When are we as supposedly a civilized country going to put an end to the religious oppression occurring in America? How long are citizens of America going to tolerate discrimination, racism, violence, ignorance, and stupidity that is evoked from these fraudulent religions: Christianity, Moslem, Mormonism, and any other backwater ideology masquerading as a "religion"?
The bible thumpers in Arizona are pressuring a despicable excuse for a governor, Jan Brewer, to veto the latest unconstitutional, hate-filled legislation allowing discrimination against LGBT individuals based on "religious" principles. The same type of crappy legislation has reared its ugly head in Kansas, Missouri, Georgia, and soon to come to other Red States. What this legislation does is allow the "convert" to claim that he/she's "religious-based life" is destroyed/degraded/endangered by "serving" a person whom they believe to be of LGBT-persuasion I as yet don't know how all LGBT'ers are identifiable. I mean I have never been able to determine when a Catholic priest is a homosexual, or when a Republican congressperson's child is a transvestite, or when I see a senator hanging around airport men's restrooms is a homo.
Now, obviously we as a people, you know the rest of us left who are intelligent, cannot ban this bullshit. It has been around thousands of years and is a key tool of the oppressor in his arsenal to conquer, subjugate, enslave, and rape and pillage a people. No, we cannot ban it without bringing all of the crazies out of the woodwork with their guns in one hand and their bible in the other. The solution is to tax these phony faiths. Let's say a corporate-level tax on church property outside a one-square block area, excluding schools. A corporate- level tax rate on income received that does not involve charity work, facility maintenance, and normal overhead (i.e no preachers with Rolls Royces). Why should the American taxpayer finance oppression in the name of any religion?
Oh, and no longer allow the federal government to fund or provide tax-breaks to faith-based charities, religious-based schools, religious-based programs of any kind.
Now, I realize and understand that this plan will never or is unlikely to come to fruition in America because of the toxic politics and hate. And also quite frankly, there is a lot of money to be made in religion-sphere. But just think how you would feel if a lobbyist from who knows where came to America and persuaded a future US Congress to pass a law outlawing single-hood, or whatever, like the religious frauds did in Uganda. Think about it!
