What strikes me is how in our own government we are taught at an early age that there is a separation of Church and state… but that does not apply in the US folks. We have two factions… the Republicans with the strong Christian viewpoint mostly on their side, and the Democrats with the mostly atheist base groups (as well as some religions but not as a whole per say). One side is so stout about gay marriage and abortion that they even try to quote the bible to prove their view points. Here is my concern to that. Folks…. there are over 2900 version of the book we call the bible. It is not the true word of God after it has been manipulated and reproduced to include and remove items from it to appeal to any new religion that pops up. History also shows that the bible is not the real word of the Lord since it was created 300 years AFTER the death of Christ and the disciples. The Council of Nice was put together to create what we call the bible. However, let’s not forget that several gospels from Jesus and key disciples where not selected to be in that book. Why is that? Simple the bible was put together by pagans and new age Christians who wanted peace and see that there was some type of order of ethics in an age of disorder. Since that time the bible has been modified over and over again to meet the needs or desires of the people in charge back in those years. The opposition to Gay Marriage was added, abortion was added, and things like baptism at birth, the only key scripture from Jesus himself, was removed in some religion’s bible (NIV mainly). So with all these changes to a simple book, who actually knows what God wants or is displeased with… I will tell you… Simple research on the history of religion will explain that… I would HIGHLY suggest that be done to understand what God really wants. One of the key things is not to judge someone on earth. Saying a gay person will burn in hell is a great example of that. Gay lifestyles are as old as dirt… even before Christ days on earth. It would not have existed if God had an issue from what I understand. So with the religious chat behind us here is the point of this rant/blog. STOP Pushing laws for ethical or morality… period! Why, simple we spend billions of tax dollars on Gay issues and abortion and other moral based topics… all for nothing. How about this… we only concern ourselves with the ACTUAL issues of the nation, poor economy based on jobs going to other countries because the US taxes big business too high, getting rid of the unions… they are useless these days, strengthening the borders, fixing our foreign policy that were destroyed since 2008 and moving to a flat 10% tax across the board (should be eye opening to most that the Democrats are the ones who hate this proposed solution… why… because they are hiding the most $$$ they steal I bet). Leave morality to God. If gay marriage is a sin, then let God deal with it… it is not a reverend from a fake protest church in the bible belt to condemn someone. Morality is something for an individual to deal with in the eyes of the Lord… not ours. Once we stop with the morality fights, we can actual get some things done right I hope… so let Gay’s Marry… they are not harming you… If a woman wants an abortion provide her a safe place to do so… it is just that simple folks… study the history of religion and get the real message of God… see that there are 1000s of scrolls that were not in the bible that were from the actual people who mannered… you can either look them up or take a trip to the Vatican to see if you can get in their library where they all reside. But either way we need to stop bitching about religion in politics and get the actual problems solved.
