Nothing in this blog can be believed. If you think that anything in this blog is true or factual, you'll need to verify it from another source. Do you understand? No? Then read it again, and repeat this process, until you understand that you cannot sue me for anything you read here. Also, having been sucked into taking part in the mass-murder of more than 3 million Vietnamese people on behalf of U.S. Big Business "interests", I'm as mad as a cut snake (and broke) so it might be a bit silly to try to sue me anyway...

pssst... wanna join the church of jesus?

I was witnessing a debate in which a dude was getting stuck into the evils of Christianity in reply to another dude's ranting about the evils of Islam. So I decided to contribute my rant to that conversation:

Why are we leaving out the rabid Zionists who dispossessed and killed so many Palestinians in order to obtain their own Lebensraum. Are we afraid of their rat-bag accusations of "anti-semitism"? They were fanatical killers too.

All three Western religions worship the same god. It all goes back to their common superstition - the belief in a non-existent god brought about by the clever mind-control rituals their preachers and parents subject them to.

Their god is nothing more than a figment of the imagination of a bunch of ignorant and deluded men some 4000 years ago. Men who were murderous land-thieving misogynistic bigoted control-freaks, and who conjured-up a god to give unquestionable authority to their dubious ideas and even more dubious actions. End of story.

Today, followers of these religions are still hypnotised into believing that they're the "chosen people" and that their culture is the superior one because it is ordained by their god. Utter expansionist control-freak stuff. And very dangerous stuff too. Millions, if not billions have already died in the perpetuation of this superstitious twaddle. And I'm sick of it! Absolutely and totally sick of it! No more!!!! Finito!!!!

And I'm sure if Jesus were around today that's what he'd say, but that's just my interpretation of his teachings. That's my Jesusness. So, who wants to join the Church of Jesus? (No mention of a Christ or a god you'll notice. That's entirely intentional.)

We at the Church of Jesus focus only on the values we believe Jesus stood for: Freedom of speech, love, forgiveness, tolerance, socialism, communism, etc. In this day and age, we believe Jesus would feel it's time to tell the masses that this god business was just something he had to give lip-service to, way back then, on pain of death, but that it's really just authoritarianist twaddle, and always has been.

"If you meet God on the road, kill him!" (Something Master Jesus might say if he were around today as a Zen master.)

You want to know what the Mother of All Conspiracies is? It's the God Business. And it's a business in whose name they keep killing and dispossessing others, and a very big business it is too. Huge chunks of territory and trillions of dollars are involved in the god business. And then there's the arms industry generated by the machinations of the god business. Very big business. So big in fact that if you were a business man, you'd be mad not to believe in the God Business...

And now we have a Judeo-Christian war on Islam. Another Cruisade. And they made it look like Islam started it. Millions will die. Why? I think it's because Judeo-Christian "interests" want Islamic oil and control of Islamic territories in strategic preparations for a war with China.

I believe Judeo-Christian Big Business has absolutely no intention of letting China get up off its economic knees and the only way to stop them is to invent a pretext to go to war against them, so they can be bombed back into the economic stone age. And they'll make it look like China started it. Hundreds of millions will die.

What's happening is nothing less than World War III and we're getting sucked into it by religious fanatics in America and Israel manipulating politics and Big Business for their own ends. We're witnessing the crime of the millennium. And you? What about you? Will you be an accomplice, or a whistleblower?

Wake up world - before it's too late!

The end is closer than you think...

Gerry, you are so right on again. I've often kicked myself over not becomming a preacher or the like. I mean, let's face it, being a P.R. man for god is the most secure job in the world. If a nutural disaster kills 99.5% of a country or areas population, what do you hear? "THANK GOD! some people were spared!" Yeah, thanks alot, pal. Talk about your "no loss" situations.

By the way, I think that the best piece of evidence that there is no god comes done to the idea that if there were such a supreme being, he would have blinked his eye and gone "BANG!" again by now.

Posted by an American "angel of peace" for Gerry. I always thought Leonard Cohen had it right:

Jesus was a sailor when
He walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching
From a lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him
He said "All men shall be sailors then,
until the sea shall free them."
But he himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath our wisdom
Like a stone.

Thanks, D.

I used to love Cohen. That song, and Marianne (sp?) were my favourites. But I haven't listened to any Cohen in about 25 years. Maybe I should get a CD or two of his. Then again, maybe not. Couple years ago a guy I knew on the net suicided. He worshipped Cohen. What do you think of this blog, D? Pretty crazy, eh? :-)

You're doing the right thing, Gerry. Keep raging, spray it all over us if you have to. We'll be there to catch you when you fall...that's what it's all about.

You mean I've still got further to fall? I thought I'd pretty much hit rock bottom...

Seems like you said it yourself, Gerry -- you are "very close". And you're right, we all have our arms wrapped around you even now, as you trip and stumble -- and spray everyone you know and love -- and strangers too, I suspect. I too, am a stranger -- I have never even been "close enough to see your face". So, you have the right to tell me I don't know what I'm talking about, and I'm willing to accept that.

All that aside, I feel moved to respond to you, Gerry, from a place beyond self-defense, a deeper place, that isn't fooled by the mask of rage; realizing the well of disillusionment, pain and who knows what else your anger springs from. How did you get into my heart so fast? Maybe it is because you "got" Camo, and didn't judge me as some people are judging me. (I've even had a few people try to brand a scarlet "A" on my chest! Unbelievable to miss the point like that...) But really, it is not hard to answer why I respond to you like I do: It is because you're fu--'ing dead on, you have a right to be angry, and it is only fair, as a human (and as an American) to try to be there for you, if you let me, and so far you have...but I know that that can change in a heartbeat. And if it does (when it does?), I'll still linger on the fringes, wishing you well, retaining a very strong faith and belief that your heart will triumph over your rage. Because that is one VERY STRONG heart.
Am I crazy? Of course I am! Okay, I need to say it out loud now: The reason I see hope in every word you write, Gerry,is because you are engaging your anger, taking it on, facing it eyeball to eyeball, and sharing it with the world. What courage! What heart! That is a beautiful thing to do, and most people won't ever go there -- IT IS A JUNGLE IN THERE, right? I have faced my "jungles," too. That is the kindred part here, the part that crosses over nationalities, ethnicities, religions and more.

That's what I really believe, Gerry -- and I don't believe in God, I don't believe in Jesus, and I am not flitting through the flowers reciting poetry to the wind. Okay, well, maybe I DO flit sometimes, in fact, as often as I can, but heck, we all need to put aside the ugliness sometimes and make love with abandon in the long, tall grass on the edge of the sand, with the ocean pounding the edge of reason just a few feet away...right? Love,D

From Sgt Hassna (of Camouflage & Lace fame) --- you are not alone, Gerry:

Edwin Star's song, "War, What Is It Good For", was straight to the point. I got my come-uppance in May 1970, watching the nightly lie on the tube. Richard (I am not a crook) Nixon, announced to the world that US forces had invaded Cambodia to wreck the supply bases of the V.C.(Viet Cong), and N.V.A.(North VietNamese Army) for the first time. I sat straight up in my chair and told my wife Cindy that that was a lie. My unit, 1st. Bde. 101st Airborne Div., had been in the same exact place in 1967. There's one lie, more to follow. Then a few days later, Kent State, Ohio. My feelings were, they have stepped over the line and will gun down students, thinking that they (students) will shut up and go home. Kind of like throwing gasoline on a fire, then being surprised when it blows up in your face. Which is just what it did; all over the country, campuses were in chaos.

The same thing happened at Jackson State, Mississippi, barricaded students were fired on by troops of the Mississippi National Guard. Not much coverage on Jackson State though, it is mainly black students. All this sent me over the edge. I had, for about a year after I was out if the Army, just tried to fit in at home in the S.F. Bay Area. That was over now. I quit my job at the computer center for Kaiser Permanente, one that was leading to a promising career. When asked by my boss why I was quitting and is there something that could be done? I said No, I like you, the job, my co-workers, the whole thing. But if I work here, I pay taxes, if I pay taxes, I pay for the bombs dropped on S.E. Asia. I was a participant in that war, now I am paying for it through taxes, and that, I will not do any more, period! I will not participate from now on. Turned and walked out the door. Cindy did not take this very well; she left, and took the kid with her. Can't say as I blame her, I was not a nice person anymore, sleepless nights, nightmares, trauma, stress, startled reactions, and a bad attitude. She was also about to have another kid, so her decision was sound and the only thing to do. Lost everything, family, home, job, the whole thing. Why? Because I saw the lie of VietNam and it was too much to bear.I put a back pack on and went on a walk-about for over a year. It was not till the early `90s, in the midst of the Persian Gulf build-up, that I was reunited with my son and daughter, Jeff, and Julie."

Thanks D. I'll respond more later, but right now I need to know who posted Sgt Hassna's story here. Was it you?

Yes, it was me. That first long posting did not show up (I think for hours), so I thought I had deleted it somehow. So, frustrated, I sent the Hassna thing to you, thinking it might say the same thing in a different way.

By the way, we have no contact info for Hassna. And I know a number of people who used to be close with him. He will turn up one day, and hopefully he'll have an email address. The address on the Sonoma County Free Press website is not good -- and the people there don't know how to contact him, either. Willie LOVES Hassna's writing, can't wait to meet him.

Thanks, D, for posting Steve's story. I went to that site and read some of his other stuff, and he's an almost identical nut to me. Like we both fell off the same wheel, rolled in the ditch for some distance, and came to rest in the exact same place.

Would be interesting to see him pop up somewhere.

Thanks for all your kind thoughts, D.

Hey! We're talking to each other! THIS HAS TO STOP! :-)
