LET’S ditch THE ICK
Around 500 AD, Romans were split down the middle, some loving Isis, others Jesus.
Equal competition, right? Sweet Isis in one corner, sweet Jesus in the other?
This was a boxing match between teams, not individuals: In one corner, Isis backed by sweet Horus, in the other, sweet Jesus backed by Ick, the God of Abraham.*
Total sweetness versus sweet Ick.
Unfortunately, the Romans went with Ick (of course, the game was rigged; eventually, if you worshipped anything but Ick, emperors sliced, diced and de-headed you).
And today, like pitiful pups, over half the world slavers and drools over Ick, the dude who sees women as dopey dunderheads and suggests sassy kids should be salted, peppered and eaten for lunch.
Isn’t it time we ditched Ick and took up again with warm, loving deities like Isis?
* Because Jehovah is a "... petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully” (Richard Dawkins), he totally swamps Jesus out.
