My Comments

I think I would give anything, right about now, for the Bible to STOP going on and on and on and ON about how God just HAS to punish all his people because they just HAD to commit to HORRIBLE abomination (of which there are no greater abominations, apparently) or *gasp!* WORSHIPING DEITIES THAT AREN'T GOD! I mean holy shit, this is, what, the fourth book now that has to completely bash us over the heads with this nonsense? Not just imply, like other books have, but completely and totally show us just what a jealous asshole God is.

I completely agree with others that reading the Bible is probably the easiest way to get people to stop believing in this douchebag deity. I think if I had still been a believer when I started this project I would definitely not be one now. And I'm supposedly to believe that THIS God right here, old testament, jealous as shit god, is supposedly to suddenly turn into daisies and sunshine when Jesus is born?


And I hate that I still sound like a broken record after all these books but it's really all the Bible is giving me to work with, here. Also, oddly enough, it CONTINUES to surprise me. Is that weird? I know I should be expecting this crap by now, but every other chapter or so I find myself just face palming and thinking what the fuck? Why do people still believe in this shit? What the fuck am I reading? I just don't get it...

Friday: More Ezekiel


  1. I haven't been commenting for much the same reason: I feel I haven't anything new to say. The subject matter is repetitive, and the little of the source material I brush up on to comment has been tedious reading. Women continue to be ignored, vilified, or used as exemplars of weakness.

    That said, I look forward to your comments and read them with enjoyment. Your outrage has remained fresh and you write with passion and conviction. As long as you keep reading and venting, I'll be along for the ride.

  2. Not gonna lie, it's good to hear that someone's still around and still enjoying it (despite the tedium of the subject matter). :)

    I keep wanting to add news commentary to the posts that I have little to say on, but I've cut a lot of the atheists blogs I used to read from my daily reading so I'm not as informed on religious news as I used to be. :\
