How Government Can Help Religion

Despite the rise in the number of Americans who identify as either atheist or agnostic, most of our citizens continue to hold strong religious beliefs in some sort of deity or ‘higher intelligence’. As a general proposition, there are elements of truth in all religions, and most of these promote peace, love, and tolerance, all of which go towards making a more harmonious society. For these reasons, the Government respects the right to worship of all believers and does not interfere in any way with this. Indeed, many of our top leaders are devout Christians, Muslims or Hindus. There is also a modest representation from the Jewish faith in the upper echelons of the establishment.

What is also clear, however, is that with the exception of Islam, all the above major religions are now over 2000 years old. With the passage of time, it is inevitable that the original messages become blurred or forgotten, key scripts are either lost or had to be  rewritten well after the event, meaning that doctrinal differences of interpretation begin to emerge. Whilst such differences may seem unimportant in the modern world, the truth is that these are at the heart of discord, emnity and give religion a bad name.

We can also observe how the purported teachings of certain religions are diametrically opposed to what their followers actually believe and practice. As an example, the Catholic Church and most Christian denominations teach that abortion and homosexual acts are greatly ‘sinful’. However, many devout Catholic politicians like Nancy Pelosi are staunchly pro-choice. Pelosi is on record as saying, for example:

“The issue of late-term abortion is one that has been used by the far right to fight a woman’s right to choose because it sounds like something that shouldn’t happen.”

Pelosi hits the nail on the head here; it is only extremist/fundamentalist Christians who would deny a womyn their basic health choices. They defend their bigoted views by making an extreme interpretation of certain biblical passages.

It seems to us that religion is an area where the Government can make a real difference. We propose the following for all religions which began more than 2000 years ago:

  • A task-force be appointed to bring religious texts up to date for the Current Year. Many years ago, King James did this in England for the Christian bible. Perhaps this could be a role for Obama. This work would ensure that extreme interpretations of certain passages are no longer possible
  • All hateful ideas be removed from the texts, including passages clearly hurtful to the LGBTQ+ communities
  • Leaders of the various churches etc. should be appointed directly by the Government after a careful vetting process. This will ensure only candidates who hold Current Year theological opinions are promoted. This has proven a remarkable success in China.
  • A database is collated of all believers, sorted by religion, to be used by government agents from time to time

As we say, the right to worship is fundamental and must be protected. These modest proposals will simply improve the quality and diversity of the worship.

The newest “religion” (Islam is more more like an extortion racket then a religion) is bringing back some “old time” practices

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/10/libya-public-slave-auctions-un-migration

West African migrants are being bought and sold openly in modern-day slave markets in Libya, survivors have told a UN agency helping them return home.

Trafficked people passing through Libya have previously reported violence, extortion and slave labour. But the new testimony from the International Organization for Migration suggests that the trade in human beings has become so normalised that people are being traded in public.

“The latest reports of ‘slave markets’ for migrants can be added to a long list of outrages [in Libya],” said Mohammed Abdiker, IOM’s head of operation and emergencies. “The situation is dire. The more IOM engages inside Libya, the more we learn that it is a vale of tears for all too many migrants.”

This is a fantastic idea but either too late or too soon for it’s time. If the person I worship (Obama) were still head of the government I would trust them to make decisions but with a Trump pretending to be in charge government I can’t condone making decisions. Now in a few more months once Trump has been impeached and imprisoned and Hillary has assumed her deserved spot than I would again trust my government to make those decisions.
Unless by government you mean the UN and EU than I would support that.
I would also support a general democratic election where we as a nation got to vote on just one religion everyone should worship.

I agree – we need a one world religion, along with a one world government. This religion should revolve around progressivism, tolerance and social justice, and should govern every aspect of our lives. The population should be monitored closely, and heretics should be punished severely.

Yes! Eine Welt, ein Gott, ein Herrschaft! I share your vision for a better world, with a small clarification: progressivism and tolerance can flourish only after social justice has cleansed the planet from all who oppose (or don’t actively support) our progressive ideas!

Will the new one world religion allow one to wear red MAGA diapers, and matching red ties? Or will it be restricted to just the leaders?

Only upper echelons of the establishment are allowed to wear matching red MAGA ties and diapers. This will help minimize collateral when the shit hits the fan.

We need to get the solemn discussions of the leaders in the war room, in red MAGA diapers, and matching red ties videotaped. We can’t lose the recording of this historical moment, like we lost the moon landing tapes.

My favorite moon landing picture by far has to be the one showing tire tracks beside the landing module, while the moon rover it still stuck to the landing module’s side.

It’s got to have been caused by space aliens.

Sadly, the NSA/CIA/FBI etc etc etc have scrubbed that picture from the internet, in order to keep us ignorant of our space brothers and sisters.

Does that surprise you? It is all white fucking male coverup. They never went to Moon, as opposed to ancient Africans (Yakub anyone?). It is clear that so-called Moon landings by white males Armstrong etc were choreographed to suppress evidence of prior Moon landings by transgendered minority LGBTQIAPPPP+ persons.

Re-education is NOT a punishment, even if heretics are placed in camps with 20% survival rate.

Any leftist will tell you that government IS religion. Why? Experts say there are 10 top reasons, but it seems to me it’s because we have 3 times as many government holidays honoring government than religious holidays. Trump needs to require government workers to work on real religious holidays until they vote Republican.

Conservatards have their belief in free market religion. I guess passenger “re-accommodation” of privately-owned United airlines is an excellent example of benign market forces in action.

Wise article Pbier. However I personally think that only Christianity is need of a reformation. Islam and Judaism are clearly very LGBTQ+ friendly because there is huge support for the Democrats from these groups. How could Muslims so enthusiastically support a party that so strongly favors of progressivism if they are the homophobes and sexists the alt right make them out to be?
