Well, podners, want more proof that the YAJ are burning with secret hatred for each other, and will soon wipe each other off the planet? (If you’ve been visiting this blog, you know that Yaj are followers of the god Yahweh-Allah-Jehovah.)

Two days ago, the movie star Mel Gibson, a very famous Yaj indeed, was caught driving drunk.

Apparently Mr. G. delivered a “… profanity-laced, anti-Semitic tirade to a sheriff's officer,” stating, among other things that “Jews are responsible for all the wars in history!”

A few years ago, you’ll recall, Gibson was so smitten and bitten by Jehovah that he made a movie called The Passion of Christ.

I ask you, what would a Martian think of our dear Yaj? How about “They’ll slaughter each other soon, leaving the earth to sane people”?

(From Anne over at The Gods Are Bored):

Anne: …. Well, Danu, it's customary for pissed off gods and goddesses to threaten disaster if they're not satisfied with the human race. Are you of that ilk?

Danu: I'm here trying to save you, not smite you. Smiting is officially censured by the Intergalactic Federation of Gods and Goddesses (IFG&G).

Anne: If that's the case, how come so many gods and goddesses (I'm thinking of at least one notable) smite with reckless abandon?

Danu: Deities who smite are not officially recognized by the IFG&G. They can't even buy membership cards. Some have tried....

Anne: Returning to our central topic. You are the Celtic Goddess of Wind (among other things, including creation of the world). Do you think it's blustery enough here in Amerika to get us all lit up [with wind power versus unrenewable energy sources]?

Danu: Lit up like Rush Limbaugh on vacation in the Dominican Republic.

Anne: Some people say the big windmills are an eyesore. I'm thinking particularly now of the rich folks on Martha's Vineyard who successfully lobbied (there's that word again) to keep a windmill farm from being planted offshore where they could just barely see it.

Danu: I'd better go. I'm being tempted to smite. But you see, I did the smart thing. I set the world in motion and then gave humans free will instead of that original sin and Grace of God malarky. If your species doesn't do the right thing, you can't blame me for your trip down the tubes.

Anne: A wise Goddess indeed. And congratulations on regaining a substantial praise and worship team. It's growing all the time! I'm proud to be in your camp.

Danu: It's a pleasure having you. Now you'd better bop downstairs. Your daughter left a notebook on your altar to my daughter, Queen Brighid the Bright.

Anne: And I can't smite her for it?

Danu: Make her fold the laundry and weed the garden.

Anne: She'll consider that being smited.

Danu: Then you just tell her that, in order to fit into the pure definition of godly smite, there's got to be unpleasant boils, an invading army, purchase by slave traders, a plain old savage beating, or being stoned to death....

Anne: I hear you. So, is there any veracity at all to this Left Behind business?

Danu: I don't mean to sling mud, but I have jars of jam older than the team that cooked up Left Behind….”

Introducing THE GLORIOUS Yaj!

In commenting on today’s second post, eruvande says she’s not sure Yahweh, Allah and Jehovah are really the same god (just for fun, let’s call him “Yaj”). So I’ve chased down a list of the ways these three “different” deities are as alike as peas in a pod:

All three love war.
All three are violently jealous.
All three proudly admit they are violently jealous.
All three will chop your head off if you worship any other god but them.
All three say slavery is fine and dandy.
All three say women are evil and dirty.
All three allow men mistresses and multiple wives.
All three allow male priests only, no women.
All three say sex is dirty.
All three demand adulterers be stoned to death.
All three say human bodies are evil.
All three say pleasure is evil.
All three love hierarchy – men first, animals last.
All three approve of dictatorship only, never democracy.
All three have the same cast of characters in their ‘stories.’
All three solve problems with warfare and violence.
All three are called “Abrahamaic” deities.
All three were born out of the same primitive desert religion.
All three reside in the heavens, out of reach of humans.
All three have long, white beards (well, maybe I should check the sources on this last one….)

And there you have him: the vainglorious, violent, pig-headed, primitive, polygynous, war-loving, woman-hating, slavery-loving, sex-hating, body-hating YAJ!!! Isn’t he just cute as the dickens? Couldn’t you just chuck him under his hairy little chin? Isn’t he just everything you want your kids to become?!?

Be sure to tell me if I've left out any of Yaj's sterling, godly qualities.

And hey all you christians, muslims and jews: I love ya! So get this dude outa your lives, 'cause he's a bum. All he's done is make you fight each other (not to mention the rest of us) for the past 2000 years. Chuck him, my friends, chuck him and give all of us -- and yourselves -- a big, fat break.
thnx to kuzma for the fine fotos of Yaj



It’s good, occasionally, to keep track of your enemies. Besides, sometimes they have delicious ideas. Take, for example, conservative talk-show host Laura Ingraham.

A few days ago I was out driving in a borrowed car (mine was sideswiped and is in the shop), and accidentally tuned into old Laura. Verrrrrry interesting….. Old Laura thought perhaps Muslims are unable to create and keep a democracy afloat (to be fair, sometimes she caught herself and said “fundamentalist Muslims”).

What Ms. Ingraham failed to mention, however, is that christians -- who are now running her Republican Party and therefore our country -- worship the very same god Muslims do: allah/jehovah/yahweh. (Go HERE for more on this.) So I say to Ms. Laura, it's not only muslims but christians too (bless their souls) who are empty of what it takes to keep a democracy afloat. To survive, a democracy needs people gifted in questioning authority. And what christians/muslims learn -- before they’re even dropped from the womb -- is, NEVER to question authority.

What happens if a christian/muslim/jew questions allah/jehovah/yahweh? It’s not pretty: For muslims, death by stoning. For christians -- up until the early 1900s at least -- death by stoning, drowning, burning, or torture. And today? For those who question god’s “authority” (gays, lesbians, adulterers, disobedient kids, and abortion-getters), today’s christian reconstructionists want the death penalty (electrocution, presumably). (Go HERE for more on this.)

Allah/jehovah/yahweh is an autocrat and a dictator: unless you do what he says, all hell breaks loose. When he says jump, you say How High, and all that stuff. There’s no trial by jury – Dictator allah/jehovah/yahweh makes all decisions. There’s no freedom of the press: if christians had their way, would the koran or torah be taught alongside the bible in public schools?


Think about it: American democracy did not come from allah/jehovah/yahweh. Democracy has never come from allah/jehovah/yahweh. As the previous post points out, the founding fathers did not worship allah/jehovah/yahweh. Furthermore, it seems obvious to me that American democracy came from the Iroquois – who worshipped not allah/jehovah/Yahweh but the Earth Mother and the Great Spirit. (Go HERE for more on this.)

And even if you think we owe our democracy to the ancient Greeks, guess what? The Greeks didn’t worship allah/jehovah/yahweh either. The ancient Greeks were descendants of the Goddess-worshiping Minoans (and northern patriarchals who to a great extent destroyed much of the power of the old Minoan Goddesses).

Democracy can’t come from christians. As most of you know, “democracy” comes from the Greek “kratia” rule by, and “demos” the people. Rule by the people. Christians believe not in rule by the people, but in rule by jehovah. So christians can’t help it: they’re taught to crush democracy, drown it, and then flush it down the toilet.

Anyway, thanks, Laura Ingraham, for pointing out that the people running your Republican Party – and our country -- are probably doing demolition-derby on our democracy.

I know my Christian readers are going to be brutally bereaved by this, but I feel it my duty to disabuse them of the notion that America’s founding daddies loved them over all the rest of us.

The truth is, America’s Founding Fathers were not Bible-thumping Christians; they weren’t even Christians at all. They were Deists.

Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, etc. did not worship Jehovah. They did not believe in Jesus. They did not ache for America to be a Christian country. The thought of Christians ruling America did not give them secret joy. [My guess is that the Founding Daddies didn’t even like Christians; a prize to anyone finding a source proving this.]

The … founding fathers of our nation were not Bible-believing Christians; they were deists…. The supreme God of the Deists removed himself entirely from the universe after creating it. [Deists] believed that he assumed no control over it, exerted no influence on natural phenomena, and gave no supernatural revelation to [humans].… Deists did not believe in the virgin birth, divinity, or resurrection of Jesus, the efficacy of prayer, the miracles of the Bible, or even the divine inspiration of the Bible.

“…[F]ounding fathers who espoused Deism were George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Ethan Allen, James Madison, and James Monroe.” Go HERE for more.
Also, go to the Library of Congress website and type in “deist” for more info on the founding daddies and their deism.

When I asked the Crone, "If the Goddess is the life force of creation; if she is everywhere, in everything, where is that which is not the Goddess?"

She said, "In the nowhere."

From "The Goddess Is a Verb."

HOW ABOUT A Co-wife (OR 2)?

CHRISTIAN FAMILY VALUES (straight from the Holy Book):

RULE #1: The proper Christian family contains more than one wife -- preferably a couple hundred or more -- and at least one mistress:

"After he left Hebron, David took more concubines and wives in Jerusalem, and more sons and daughters were born to him." 2 Samuel 5:13

King Solomon had 700 wives and 300 concubines: “He had seven hundred wives of royal birth and three hundred concubines ...." 1 Kings 11:3

King Solomon's son Rehoboam had 18 wives and 60 concubines. 2 Chronicles 11:21

"If [a man] marries another woman, he must not deprive the first one of her food, clothing and marital rights." Exodus 21:10

"If a man has two wives, and he loves one but not the other, and both bear him sons...." Deuteronomy 21:15

And in the New Testament, Jesus sanctifies all this by saying: "Do not think I have come to abolish the Law (the Old Testament) or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them." (Matthew 5:17-18)

LET'S TAKE A VOTE: After they kill our abortion rights, d’ya suppose Christians'll go after monogamy next?


Yesterday, Phil Georg left a lovely comment, part of which was “… do you believe there's something inextricably dangerous about Christianity, even liberal Christianity?”

My answer is yes, Phil, I think Christianity and Islam – even liberal Christianity/Islam -- are inherently lethal. Liberal Christians/Muslims sock their stamps of approval onto books (bible/koran) backing war, torture and rape of the earth.* As a result, war, torture and rape of the earth are always available for use by radicals when times get tough.

When the Christian Inquisition began, were liberal Christians absent from Europe? No. Were they able to catch the runaway train? No: estimates are that the Church tortured and murdered up to 6 million. Are religious liberals absent now, as fundamentalist George Burning-Bush leads us into torture, murder, nuclear war and environmental death? No. Do you see liberals reining him in? I don’t. (Am I just looking in the wrong mouse holes?)

Phil: as long as intelligent people sanction holy books espousing war, torture, and rape of the earth, we will suffer war, torture and rape of the earth.

One of your chief enemies is a macabre group called – innocently enough – the ADF, or “Alliance Defense Fund.” (I strongly suspect "ADF" actually stands for something like “Alliance of Dimwits Fund.”)

The aim of the Alliance of Dimwits Fund is to turn the world into Christian Land. Their lair sits in Scottsdale, Arizona. Unfortunately, these big guys are loaded with money, which they’ve extorted from people terrified of “hell”. They’re using their millions like a hammer, trying to change U.S. law. They’re starting with things like making it legal to spew their hatred and bigotry in our public schools – whether we like it or not.

They’re hammering to change laws so they can stick giant crosses on our public lands, reminding us daily -- whether we like it or not -- of an ancient and starkly barbaric form of public execution called ‘crucifixion.’

They’re hammering to change our laws so hate-mongerers can follow women into abortion clinics, shrieking about how evil these women are for wanting control over their own bodies, and for depriving the world of more human flesh (as if the world needs more human flesh).

And if they get these laws passed, what next? Where does it end? Public execution of gays, gypsies, Wiccans and Jews? Why not?

By the way, if you smell James Dobson on this group, you’d be right. He’s a founder.

Go HERE to read the article in today’s Washington Post about this weasley, dangerous group.

Go HERE to check out one of their truly frightening blogs.

Go HERE to enter the Belly of the Beast Itself, the actual website of the Alliance of Dimwits.

Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin

Doncha love when Christians look right atcha, frown, and say “Love the sinner, hate the sin!”?

I read this as, “You are vastly inferior, but I am going to force myself to love you anyway.”

Here’s what I say: Ya gotta love Christians, hate Christianity. Love Muslims, hate Islam. Love Hindus, hate Hinduism.

All three are slaughtering religions. But that doesn’t mean people in them are unlovable. They’ve just been hoodwinked.
Thnx, dslis, for the great Draculanian foto

TRAPPED by Jesus

Anonymous visited yesterday and was confused by my post. If I don't believe in the christian bible, she said, why did I use it to persuade my mother against christianity? If Anon is confused, maybe others are too. So I'll try to explain again.

First, the christian bible holds some good things. However, these are outweighed by a whale-load of bad things. Throughout history and around the globe, the bible has been used to decimate hundreds of beautiful, peaceful human groups. It is one of the bloodiest WMD ever invented.

Second, the inventors of christianity were geniuses. Evil geniuses, but geniuses nonetheless. They fixed things so that once you're caught, it's almost impossible to escape their trap. For example, anyone showing you the evil in the bible is "the devil" (or the devil's possessing the person). Then they say, "If you listen to the devil, you'll be whisked to an underground torture chamber for forever." All this, of course, is a pile of half-witted, holy hogwash.

Third, one thing that helps christians escape the trap is pointing out the stupidities in their bible. Luckily, these stupidities run like a rancid river all through the book. For example, there are verses that tell you to stone to death stubborn kids and raped women. Others tell you bats are birds. (Take the May 28 Bible Quiz on this blog for these and other stupidities, and exactly where in the bible to find them.)

Fourth, I was using this "showing" tool with my mother, to try to free her of the trap she's in. The verse I gave her proved that Jesus is not a "Prince of Peace," but actually a hate-mongering, violence-pushing, destroyer of families and therefore entire human groups.

Fifth, if you love christians, you're obliged by human decency to help free them from the terrible trap they're in. The above is one way to do it.

Another NOTCH in the BUTT of His BOX-CUTTER

Just returned from a two-week road trip visiting family and friends out there in the wild blue yonder. While visiting my dear christian fundie mother, I handed her this verse from Matthew 10: “Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” (Jesus speaking, here.)

“See?!” I crowed. “Your Jesus pushes war, not peace!” Ma pulled out her Bible, read, and then said sadly, “It makes more sense if you read the verses around it.” She and I turned to other topics then, but when I got home I read those other verses:

34 "Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35 For I have come to turn a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother in law — 36 a man's enemies will be the members of his own household. 37 Anyone who loves his father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; anyone who loves his son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me….”

In case you didn’t “get” it, I’ll hit you over the head with it: I had unwittingly pushed my own mother into the part of her holy book that tells her to – what? “Take up the sword” against me, her daughter (because -- as the astute among you might have noticed -- I’m not a jesus follower)?

Is this really “The Prince of Peace” talking here? How’d he get that name if he says things like this? I hafta tell ya, this bible seems like one sick puppy of a book to me.

But my real question is this: Do you think the authors of this dweeby book meant that parents should literally “use a sword” against their own children? That children should literally slice up their parents? Or did they mean the sword as a metaphor?

The problem is, a sword is about as strong a metaphor as you bump into. People use swords for two things: to kill, and to beknight. And I don’t think this dude jesus was talking here about beknighting anybody.

So I don't see any way around it: The “Peace Prince” obviously preaches the murder of all family members who snub him.

This doubly concerns me, because my mother, who used to be completely sane, has gradually become nuttier for christ in direct proportion to the number of years she’s gone gaga over slick televangelists. For example, when she heard the bible says women musn’t speak in church, she actually went to her minister to ask if she should start clamming up after crossing the church threshold.

Way to go, Peace Prince! Another family broken apart, another notch to carve in the butt of your box cutter.
Thnx to estilete for the superb foto of one common version of the modern "first-world" blade weapon, aka the yellow-handled box cutter.
