Hum Hallelujah

The do’s and don’ts of life aren’t always as simple as black and white. The only thing that’s probably stopping us from slitting each other’s throats are the predetermined rules made up by those who claim to have been given authority by what they call a higher being.

Personally, I am in no way fond of god-kings (simply because I was never given the opportunity to become one… haha… XD)… but I do admire their genius in blending faith with subordination…

Their idea of exploiting the people’s beliefs to gain dominion over their free will is truly remarkable (now you might think that manipulation in a perverted sense is plain evil… but to me… it’s just good politics… haha… :P). Think about it… what better way to sell yourself to power than carrying a huge banner with none other than Mr. Omnipotent himself?! haha…

But those days are long gone…

after the coming of the new century, things couldn’t have gotten any darker…

What happened to the lawful extortion of everything that you could lay your eyes on?!…

What happened to the pious onslaughts brought about by the crusades?!…

And what happened to the daily offerings of the town’s finest women to quell the mighty One’s wrath?! (I may have made up this last one but I seriously believe that religious leaders should’ve considered this in lieu of celibacy… haha…)

Those once majestic perks were now cut down to measly tax exemptions (hmph… :P)… this century is dark indeed?!… haha…

Honestly…

These are the things that would make me proud to be a member of the church… at least these were the things… haha…

But look at what’s left?! The church is nothing more than a sorry image of its former self… instead of the women… priests have gained an inclination towards molesting little boys…. (celibacy… tsk… tsk… tsk… :P)…

What has become of the once potent god-kings (XD)?!… And what of the grandeur of the almighty church?!

In this new day and age of pseudo-moralities what are we to do?!…

Sigh… haha… XD

… … …

“In God we trust”…

I just hope that we can say the same for People….

… … …

Hmm… I am well aware that my views on religion are skeptical… and that I a may offend a lot of religious buffs… but in my defense… I’m a lot more spiritual than religious… haha…
