Love is something far more than desire for sexual intercourse; it is the principal means of escape from the loneliness which afflicts most men and women throughout the greater part of their lives.
In a civilized country…where denying equal human rights from others is recognized as abusive and oppressive…cruel religious fundamentalists try to circumvent common decency…and the direct instructions of their god, to “do unto others as they would like others to do unto them”…that is, a divine commandment to afford others the same equal rights that they wish to enjoy themselves…and instead claim a pretext of “religious freedom” in order to oppress and abuse others…when that action is the diametrically opposite action than what their god required of them, in writing…!
The ontological fallacy of expecting a light at the end of the tunnel, well, that’s what the preacher sells, same as a shrink. Always a buck to be had doing that, and it’s such a desperate sense of entitlement, isn’t it?
See, the preacher encourages your capacity for illusion. Then he tells you it’s a fucking virtue.
"Surely this is all for me… Me? Me, me, me. I. I. I’m so fucking important. I’m so fucking important, then, right?"
