Moral Tissues

I did say I was gonna discuss the issue on morality, if it is interlinked with religion or not.

Well, let me say this.

If you think the only thing keeping you from raping, sodomising and killing the person beside you is religion, then I think you need to see a psychiatrist really soon. If you think the only thing keeping you from stealing a Pajero and running over school kids and the elderly is because you pray five times a day, you're seriously in need of a strap jacket and some pills.

Fuck you if you think just because I don't believe in God, I'm more prone to being a criminal than you are. R. E. L. I. G. I. O. N. It spells a whole lotta trouble.

Religion justifies so many violent acts, it's unbelievable. Wars. Stoning (no, not with a bong, you idiot). Beheading. You do know, don't you, that someone caught stealing in actual Shari'a law, that his hands should be cut off and then dipped in boiling oil? That cheating wives should be stoned to death? That gays should be impaled? Does that sound morally correct to you? Is that your picture of morality? Of deserved punishment?

Or, or. I think this is priceless. For women, one exposed hair (yes, just one) means you're going to hell for thousands of years.

So they say God is merciful.

I'm not sure if this one is true, but I won't be surprised. The Prophet loved cats so much, that when he found this 'alim' guy forgot to feed his cat, he said he was gonna be sent to hell. Wow. I think The Prophet should join PETA. They would get along merrily. Of course explaining that you married a 9-year-old girl would be an awkward situation for anyone, even overzealous animal-rights activists.


I think 90% of you would've stopped reading by now.

Then a further 9% would be busy writing hate-mail or death-threats to me.

To the 1% who finished reading it with still an open mind, thanks for reading my post, Jason Biggs.


  1. let see,WW1,WW2,vietnam war,falkland war,korean war,heck even the bosnian war werent intially because of religion,which war are you talking about?

  2. I've just realised you commented here.

    Here are some religious wars:

    [1] The Crusades
    [2] The Muslim Conquests
    [3] The French War Of Religions
    [4] Thirty Years War
    [5] Second Sino-Japanese War
    [6] Saxon Wars
    [7] War On Terrorism
    [8] First Islamic Civil War
    [9] The Israel-Arab Wars

    Just to name a few.

    Religion has also been used to justify wars, even though it was usually political.

    Hitler advocated what he called "Positive Christianity" for Nazism. In Northern Ireland, the fact that the different sides were either Protestant or Catholic escalated The Troubles. The Iraqi War was exacerbated by the fact that both leaders thought 'God' was on their side. The Holy Spirit Movement in Uganda was caused by Alice Lakwena's claim that God commanded her to seize the capital.

  3. And oh, Hitler used the 'Jews killed Jesus' argument to convince people that the Holocaust was just
