Subject: Is Your Religion a Front?

A message on a church signboard I saw today made
me ponder and wonder:
"IS YOUR RELIGION A FRONT?"
To which I thought, "What do you mean?
Are you saying that mine is and yours isn't?"
The question should be, "Ask not whether your
religion is a front, but rather what your
religion is a front FOR ...?"
If your religion is a FRONT for stodgy, dull,
mentally unhealthy, possibly psychotic, willfully
ignorant, malevolent and hateful DUPES who praise
a paper GOD;
If your religion is a FRONT for antagonistic
and naieve crypto-fascists who advocate genocide
in the name of love, misconstrue sensory deprivation
as epiphany, and promote willful and irreperable
destruction of His property (you know, "Trash
all you want - He'll make more") in the name of
If your religion is a FRONT for pollyannas who
absolve themselves of any responsibility for
taking control of their lives while simultaneously
attempting to restrict other's access to information
pursuant to making informed and educated decisions;
Mabye it's time to SWITCH!!
As a deprogrammed former Charismatic Christian,
complete with tounges-speaking and falling on
the floor thereof, I can attest to the pervasiveness
of religious mania and its control over my life,
sometimes months or even years after the original
decision to separate.
I can attest to the methods by which agents of
Christ manipulated and indocrinated me at the most
insecure and needy time of my youth. I can attest
to the willful naievete and self-restricting guilt
which has served as roadblocks to my personal
fullfillment. And I can confess to the squandered
youth and wasted time as a slave to the minions of
Christ, trying to appease and be concilitory to the
robots of the one truly EVIL religion.
Don't be a fool playing catch-up like I did for
so many years. If you want the scales to be
ripped from your eyes, the first step is as easy
as it is cheap:
ONE dollar to P.O. Box 140306, Dallas TX 75214.
After which you will proudly stand and holler:
"No! YOUR religion is a FRONT. Mine is a FULL FRONTAL."
