Not Germane To The Conversation

Clean Up After Your God

I’ve heard it said and I have read, certain entities and/or ideologies, are unimpeachable, not political, not germane to the conversation.

Let me make my opinion of the observations I have had, perfectly clear.

I have noticed, ever since President Obama declared his preference for Arugula lettuce over any other kind, EVERYTHING is political. From politically correct speech to the color you wear to support your cause, even the shape of the ribbon and that’s just in the U.S.A.

Until the Chinese government stops persecuting the Dalai Lama and his followers, for their belief system, religion is political. Until Evangelical Christians stop trying to declare the United States of America, a Christian based nation and stop trying to rewrite the U.S. Constitution, religion is political. Until all countries stop using their officials’ particular brand of Centrism, to decide the clothes people wear, the caste they belong in, if a human being is allowed to read, write and eat, religion is political. Until Israel stops persecuting the Palestinians and vice versa, while still being separate branches of the same tree, religion is political. Until there are no more ‘Religious Police’ in the world, no more female genital mutilation, no more democratically elected Popes, land grabs, nation based religious coercion, gender-biased and color based, exaction and extortion of humanity, religion is political.

I have news for EVERYONE.

IF there is a Deity, we are ALL chosen or NONE OF US ARE.
