The Abusive Mentality Of Nigerians

In Nigeria, a husband material is a man that has some money.

Once your wallet is capable of sponsoring the average Nigerian lady to the saloon, own a nice car that commutes her with pride to public functions and can sustain meal on the dining table, then you are husband material.

If you like, look like a halloween conspiracy in the flesh, nobody gives a heck whether your looks can make a lion pee in the pants, if you are a package of all the drunkards on earth, liar of all liars, whether your first, second and last talent is womanizing, nobody gives a damn. So far you secure the first credentials above, then you are the national glory of a good husband material.

Then, the wife material of a Nigerian yardstick is simply a woman with good looks, even if it is of average assessment; one who mentions God in every sentence, belongs to a “bible believing church”. Even as a Nigerian, I still have no idea what religious Nigerians mean by a “Bible believing church”, is there is any church that disbelieves the bible?

Also, if she is a church worker, especially in the chior or ushering department, then she has graduated to a “God-fearing woman.” But that is not all. If she possesses the attitude of servitude wrapped with silence and tolerance for any bullshit a man inflicts on her, then it means that “she is God-sent”. If she takes it further to the level of not demanding any co-operation from her husband for whatsoever he does, accepts any punches he throws at her and will never in her sad life know what divorce means. Then she is a “virtuous woman.”

98 percent of Nigerian families will never ask a groom about his medical history and condition. Nobody even entertains the thought of questioning the mentality and psychology of the man who seeks to marry their daughter. “Are you a wife beater?” “Do you have health concerns that we should know about?” “Are you a drunkard?” “How bad is your temperament?” Nigerian bride families do not ask that. What you will hear them ask is first of all “What do you do for a living?” That is the foremost concern of a Nigerian family; the income status of the intended groom. Materialism over mentality is the priority trend of Nigerians. It is not their fault, they are mostly poor. Poverty exists in the mind. Anyone that seeks to value and respect a person base on his financial status is a poor man irrespective of his financial status. That is a poverty mentality and most Nigerian families suffer from it.

If the groom is financially buoyant and eventually weds the groom, and afterwards by reason of domestic conflict, the wife then runs to her immediate family to report abuse or the manifestation of devilry by her husband at home, the wife’s family will be the first to chide her and impose on her to tolerate whatever impishness her husbands exhibits and that in fact other women are waiting for an opportunity to replace her. That she should definitely see such misbehavior by her spouse as a blessing in disguise. That the exhibition of rascality is a transition of love. They in turn support abuse on their child simply because of a pittance their in-law shower them. That is poverty! Very few families in Nigeria rise up to caution their son-in-law against their ward or press for a divorce. The few who do are the educated and knowledgeable ones against the large number of poor-minded wealth worshippers.

Nigerians entertain abuse. They do not understand what freedom is and they do not desire it as well for themselves and others who want it. Abuse is first of all entertained domestically before it transcends to the national life. That is why Nigerians will entertain a rude and abusive boss and work than to resign. They will see nothing wrong about a pastor who slapped a woman on camera. That is the reason they will entertain keeping polithiefcians who rape and loot their treasury than to clamour for change. Nigerians have a serious abusive disorder (SAD) and it has now become a national repertoire in their subconsciouness.

Aren’t they wonderful? Can you see how awesome the brilliance of these people are? We must be people of great vision.

Dear Nigerians, Abuse is not normal as rape, theft and thuggery are immoral, abnormal and criminal. Do not entertain it! You deserve a better and humane treatment and others deserve it from you also.

To Hell With God’s Mercies!!!

The greatest turn-off to me in any human being whatsoever is a blatant disrespect and insensitivity towards the lives of other people. Once you do not regard human life as precious, priceless, powerful and holy, sorry you have earned not just my irritation but hatred.

And this is why I primarily hate religion- not their stupidity; I can put up with that, at least I have met more stupid people than the ones I consider brilliant. Not their hypocrisy- everyone can be hypocritical especially when their interest is at stake. Not their lies and delusion- you can stuck up with your garbage for all I care. But the one thing that pisses me off is their blatant insensitivity for lives and humanity which is what drove me to abandon religion. And I can abandon anything that is so in whatever way, even if it is a member of my family. Unless of course I am unaware of it. Yes, I am religious with my value for human life.

The only people I support to be killed are those who kill others and want to kill others. Yes, you deserve to die of you kill another human for no apparent reason, worst of all for religious, criminal or mob purposes. If such a person is brought before me, I’ll shoot him, because I know he can do same to me or any other person, so disappearing the vermin is for the greater good and my security. Yes, I said so and that I concur. So terrorists ought to be killed and eliminated for such waton bloody desecration of human life. Period.

But that is not where I’m driving at. It is something else.

When I was a child, during devotions I recall when those bigger than me use to say:

“Father, thank you for giving us life, for there are others who have died and are in the mortuary. We are not better than them, but for your mercies and blah blah blah”

As a young lad, I was vexed with disturbance on the meaning of such lines. “How can you say you are not better than them, when they are dead and you are alive and then say its God’s mercy that kept you?”

As young as I was then, can’t recall how old I was, but I could be picked up easily from the ground by an eleven year old, I did not find such utterance reasonable. So I kept mute with my confusion for fear of being chided, since I had a long history of suffering my elders around me with vexatious philosophy and questioning. “Imoh shut-up and stop asking questions”, they will thunder at this Son of David. So I kept quite and suffered with it within my young mind. I was a precocious child.

Even when I was a Christian, I never uttered those lines in prayers, it seemed very cold-hearted to me even though I believed a sky man managed the affairs of the blue planet. I simply said “Thank you Lord for keeping me”. I refused to do the mass utterance of comparism of tragedy and eruption of joy based on the predicament that befell others. I never did such as a christian.

There was a time my bus was attacked along Lagos-Shegamu highway and I fled into the bush, which led to the armed robbers pursuit of a treasure. While searching for me, I lay emotionless in the thick bushes and the armed man in search of me was a boot inch close to my head. He lost faith and turned around with his gun and machete. It was a close call to death, but I was lucky.

On passing the message to my pastor then, he pressured me to give a testimony that others may have be killed but I got away for God’s grace. I was unhappy to hear this because on my way back from Lagos on the same Shegamu express road, laid the body of a lifeless man. It could be me, why glory over another’s bad luck and mishap? If God’s grace could not reach him, then I have no reason to be grateful to one who could have extended same grace to the lifeless man on the same road but chose not to. It only means one day if he disappoints me with his so grace and appoints same to another, another will glory in my mishap, so no thanks.

“Sorry pastor, I’m not giving such a testimony” I told him on phone. The rest the say is history. To hell with God’s mercies!

“Dear Man, You Embarrass me”- God

In those days when men were highly superstitions, they gave in to anything to explain that which they were incapable of explaining by the standards of their ignorance at the time. Religion, came in for the rescue; to explain all things- the causes of things, their effects and even more promising and saultry ones. As such, religion became physics, biology, chemistry, medicine, astrophysics, Geography, astronomy, and even social sciences like Government, law, economics, sociology and a lot more.

Yes, men were satisfied with such standard of reasoning and explanation of things. Thus, the earth was flat, the rainbow is a bow of a covenant between God and man, God lives in the sky, the bat is a bird, epilepsy is a demonic attack, the sun moves, the stars hang on the sky, below the earth lies a torture durgeon for evil doers, sky resident winged beings called angels exist, fancy creatures like dragons, unicorns are for real, that God(s) are of two classes (the original and the fakes); the original is good and the fakes are bad to men, and there exist a life after death etc just to name a few.

Gradually, they graduated to explain the causes of events on earth. That suffering came from a pair of naked couple who had an interview with a talking snake in a garden on the subject of a forbidden fruit. That snakes crawl because of a meted punishment for a chat with a naked woman which led the consumption of a fruit, that the reason why women suffer painful labour is not far from same meted punishment but they forget that all mammals experience painful labour. They said the reason why men are born with some form of disabilities is because of the sins of their fore-parents.

They even went into the preference cuisine, with declarations that the consumption of certain meats is sinful because such animals are unclean, however, created by a clean God. That animals like cats, owl, dogs etc are most patronized by vile spirits for nefarious exercise.

However, they took it further to assign the division of the human race into a ” we versus them” contest. The “We”, are for those who believe and patronize the tenets of their fancies and the others were bashed into an office with label such as “sinner”, “infidel”, “unbeliever”, “devil”, “deceiver, etc. The “we versus them” creed was adopted to heart that men kill and are willingly to separate from their brothers simply on the ground of disparity of their acclaimed faith, but on the other hand, they waiver themselves as peaceful, good natured, reasonable, charitable and worthy of emulation. While they engaged in such, others equally concorted their own version of explanation of things and they all called it Faith, Truth or Belief. Men of faith, they called themselves. Respect my beliefs they never fail to chorus, but their belief is of the speciality of bloodbath, division, hatred, bigotry and accusations against all others but themselves. This, they say it is reasonable. The race of drumming affection for things they have no proof of except quotations from fancy books which they manufactured and finger as holy and not of finite volition.

However, this same literature of over-rated importance is fraught with all manner of absurdities and contradictions. Miraculously, they see them not even if it is pointed into their faces. “Die!” They chorus against the man who differ or loquaciously spots a gaffe. Men now love that which is a lie and are willing to slaughter their kind for the sake of literature. Love of God, they label it. And if you have no God, they chorus foolery but no evidence of wisdom is found whatsoever in their conduct of affairs or literature. Over-rated self importance and sheer cold heartedness wrapped with the cloak of brazen irrationality to all matters is their style. Man is a Fool, sayest the writer. What other class of beings destroy their species and environment because of his patronage of a being that cannot be shown to all? “You shame me oh man, for I exist only in your head”, says the man in the Sky, “Keep your own in peace, conduct your affairs for I have no interest of function with thee”, the sky-daddy says, but man heareth not….. What a foolish creature!

Why Feminism Is A Threat

I think the society over the years and centuries is responsible for the spoilt psychology of the male with respect to the rules of gender engagement.

Misogynism is a transferred mentality mostly from the social consent of the society. “Women ought to do this and this”, “a GOOD woman remains married”, “the divorced woman is a bad and uncultured woman”, “a good wife tolerates whatever her husband does”, etc these and many other social mental structure is responsible for arousing and raising men of fractured reasoning which subsequently tailors the misogynistic personality.

Once the society is embedded in the mentality that a woman ought to take whatever a man throws at her in a relationship, and the male is groom to think he is not in a position to maintain decorum and chivalry in his relationship, such a society is run by fractured minds.

The African society is wrapped in a social structure where a woman is expected and insisted to remain in an abusive marriage. Divorce on the part of a woman on whatever ground is received with a frowned face at the woman. “He is your husband, whatever he did to you, you must tolerate it”, “How can you leave your home for another woman to come into your house?””The bible says a woman must submit to her husband”, “divorce is a sin, etc” are just the few lines they recite to the aggrieved woman.

Nobody blames the man. The man is shielded from whatever ridicule and blame and the abused and aggrieved woman is heap with all faults and accusations on earth from insubordination to harlotry. Everyone is on the side of the man including God, as he is invoked against the woman for erring against the divine arrangement of congeniality. God is never angry with the man who abused his wife to divorce but the woman who divorces to seek a healthy state of mind is irritated by God, says the African society.

Others invoke lines like “What about the kids?” “It is not healthy for the kids”, “Tolerate it for the sake of the kids”, etc. The truth is that when kids are raised in a family structure where the husband abuses the wife and the wife still remains, they will in turn grow to repeat the culture of abuse or enduring abuse in their adult life. It is better a woman divorces an abusive marriage for the sake of the mental fettle of the children. When such kids grow into adulthood, they will hate abusive relationship because their mother was a victim and they will in turn not replicate it in their adult relationships, even soughting after a successful married life as against the one they grew up to experience.

Condoning abuse is teaching same to kids who will grow up with such tolerance of cruelty as moral and normative. It is this reason that feminism and women rights is seen as a threat to the misogynist male because it suffocates the core of the mentality that women ought to be recipients of all sorts of garbage thrown at them by the male. This is what makes feminism an ideology which makes the male accustomed to the social mindset of male domination and female silence and chickening to wet his pants. Rather, this is ought not to be the case. Feminism will in time correct the fractured mindset of the male misogynistic society and evolve the male into a mindset of chivalry at all times. Feminism, if truly utilized for good, will redeem the male character to evolve into a better version against the ones we have today.

63 Powerful Quotes Of Thomas Paine

Thomas Paine
1.I do not believe in the creed professed by the Jewish Church, by the Roman Church, by the Greek Church, by the Turkish Church, by the Protestant Church, nor by any Church that I know of. My own mind is my own Church. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

2.It is necessary to the happiness of man that he be mentally faithful to himself. Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving; it consists in professing to believe what one does not believe. It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

3.Priests and conjurors are of the same trade. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

4.The most formidable weapon against errors of every kind is reason. I have never used any other, and I trust I never shall. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

5.Take away from Genesis the belief that Moses was the author, on which only the strange believe that it is the word of God has stood, and there remains nothing of Genesis but an anonymous book of stories, fables, and traditionary or invented absurdities, or of downright lies. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

6.The Bible is a book that has been read more and examined less than any book that ever existed. [The Theological Works of Thomas Paine]

7.Every phrase and cirsumstance are marked with the barbarous hand of superstitious torture, and forced into meanings it was impossible they could have. The head of every chapter, and the top of every page, are blazoned with the names of Christ and the Church, that the unwary reader might suck in the error before he began to read.[Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason, p.131]

8.Accustom a people to believe that priests, or any other class of men can forgive sins, and you will have sins in abundance.[The Theological Works of Thomas Paine, p.207]

9.The adulterous connection between church and state… [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

10.The declaration which says that God visits the sins of the fathers upon the children is contrary to every principle of moral justice. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

11.Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistant that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

12…but the Bible is such a book of lies and contradictions there is no knowing which part to believe or whether any… [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

13.The NT, compared with the Old, is like a farce of one act… [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

14.That God cannot lie, is no advantage to your argument, because it is no proof that priests can not, or that the Bible does not. [The Life and Works of Thomas Paine, Vol. 9 p. 134]

15…we must be compelled to hold this doctrine to be false, and the old and new law called the Old and New Testament, to be impositions, fables and forgeries. [The Life and Works of Thomas Paine, Vol. 9 p. 282]

16.There are matters in the Bible, said to be done by the express commandment of God, that are shocking to humanity and to every idea we have of moral justice….. [Thomas Paine]

17.Revelation is necessarily limited to the first communication– after that it is only an account of something which that person says was a revelation made to him; and though he may find himself obliged to believe it, it can not be incumbent on me to believe it in the same manner; for it was not a revelation made to ME, and I have only his word for it that it was made to him. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

18.The story of the whale swallowing Jonah, though a whale is large enough to do it, borders greatly on the marvelous; but it would have approached nearer to the idea of a miracle if Jonah had swallowed the whale. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

19.Of all the systems of religion that ever were invented, there is no more derogatory to the Almighty, more unedifiying to man, more repugnant to reason, and more contradictory to itself than this thing called Christianity. Too absurd for belief, too impossible to convince, and too inconsistent for practice, t renders the heart torpid or produces only atheists or fanatics. As an engine of power, it serves the purpose of despotism, and as ameans of wealth, the avarice of priests, but so far as respects the good of man in general it leads to nothing here or hereafter. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

20.As to the book called the bible, it is blasphemy to call it the Word of God. It is a book of lies and contradictions and a history of bad times and bad men. [Thomas Paine, writing to Andrew Dean August 15, 1806]

21.It is far better that we admitted a thousand devils to roam at large than that we permitted one such imposter and monster as Moses, Joshua, Samuel, and the Bible prophets, to come with the pretended word of God and have credit among us.

22.The continually progressive change to which the meaning of words is subject, the want of a universal language which renders translation necessary, the errors to which translations are again subject, the mistakes of copyists and printers, together with the possibility of willful alteration, are of themselves evidences that the human language, whether in speech or in print, cannot be the vehicle of the Word of God. The Word of God exists in something else. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

23.It will be proper to take a review of the several sources from which governments have arisen, and on which they have been founded.

24.They may be all comprehended under three heads — 1st, Superstition; 2d, Power; 3d, the common interests of society, and the common rights of man.

25.The first was a government of priestcraft, the second of conquerors, and the third of reason. [Thomas Paine, The Rights of Man]

26.Toleration is not the opposite of intoleration, but it is the counterfeit of it. Both are despotisms. The one assumes to itself the right of withholding liberty of conscience, and the other of granting it. The one is the pope, armed with fire and fagot, and the other is the pope selling or granting indulgences. [Thomas Paine, The Rights of Man]

27….Thomas did not believe the resurrection [John 20:25], and, as they say, would not believe without having ocular and manual demonstration himself. So neither will I, and the reason is equally as good for me, and for every other person, as for Thomas. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

28.What is it the Bible teaches us? – raping, cruelty, and murder. What is it the New Testament teaches us? – to believe that the Almighty committed debauchery with a woman engaged to be married, and the belief of this debauchery is called faith.

29.When I see throughout this book, called the Bible, a history of the grossest vices and a collection of the most paltry and contemptible tales and stories, I could not so dishonor my Creator by calling it by His name. [Thomas Paine, in Toward The Mystery]

30.Belief in a cruel God makes a cruel man.

31.As to the book called the Bible, it is blasphemy to call it the Word of God. It is a book of lies and contradictions, and a history of bad times and bad men. There are but a few good characters in the whole book. [Thomas Paine, Letter to William Duane, April 23, 1806]

32.His [Jesus’] historians, having brought him into the world in a supernatural manner, were obliged to take him out again in the same manner, or the first part of the story must have fallen to the ground.

33.The most detestable wickedness, the most horrid cruelties, and the greatest miseries that have afflicted the human race have had their origin in this thing called revelation, or revealed religion. It has been the most destructive to the peace of man since man began to exist. Among the most detestable villains in history, you could not find one worse than Moses, who gave an order to butcher the boys, to massacre the mothers and then rape the daughters. One of the most horrible atrocities found in the literature of any nation. I would not dishonor my Creator’s name by attaching it to this filthy book. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

34.My country is the world, and my religion is to do good.

35.Whence arose all the horrid assassinations of whole nations of men, women, and infants, with which the Bible is filled; and the bloody persecutions, and tortures unto death, and religiosu wars, that since that time have laid Europe in blood and ashes; whence arose they, but from this impious thing called religion, and this monstrous belief that God has spoken to man? [Thomas Paine, quoted in 2000 Years of Disbelief, Famous People with the Courage to Doubt by James Haught]

36.The age of ignorance commenced with the Christian system. [Thomas Paine, quoted in 2000 Years of Disbelief, Famous People with the Courage to Doubt by James Haught]

37.Prophesying is lying professionally. [Thomas Paine, quoted in 2000 Years of Disbelief, Famous People with the Courage to Doubt by James Haught]

38.If thou trusteth to the book called the Scriptures, thou trusteth to the rotten staff of fables and of falsehood. [Thomas Paine, quoted in 2000 Years of Disbelief, Famous People with the Courage to Doubt by James Haught]

39.One good schoolmaster is of more use than a hundred priests. [Thomas Paine, quoted in 2000 Years of Disbelief, Famous People with the Courage to Doubt by James Haught]

40.Science is the true theology. [Thomas Paine, quoted in Emerson, The Mind on Fire pg 153]

41.All this [Paul’s writing] is nothing better than the jargon of a conjurer who picks up phrases he does not understand to confound the credulous people who come to have their fortune told. [Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason]

42….to argue with a man who has renouced his reason is like giving medicine to the dead. [Thomas Paine, The Crisis, quoted in Ingersoll’s Works, Vol. 1, p.127]

43.Everything wonderful in appearance has been ascribed to angels, to devils, or to saints. Everything ancient has some legendary tale annexed to it. The common operations of nature have not escaped their practice of corrupting everything.

44.No falsehood is so fatal as that which is made an article of faith.

45.When an objection cannot be made formidable, there is some policy in trying to make it frightful; and to substitute the yell and the war- whoop, in the place of reason, argument and good order. Jesuitical cunning always endeavors to disgrace what it cannot disprove.

46.The story of the redemption will not stand examination. That man should redeem himself from the sin of eating an apple by committing a murder on Jesus Christ, is the strangest system of religion ever set up.

47.Yet this is trash that the Church imposes upon the world as the Word of God; this is the collection of lies and contradictions called the Holy Bible! This is the rubbish called Revealed Religion!

48.The Christian system of religion is an outrage on common sense.

49.The countries the most famous and the most respected of antiquity are those which distinguished themselves by promoting and patronizing science, and on the contrary those which neglected or discouraged it are universally denominated rude and barbarous. The patronage which Britain has shown to Arts, Science and Literature has given her a better established and lasting rank in the world than she ever acquired by her arms. And Russia is a modern instance of the effect which the encouragement of those things produces both as to the internal improvement of a country and the character it raises abroad. The reign of Louis the fourteenth is more distinguished by being the Era of Science and Literature in France than by any other circumstance of those days.

50.The Church was resolved to have a New Testament, and as, after the lapse of more than three hundred years, no handwriting could be proved or disproved, the Church, which like former impostors had then gotten possession of the State, had everything its own way. It invented creeds, such as that called the Apostle’s Creed, the Nicean Creed, the Athanasian Creed, and out of the loads of rubbish that were presented it voted four to be Gospels, and others to be Epistles, as we now find them arranged.

51.The Christian religion begins with a dream and ends with a murder.

52.All the tales of miracles, with which the Old and New Testament are filled, are fit only for imposters to preach and fools to believe.

53.Had the news of salvation by Jesus Christ been inscribed on the face of the sun and the moon, in characters that all nations would have understood, the whole earth had known it in twenty-four hours, and all nations would have believed it; whereas, though it is now almost two thousand years since, as they tell us, Christ came upon earth, not a twentieth part of the people of the earth know anything of it, and among those who do, the wiser part do not believe it.

54.There is scarcely any part of science, or anything in nature, which those imposters and blasphemers of science, called priests, as well Christians as Jews, have not, at some time or other, perverted, or sought to pervert to the purpose of superstition and falsehood.

55.The New Testament, they tell us, is founded upon the prophecies of the Old; if so, it must follow the fate of its foundation.

56.Of all the tyrannies that affect mankind, tyranny in religion is the worst; every other species of tyranny is limited to the world we live in; but this attempts to stride beyond the grave, and seeks to pursue us into eternity.

57.I put the following work under your protection. It contains my opinion upon religion. You will do me the justice to remember, that I have always strenuously supported the right of every man to his opinion, however different that opinion might be to mine. He who denies to another this right, makes a slave of himself to his present opinion, because he precludes himself the right of changing it.

58.The story of Jesus Christ appearing after he was dead is the story of an apparition, such as timid imaginations can always create in vision, and credulity believe. Stories of this kind had been told of the assassination of Julius Caesar…

59.The study of theology, as it stands in the Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authority; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion.

60.All national institutions of churches, whether Jewish, Christian, or Turkish, appear to me no other than human inventions, set up to terrify and enslave mankind, and monopolize power and profit.

61.Any system of religion that has anything in it that shocks the mind of a child, cannot be true.

62.Persecution is not an original feature in any religion; but it is always the strongly marked feature of all religions established by law.

63.But though every created thing is, in this sense, a mystery, the word mystery cannot be applied to moral truth, any more than obscurity can be applied to light. … Mystery is the antagonist of truth. It is a fog of human invention, that obscures truth, and represents it in distortion. Truth never envelops itself in mystery, and the mystery in which it is at any time enveloped is the work of its antagonist, and never of itself.

The Selective Condolence Of The Religious

I hate to do this….

But if Sam Harris, Stephen Hawkins or Richard Dawkins were to die in a fatal plane crash in the company of family, I am very sure that 98% of christian folks will accrue the fatality to some wrath from a white-bearded sky-landlord.

Even among their sky-colleagues, if say T.B Joshua should die from a plane crash, the set of religitards who are certain that T.B is a fake emissary of their sky-landlord will chorus the cause of such fatality to their own version of sky-daddy, say, God of Chosen, God of Catholic, Winners, etc and to the camel brigade “Allah akbhar” shall be the short chorus.

The other time some nit-wit was busy celebrating how his pastor escaped from an auto-crash unharmed. Months back, the religitard participated in the vendor of the popular text where famous atheists are listed to have died as a result of some Jewish genie’s anger against their anti-skydaddy rhetoric. Today, since Munroe is his icon of admiration, his tragedy becomes the “will of God”, “God gives and takes”, “A call to glory”, etc.

You can readily see that religion makes people selective bigots and all round idiots, no wonder it was recently said that religious fundamentalism will soon be classified as a mental illness.

If you are an adult and you haven’t noticed that life comes with a gift of tragedy and joy and no man chooses the scene to which his tragedy will be played especially the one that relates to death, then you are over-ripe for a claptrap award. If you agree with certainty that the demise of the preacher, Myles Munroe’s is a will of God (which is a good thing) and the demise of Hitchens, Lenon, Russell and any predicament that befalls an irreligious man is the craftmanship of some wrath of God, then you are a fundamentalist and you should be assigned an asylum.

The day religitard breeds will grow up to the confrontation that you were born to die one day and that day of death, no man determines not how it ought to be, then that will be the day you’ll realize that your imaginary will and wrath of God is less than a fable of a lunatic. Life comes with the bonanza of death, and like criminals awaiting trial, we try to evade the day of death whilst we struggle in vainity for it shall surely come. No wonder they console themselves with docile promises of everlasting and eternal life; sweet it is, so is the imaginations of a sky-wonderland, keep dreaming. Once you have come to peace with this, you will embrace humanity with humility and love peace while your hang around. There is no God that accords longevity, prosperity, protection, etc, deal with it and appreciate the short-life you will live.
