Extreme Religious Insanity Escalating as they Promote Hatred, Violence, and Murder

Updated on December 21, 2015

Minister speaks at GOP hopefuls conference


Promoting hatred in America and across the globe. Propagated by a desperate need of religion to control the lives of people.

Brainwashed, indoctrinated, and inherited stupidity, seems to be our only heritage from a long history of oppression.

The isolation within society of the GLBT communities, blacks, women, and other minorities, are maintained by leaders to be used as punching bags to pacify the supposed "moral" majority and promote political campaign issues that divide us as a nation and globally.

Note: This is an addendum to the following article. It is to show just how far religions have plummeted into the depths of ignorance and evil when they openly advocate hatred, intolerance, and yes, even murder in the name of their wrathful Gods.

Does our first amendment shield these crazies from their share of responsibility in promoting destabilization of societal quietude? It has been proven to be so. Nothing is excluded from that almighty "free speech" amendment.

Is this NOT the exact same premise as falsely shouting "FIRE" in a crowded theater?

The rights of freedom of speech must be curtailed when it promotes violence, hatred, and murder. Punishing people for hate crimes by imprisonment is not the answer to this problem.

The haters need to be deprogrammed and the abusive practice of brainwashing our children into these cults from birth must be stopped in its tracks.

The original email:

This is an excerpt from an email i recently received:

To: d.william: Make. It. Stop.

From time to time, even my mind is blown by the lengths that anti-equality folks will go to in order to win ballot initiatives that limit or roll back the rights of LGBT Americans. Yesterday was one of those times.

I was watching the local news yesterday evening and saw video footage of a Maryland pastor making the argument that LGBT folks should be put to death -- and allies of LGBT folks should also be put to death. I nearly fell off the couch! I live in Maryland, and the fight here to keep a law in place that grants civil marriage equality to LGBT Marylanders is getting pretty nasty -- but this was really too much.

But the worst part is that, when the pastor made these comments, the campaign manager for the anti-equality campaign -- Derek McCoy -- was sitting right next to him, nodding. That's right -- the man leading the charge to take away rights from LGBT Marylanders thinks there is nothing wrong with the assertion that LGBT folks and our allies should be killed.

Can you send a clear message to Derek McCoy that this kind of rhetoric is harmful, shameful, and inappropriate for a campaign to condone? We'll deliver your signature next week to show that there's no place in the debate for this kind of hatred.

[Just so that you know I'm not exaggerating, here's -- verbatim -- what he said:]

''The Scriptures in Leviticus 18:22 — you know what that says, that a man is not to lay down with another man; if they do that, it’s an abomination. But there is one verse I really wanted to drive home and then I’ll stop, but that’s in Romans Chapter 1. And it’s the very last verse — as you know, Paul addresses this. Listen to the last verse: "Knowing the righteous judgment of God that those who practice such things are deserving of death. Not only do the same" — but watch this — "for those who also approve of those who practice these things." If we don’t vote against it, then we are approving these things that are worthy of death! [1]''

There was no qualification of this statement -- no "I mean spiritual death, not physical death" or "of course we don't mean putting people to death, but you see how seriously the Bible takes this question." In fact, in subsequent interviews, this pastor -- Robert Anderson -- has not backed off of this statement, nor has he apologized. [2]

Statements like these are irresponsible and we won't tolerate them without pushing back. Opponents of equality keep saying that they will face discrimination if this ballot initiative passes -- that's a ridiculous assertion and only fuels statements like these.

I don't think there is much more i can add to this email, except it is atrocious and meant to inflame the radical religious population and incite violence and murder against a segment of our country.

We must all fight for equality for everyone in this country in spite of their political affiliations, gender, orientation, religious beliefs, nationality or any other differences we have in a diverse and "civilized" society.

My error -

Today i have proven myself wrong in that last paragraph when i said there is not much more i can add to this email.

I was shocked to see on the headlines of Yahoo news, this article about a 17 year old high school student at Russell Country High School in Russel country, Alabama. He had written in his journals that he intended to kill 6 students and one teacher. All were black except one white person who he 'thought' was gay.

This is a perfect example of the damages done to our children, our society, and ultimately to the global society when we allow parents and religions to preach, brainwash, and indoctrinate their children into their own warped version of their religious beliefs.

The wasted life of this 17 year old young man must not be blamed entirely on him alone.

He is the product of his upbringing, the insanity of religious teachings, and backed by parents who were also brainwashed as children - Insanity perpetuated by insanity. The serious mental condition of this young man CANNOT be blamed on him alone. Brainwashing is a powerful tool used to control people by every single religion, sect, cult, and government around the world.

One of the greatest threats to peace and security on this planet that every one chooses to ignore because they are also ingrained with terror of a wrathful God that will smite them down if they dare to think outside the box, and question what they were programmed to believe, long before they were able to discern the logic, rationality, and common sense of what they were unwittingly taught.

Religions foster hatred

Stop and Think. Sooner or later truth usually triumphs.

Recent news broadcasts reveal a stark revelation:

  • Religions do indeed foster and promote hatred, intolerance and violence.

The malignancy of religious hatred is palpable in today's society.

This truth is witnessed first hand by the overwhelming support for (Chik - fil - a) 's stance as anti-gay by the hate filled "religious" majority in this country. And the bigoted ignorance of a public servant (Kim Davis) who refused to issue marriage permits after the supreme court's decision that to do so was to be allowed under the constitution.

[Even our founders had the insight to say the majority rule cannot be used to oppose any minority, because they understood the base mentality of religious beliefs]

And yet, here we are today trying to make a constitutional amendment to do just that (discriminate), by the same political party that demands our constitution be adhered to more strictly.

Millions of people came out in support of this unfounded hatred, bigotry and intolerance. These are not inbred behaviors - they are learned. And their teachers? Religions and the weak minded who follow them blindly.

Ignorance seems to be inbred in our global society thanks to archaic thinking and indoctrinated fear, and the grossly intelligence impaired followers of their gods of hatred and wrath.

There is little doubt that hatred, bigotry and intolerance in this world has always been, and will always be, perpetrated and perpetuated by religions around the world.

A definite design flaw in humanity, yet to be corrected. It is the major weapon in their arsenal; to rule by fear, guilt and mind control.

Mankind is intelligent enough to recognize flaws in the things we design and build, and correct them; but seems unable to recognize and correct flaws in our own inadequate intellectual design and character.

One cannot possibly (logically or rationally) believe in a benevolent and almighty Creator and also believe that hatred and intolerance is inherent in the Creator's intentions for mankind.

Major influences

There are two major influences that fuel this need to continue hating and judging each other personally, nationally and globally:

1.Man's fear of change:

An unfounded fear of retribution by their gods of hatred. Humanity has a long history of religious ritualistic behavior [the worst being human sacrifices].

This ritualistic behavior is called obsessive compulsive; behaviors that are subconsciously adopted, and adapted, to appease their gods of war and wrath.

We attempt to treat obsessive compulsive disorders that have a destructive influence on an individual's life. This individual's exaggerated behavioral need to continuously and compulsively repeat the same inane action, or ritual, over and over again, is seen as a mental disorder in our society.

And yet, Obsessive compulsive disorders on a larger scale within a population is accepted as "normal" and "expected" behavior when done in the guise of a 'religious' nature.

False fears, and unfounded guilt, are so deeply ingrained in our minds by our respective religious teachings that no one wants to admit there is an evil malignancy within the body of our global society.

This global malignancy is only present because it is implanted so deeply within the psyches of each individual undergoing years of psychological brainwashing; which is the direct cause of its presence in the global society, due to its prevalence in the individuals en masse.

Maintaining the status quo of hatred and denial will not make this malignancy depart; neither will fighting mother nature's progression, or shifting the blame on an unseen negative force in order to deny that we have a real global social problem.

Neither will encouraging individuals to perform acts of violence towards those their religions teach them to hate in the form of: physical, emotional abuses and murder.

2. The controlling faction:

This prevailing notion that this "evil" that man seems to require in order to justify, or reconcile inequities in life , is not by accident, or by celestial design. There is "evil" in this world, but not that of "biblical" belief. The "evil" is in the minds, hearts, and souls of the world's leaders and their blind faith followers. An inherent flaw and shortcoming of mankind itself.

We, as a people, cannot (must not) worship money and power as if it was God's intent; for it was truly not, unless one would concede that their creator has flaws as well.

If we believe that these evils in the world today were intended by god's design then we need to re-think our own roles in exactly why we are here.

A god of wrath that requires judging others, spreading hatred and disharmony , and demanding adoration is NO god at all - and certainly not one that humanity should be expected to follow blindly and kill for.

This societal malignancy is a deliberately designed manifestation of men, and imposed upon mankind by those men, to further their own agendas of power and control. Those in "control" over our lives must keep the social unrest alive to prevent exposure of their malevolent motives.

In order to "treat a physical or emotional disease, or on a larger scale: [a societal "dis-ease"], one must first recognize it for what it truly is - a debilitating blight on our society.

'There is none so blind as those who just won't see' - that we are being played as fools and to bemuse us to the true intentions of our oppressors. Religions are the strings that control, and define us as nothing more than marionettes - puppets on a string - court jesters - and fools.

Religions are teaching us to hate!! That fact cannot be denied. Hatred keeps control over our lives. It is time to stand up and shout it out loud - NO MORE HATE!!

N.O.M. Bigotry and Lies

There is a war going on - in our minds

The Religious wars

There definitely is a religious war going on in this world. But that war is not for righteousness sake, it is for control and nothing else.

The perpetrators of that war are the religions themselves, and backed by governments. They have more to lose than do the people they control.

The ''people'' only stand to gain self respect and freedom to think for themselves.

Religions have a higher stake and more to lose: their power, control, untold wealth, their parasitic governmental "free ride" at the expense of people who can ill afford to support themselves and their families, let alone continue to support their oppressors' rich, opulent, and often corrupt, life styles.

The people tend to rebel against their religiously inappropriate and imaginary dreaded "gay" threat to society, not because there is any moral justification for it, but because their anger and frustration at the current state of global affairs seems to be helplessly and hopelessly out of control; and the innocent are always the targets of their anger, and the victims of a ruthless society.

Clamoring against any minority is the only expression of rebellion acceptable to the controlling factor of any disproportionately ruled society.

People are simply the pawns for its maintenance. The destruction of a minority is simply a necessity to maintain that control. The greatest control over the people was understood by the Roman Government when they created the Roman Catholic Church and Christianity as a means of control over a group of people whose only crime was their desire to obtain freedom from oppression.

Instead of freedom we gained greater subservience to our religious leaders and the governments who rule over us.

Mandating that anyone who opposes these "holy" laws will be punished by God is the ultimate form of mind control.

Stating that any "holy" book is the direct word of God, is the most proficient way to instill mortal fear, mistrust, discrimination, and guilt, into the hearts of mankind.

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

      All my life i have been 'guided' through life's journey by my spirit guide (s). If the path i chose was to lead to a blind alley, i was subtly (or more often abruptly) motivated to take another path that always proved to be more beneficial to others as well as respectful, and more rewarding, to my own well being.

      After i retired, i did not seem to have any purpose left in life, and so i asked my guides to simply let me return to my spiritual home.

      Instead, i was given the task of continuing to promote equality for all human beings, and to enlighten those who had the capacity to hear and understand, that what they were taught as children, and what they follow blindly (and fearfully) is not the true path to spiritual and/or social peace and harmony.

      When we recognize that what we are doing in the name of false religious teachings by judging others, and promoting hatred and intolerance, we can rethink our own personal roles in this often cruel, game of life in which we all play some part; and what we contribute to the society as a whole can either be love, peace and acceptance or hate, discord and intolerance of others.

      I chose to walk the path of tolerance, love, peace and acceptance of the great diversity in humanity as something to be cherished, not ridiculed, or destroyed, as some would rather do in the name of their 'religions'.

      I care very little about what others think of me, my writings, or what i speak for, or against, for i know that what i do is only for the betterment of mankind.

      The greatest, most profound oath that a physician (and a nurse) makes is: First, Do No Harm.

      I think there is a saying about where angels fear to tread. I admire your courage to write this hub and call attention to what continues to be a sad blight on American society. There are so many lovely citizens in that big country and yet the ones we hear from are the ones who seem to spew and spit out injustice and hatred. I remember saying after 911 that in a way this had come about because of the things that the USA has said and done - not that the citizens deserved this to happen. MY goodness I was so "hated" and my comments taken out of context. Thanks for shining a light on this difficult subject - I follow the words of Ghandi - "Be the change you want to see in the world" - as often as I can.

      Thanks for stopping to read and comment. I am sure Jesus was indeed a compassionate man, but he was just that - a man. Probably ahead of his time for his political views, but he was also a Gnostic in faith. Jesus wrote nothing that history can attribute to him directly. All his "teachings" etc.. were accounts put to pen by those who knew him, heard of him in stories, or believed that he was something more than he actually was.

      The history of the Catholic bible leaves much to be desired. 'God' also wrote nothing that can be attributed to him.

      Man believes that God inspired all that is written, i do agree that God has inspired me to write about the injustices in this world, and to clarify the misnomers that man has laid at his feet. (Assuming a spirit can actually have feet).

      Historical loyalties are exaggerated, misguided and misgiven by the fearful words of ancient religious rhetoric. Man can never progress and reach his true spiritual potential if he clings to the past like a man clinging to a log in the middle of the ocean.

      Christ was compassionate, period. He welcomed sinners. (I'm not calling anyone a sinner, i.e. gay people.) Compassionate is the last thing many "believers" of all faiths are.

      Love the discussion. I'm an agnostic ex-catholic monk.

      It is difficult to fathom this need to always have someone to hate and justify that hate by one's religious beliefs. But religions seem to generate the hate as seen over their histories of perpetual violence. There are some religions that actually generate love, but even those are designed to have some kind of control over the masses - some kind of mind control that people seem to require in order to justify our very existence.

      If people spent the same amount of time on positive and progressive things instead of the negative, this world would be a much better place for it.

      I still get freaked out over the repetition of these "religious sentiments". They don't stop to think about what they are saying. They never give credence to anyone's honest opinion of things. This "hatred" and bigotry keep going and going and going. When they get tired of one thing like interracial marriage, they move on to gay marriage. If they get tired of that, they will move on to interfaith marriages again or some other nonsense.

      It seems religion must have some sort of rallying point in order to control the thoughts and actions of its 'believers'.

      What next? A war against the Sikhs? Apparently so.

    • d.william profile imageAUTHOR

      Defending the "sanctity" of marriage based on ignorance is exactly what "hating" gays implies. We somehow have twisted even the ceremony of marriage into something it is not. It is simply a public and legally binding contract between two people. It was NOT designed or created by any religion, but rather the religious part was added later by the religious entities to somehow transfer this basic right into something holy.

      Those whose religion has blessed their marriages certainly do not hold those vows sacred unto God with the high rate of divorces in this country.

      The bond between two people who make a commitment to one another has nothing to do with religion and is only 'sacred' in the eyes of the two making that commitment.

      Love and commitment is the only basis for marriage and it must be recognized no matter who makes those commitments to who.

      The ignorant naysayers will make their ludicrous comments, as they always do, that any bizarre commitment fits that category, but they are just being stupid. One cannot make a commitment to anything (their pet goat for example - or a rock) that is not capable of reciprocation.

      History has shown that this "fight" against god's will, that interracial marriages were somehow evil and would bring the wrath of god upon this world have gone silently into the night as their ignorance has been proven wrong. The same will happen with same sex marriages in the future, but in the interim, many lives are being damaged because of this ignorance, and the false teachings of religions.

      Thanks for reading and your words of support. This is exactly why i felt compelled to write this article. I, for one, am sick and tired of hearing those self righteous bigots being defended for spreading these falsehoods and hiding behind their religious facades as if it is a magic shield that exonerates them from any blame in the discord present in our society today.

    • d.william profile imageAUTHOR


      6 years ago from Somewhere in the south

      Your religious misguidance may seem genuine to you, but they are not based on facts.

      You perceive anyone (me in this case) who disbelieves in organized religions as lost and troubled souls.

      My article is not based on any harm done to me personally, but what i have witnessed taking place in our society for the past 50+ years.

      Look at the news and see all the hateful rhetoric against a minority culture that religion has condemned and that is condoned by their followers and make your decision on what you see - not what you are told to believe.

      When literally thousands of "religious" people march in favor of hatred, intolerance and discrimination based on their religious teachings - you cannot conclude anything else other that what my title says: "Religions teach hatred". Hatred is not inbred, it is man made, and spread by word of mouth.

      You, personally, may not hate anyone, or any group, but your religious teachers and most of their followers believe that gay people are somehow evil, and actually have a choice in their lifestyles.

      Think for one moment, how you would feel if you were being forced to change your natural attraction to men, to being attracted to women. Find that repulsive? That is exactly how the homosexual feels when society tell him/her that they only have to pray away their 'gay'. The argument that it is unnatural, only applies to those who do not understand this phenomenon. Mother Nature does not make this kind of mistake, and the devil's influence is only in the minds of those who want to control others to conform to their own beliefs. And the biblical references are thwarting the truth to in effect cause dissemination and division through hatred and intolerance. This somehow, in a twisted sort of way, is meant to justify your faith in following an imperfect, and unproven dogma.

      It is I who feels sorry for those who hate in the name of their God.

      What a sad world we have become when we judge others by archaic ignorance.

      I was raised in a huge southern town, but thank goodness my parents taught me to explore the world and learn to think for myself.

      I used to hurt all the time by watching the news and the wars and the injustice of it all. Now I don't have that pain because I finally realized that I was blaming God/Satan for everything. Now, I know the truth. It is just us being animals. There is no God.

      Your hurts must be deeper than your own blood filled veins........

      Your anguish must be your guiding force.....

      In order to think, for even a moment, that someone "taught" me, to hate you, to the depths, that you apparently hate your ownself.

      It is YOU, who will not allow your own happiness.

      I am happy to have you both comment in good spirit and greater clarity. Now if we can just get the rest of the world to join us, we just might change a thing or two in this hateful world we find ourselves in today. L.O.L. Peace.

      @d.william. Apparently I didn't express myself clearly here. My point is that the entire Chic-Fil-A controversy (and a host of others) was caused by Bible believing so-called Christians. My message was to those Christians. They profess to be doing God's will. I never said that I support that belief. To assume that I believe anything in the Bible because I use it to explain a situation is a mistake. I use the Bible to show how hypocritical the people are who use it to try and control other people. They proclaim to be doing God's work, but have no clue what the instruction book says. I actually have read the Bible, and I believe that I understand it. The Bible does not authorize believers to force their doctrine on anyone. The Bible says that God gave us free choice. I could just as easily have been using the Communist Manifesto to argue a point, or the Koran. When people choose to live by a set of written rules, it helps to understand the rules before embarking on attempts to force those rules onto others. Christians, for the most part, do neither. I have never voted for a law to limit free choice, and I never will.

      Sorry for shouting. This subject just gets me kind of riled up :-)

      drbill assumes to be morally righteous because he has something to blame for evil. The truth is that evil is only a label and only has meaning to those who judge.

      I probably need to clarify that. Fire - is it evil or good? Depends on how you look at it, doesn't it?

      Thanks for your added support. Unfortunately those who are so deeply indoctrinated with guilt and fear of their gods of hatred and wrath they will never be able to fully understand just how illogical their false beliefs really are. When all logic and rationality fails to convince others of their beliefs, the indelibly endowed religious can only invoke the image of Satan to prove i am right and they are wrong, because their bibles tell them it is so. It would be comical if not so sad.

    • d.william profile imageAUTHOR


      6 years ago from Somewhere in the south

      Thanks for reading and commenting. However, yours is merely your own opinion, and yours alone. You cannot honestly believe that because you believe this nonsensical stuff that others must believe it too?

      You are quite obviously so fully indoctrinated by your childhood brainwashing that there is no room for your logic to doubt. There is no sin, or retribution for having your own thoughts, or me for having mine. I will not be judged by your standards. Please learn where the bible came from, who put it together, and why, before you profess to know that your truths are greater than historical facts.

      Satan was created to frighten men into submission. Yes, there are evil people in this world driven by selfishness, but that is just the nature of mankind itself.

      People without brainwashing who believe in the power of the spirit of man are probably more righteous than any self proclaimed religious interpreter of their ill conceived bibles, Qurans, ot Torahs, etc...

      Confused? Hatred and intolerance? Of course a creator God would not want mankind to have these traits. The Bible tells us where these come from: the author of confusion--Satan. The Bible also tells us that Christians are not exempt from Satan's influence. Just look around. Millions of supposed Christians everywhere are behaving like there is no God and no compassion for other people. People who hate, judge, control, confuse, manipulate, restrain, deceive, or in any way take another person's right to freedom of choice and freedom of lifestyle are not Christians, and God will deal with them for being hypocrites. From the beginning of creation, the number one God-given right to mankind was the freedom of choice: to choose to follow God's direction or not. What person has the authority to take away from mankind what was given by God?

      "One cannot possibly believe in a benevolent and almighty Creator and also believe that hatred and intolerance is inherent in the Creator's intentions for mankind."

      They can and they do. Why do they not notice that God talks about smiting his enemies? Why would God have enemies if he "loves" us all?

      Religious people are so confused.

      Any "theory" may be 'mathematically' , or otherwise viable, but being viable will never be empirical proof. Just another possibility to ponder.

      I love the saying that small minds talk about people, average minds talk about current events, and great minds talk about ideas and possibilities.

      I do not believe in prophecies. After the fact, one can find a situation to fit those old "prophecies" somewhere in the world if you look hard enough and twist the meanings around to suit your "proof" of the fulfillment of any old purported "prophecies".

      The proof of religions teaching hatred is disgustingly visible today when thousands of "christians" turn out in support of discrimination, hatred and intolerance against a minority in their misguided beliefs that nature is wrong, and the ignorance and superstitions of man is right.

      As i said, these are learned behaviors readily accepted by the "self righteous" people in our society. We must always have someone to hate to appease our gods.

      Good job on the hub. I think what you are seeing is actually the fulfillment of a prophecy...that in these times, everyone, even the very elect, would be following after the beast. From the Catholic priest scandals to the hatefilled protests at the cemeteries where American soldiers are being buried.
