Voting to impose religion

Many people want their religion imposed on the rest of us so badly that it's their only consideration.

It's why they vote and how they vote. Everything else is secondary, and liberty gets swept aside because it would mean people making choices- voluntarily, consensually, and without coercion- which would be against the religion's rules for its followers.

Of course, it doesn't matter at all whether the people whose liberty is being violated belong to that same religion or not. Everyone must obey "The One Way" regardless of anything else, and no matter whether "The One Way" respects liberty and rejects the initiation of force or embraces evil with the excuse that "it's what God demands".

It's Sharia Law, no matter which religion is pushing it. I find it rather vile and distasteful and think those pushing it should be ashamed and resisted in their attempts.



  1. I equate religion with personal moral beliefs. They are one and the same thing. A secular government, which we are supposed to have, but which we don't, enforce the religious/personal moral codes of some at the expense of others. The so-called war on drugs, for example. But also, in a town, or county, in Georgia, it was made illegal to sell (and buy?) sex toys for mere pleasure. These people call themselves Christians, but if they looked at their religious dogma through the lens of logic rather than emotion, then they would have to come to the conclusion that their, so-called all-knowing, almighty God created Satan knowing that "he" would be evil. Ergo, their god created evil. That would make their God a bit insane. And the last thing we need is an insane almighty being. We have enough national and world leaders like that. Oh wait. The Christian god concept is based on the old biblical kings: long hair and beards, flowing robes, sitting on a throne of gold and jewels.

  2. D M, you havent a clue..... and you just showed it... satan was absolutely NOT created as evil, he BECAME evil, there is a huge difference, Gods creations are made with a FREE WILL..... He is not to blame if one of them chooses wrong.

  3. Good points for the most part, the relationship between an individual and God is personal, not political. At the same time, I don't see Christians beheading people and gang-raping those who don't adhere to their religion. The Muslims aren't doing it in the U.S., but only because they don't have the power to do so yet. Jesus once said, "You will know them by their fruits," and the fruits of Islam are self-evident.

  4. Gimme that 'ol time religion, Jonestown '78.

  5. By chance, I found this one last night about Carl Jung, the psychologist:

    Jung stressed the importance of individual rights in a person's relation to the state and society. He saw that the state was treated as "a quasi-animate personality from whom everything is expected" but that this personality was "only camouflage for those individuals who know how to manipulate it",[53] and referred to the state as a form of slavery.[54][55][56][57] He also thought that the state "swallowed up [people's] religious forces",[58] and therefore that the state had "taken the place of God"—making it comparable to a religion in which "state slavery is a form of worship".[56] Jung observed that "stage acts of [the] state" are comparable to religious displays: "Brass bands, flags, banners, parades and monster demonstrations are no different in principle from ecclesiastical processions, cannonades and fire to scare off demons".[59] From Jung's perspective, this replacement of God with the state in a mass society led to the dislocation of the religious drive and resulted in the same fanaticism of the church-states of the Dark Ages—wherein the more the state is 'worshipped', the more freedom and morality are suppressed;[60] this ultimately leaves the individual psychically undeveloped with extreme feelings of marginalization.[61] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Jung#Views_on_the_state (bold added)

    Statism is a religion, logic doesn't work on its true believers, and even the agnostic minarchists still believe that we must all fall under its sharia and pay its jizya, and as for the taqiya of its priests...

    I should apologise to radical islamists including ISIS - the comparison with the religion of state is an exageration.

  6. There was a horrific series of events in Rotherham, England, by members of the Pakistani Muslim community. Here is an article about it. They'd do it in America if we let more of them in:
