Someone sent me a book that I started to read about a tragic event that pushes a man to the brink only the book is all about Christian beliefs and religion. The book is so full of religious intentions that I had to jump to the end of the book and eventually tossed it in the trash with an overwhelming need to wash my hands. I want the hour and a half back spent reading this trash and manipulation I promise you that I have no problem with the concepts of divinity and broader perceptions but I have a HUGE issue with religion all religions bug me. Religions feel like manmade concepts designed to control the uninitiated and the lazy. Instead of being allowed to find the surreal incapable of true description ideology of the Divine with a capital D, I will not succumb to the small descriptions of cutesy countrified depictions of Christ and the God head as anything remotely common or simplistic like man/woman. It’s boring and insulting and manipulative. We are so in need of some fresh take on The God story this other stuff is BORING. I won’t name the book because it doesn’t deserve the publicity but it scares me to think it’s one of millions that are out there dumbing down the world. No wonder we have been losing our mind here in America in the name of Christian values, scary!
