I’ve been accused of being a hate monger of x-tianity by a few folks. Not surprising to say the least. The x-tian persecution complex is based in the idea that anyone who disagrees with their dogma is an enemy of the skydaddy. The “woe is me” mentality runs rampant in the x-tian religion. But, what my critics fail to realize is that my diatribes are focused primarily on x-tianity because it is the dominant religion in this country. So, to show them I don’t discriminate between religions and denominations, I present to you the true story of Ibrahim. Ibrahim was a Somali. He was convicted of adultery by a local Islamist court, and sentenced to death by stoning. He’s the latest victim of religious history.

“But, RJ… This isn’t Christianity!” No. It isn’t right now. But if folks like James Dobson and his ilk get their way, it will be. The irony is that THIS BRUTALITY IS what x-tianity is based upon… what ALL RELIGION IS BASED UPON! If you don’t believe me, then you haven’t read your fuckin’ bible! This IS what fundamentalists want! And, they want it for anyone who doesn’t fall into lock step with their skydaddy dogma.
Religion is barbaric, no matter what the flavor or appearance. And, if you, the reader can’t grasp this fact…
“Nothing short of great Civil War of Values rages today throughout North America. Two sides with vastly differing and incompatible world-views are locked in a bitter conflict that permeates every level of society. …the struggle now is for the hearts and minds of the people. It is a war over ideas. And someday soon, I believe, a winner will emerge and the loser will fade from memory. For now, the outcome is very much in doubt.”
– James Dobson, Children at Risk, pages 19–20
