Annals of Anti-Theism

LONDON (Reuters) – The world's troubles are rooted in a rejection of God
Heard this kind of crap anywhere before? Sure you have, all the fucking time from the expensively suited charlatans of American religiosity. This time the source is slightly different, but essentially the same. (Cheaper suit, though.)
and if Jesus Christ lived today he would stand up against bullying powers, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will tell Britons on Christmas Day.
Granted, that part's a bit different. Our religious fuhrers would probably say that ol' Jeezis would be standing up against the powers that are relentlessly bullying Anglo male heterosexuals here in the United Snakes. (Oddly enough, Iran says there are no 'mos in Iran to persecute their heteros, having apparently taken care of that problem through hangings. Don't give Pastor Rick any ideas.) It may already have started, but prepare yourselves for a fit of fury from the fascists about this:
The message will be broadcast on Channel 4 Thursday evening as an alternative to the traditional Christmas television and radio address from Queen Elizabeth.
That should be good for about five yrs. of the finest outrage at the Beeb as "appeasers" & "race traitors." It probably won't be too much longer until someone on the right calls for nuking Europe just to keep the whiteys from all being raped, sold into slavery or whatever other pathetically masochistic fantasies of authoritarianism the conservative mind indulges in. Pathetic exit line from Ahmadinejad:
"The prerequisite to this change is a change in goals, intentions and directions. If tyrannical goals are repackaged in an attractive and deceptive package and imposed on nations again, the people, awakened, will stand up against them."
Please. "The people" (world-wide, here, there & everywhere) are in a coma. If they did awaken, it would be a medical/psychological miracle. And they still wouldn't stand up for or against squat.
