For God's sake

Those of you who read my blog on a regular basis will have appreciated by now that I'm not too fond of organised religion. So you'll appreciate how I feel about the dude from the Christian Voice organisation, Stephen Green, who has complained about the atheist messages on some buses around the country at the moment on the grounds that they contravene rules on substantiation and truthfulness - and he appears to be serious.

It's difficult to know where to start with this criticism. The hypocrisy, the arrogance, the parochial mind numbing refusal by Christians to even consider they may be wrong is almost incomprehensible. And the fact that religious types appear to be the only group of people with the latitude to ignore rules on prejudice and freedom of speech really gets on my friggin tits.

I'd normally take some pain killers and look at some porn to release more endorphins when I read stuff like this, you know, just try and ignore it, but I like the fact that the Christians are getting their knickers in a twist over this because the more they do the more their narrow-mindedness and nonsensical arguments will be called in question.

Stephen needs to appreciate that no one is saying here that God definitely does not exist - hence the inclusion of the word "probably." And he also desperately needs to appreciate that just because we don't yet have scientific real life evidence of how everything came about, it does mean that the as yet unexplained must be the work of God.

The arrogance displayed by Christians is staggering. Absolutely staggering. To absolutely point blankly refuse to accept that they may be wrong is astonishing really when you consider what exactly it is their beliefs entail.

If you rolled a toilet roll out along the ground as a representation of the total arrogance of your basic Christian, by comparison a Premier League footballer's arrogance wouldn't even cover a whole square. Ashley Cole's arrogance for example, would just about cover the jagged perforated edge at the beginning of the first square.

Christian's chill the fuck out. You can't seriously expect some dude at the advertising standards agency to rule on the probability of God's existence. And you ceraintly don't want to offer up the Bible as exhibit A when you're making your case. If I'm going to hell because of my reluctance to accept that God made everything then just let me burn. I don't mind honest.
