do some serious damage. It'll make for an amusing bludgeoning if nothing else.
But I promised the [iippo
] one. So here goes.
I am sorry on behalf of the pagan world, that we are bringing so many religious intolerant jerks with us. No really I am, if I could bend down I'd be on my knees begging for forgiveness but y'know...bad back and all.
I find it incredibly ironic, that the people who talk about religious tolerance the most i.e. pagans, Wiccans etc etc are actually the most intolerant people at the moment
. I refrain from saying "intolerant religion" because its not the religion that is intolerant, its the people that claim to be following them. I mean, you all talk about how persecuted you are, how misunderstood you are. And yet...and yet.
Its all very well to be sitting there in your tacky masses of occult jewellery wearing "witchy" robes and bitching about how Christians only turn up to church on Sunday wearing their best clothes and are nice and kind for that one day then go back to being bastards, the assholes, I mean really, what makes them think wearing a cross makes them a Christian? And whats with the CLOTHES thing, I mean surely God loves you no matter what you wear...and OMG Silverhawk hasn't got her full ceremonial robe on! They are SO not as serious about this religion as I
am. The c*nt...er...love an light to our sister...
Has my point being made yet? Or do I need to get the tone of bricks out again and let them drop from a great height?
True, you get some Christians that are intolerant of your beliefs. But their religion tells them that there is no other God than theirs. So by following their belief system properly they are bound to have a problem with you believing in the polytheistic masses. But y'know what, the tolerant thing to do would be to let them follow their own religion and not harass them because their beliefs clash with yours. Y'know...not become the thing you hate. If it bothers you don't think about it. Unless you have grown up in a very Bible Beltish area, I very much doubt you have faced the experiences you are talking about. I mean really how many of you have actually been threatened with a cross by a Priest? Uhu...yea you put your hand down, I can tell by the tremble in your hand that you lie. You too, you grew up in a pagan home you twerp, what were they intolerant of the way you wore your massive pentacle?! Psch.
I know, I know that some of you will have had a bad experience with the Christian churches and some of the people that follow the religion. I have, and my family church was Protestant, and they tend to be a bit less...foreboding than the local Catholic Church. Which yea...was run by an insane man at one point...although I'm not sure what happened to him...oh yes that's right! The people in his church said he was intolerant of just about everything and he had to leave :D
Y'see folks, just because someone says they follow a certain faith such as Christianity, it does not mean that they put their soul to one side and allowed the words "Intolerant B*stard" to be tattooed over it. Some of my best friends are Christian, and by tarnishing them with the brush of religious intolerance you not only offend them but you offend me as well. And because they follow their faith properly and have probably turned their cheek by now, I'm afraid I'm going to have to bitch slap you for them :)
"But but...you're pagan...its love and life! You can't resort to violence"
'Nuff said. (I love that owl) I have to run now. I have a train to catch in an hour and I'm still sitting on the couch in my nightgown and a towel on my head. In a moment I'll be running about shouting "shit shit who stole my hair dryer!"
If I think of anymore to write here I'll add it when I get home. In the meantime, welcome back to Playgans we hope you enjoyed the show, refreshments are now available in the foyer.
