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

America: a society motivated by love but fueled by hate.
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! ''
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. 
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.Signed: Heather Cronk, Managing Director and proud Maryland resident
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.

- Maryland Anti-Equality Campaign: Gays Who Don't Change Are 'Deserving Of Death' |

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' Deceit and Lies.
We sit around waiting for the world to change, but the only ones who can change it is us collectively.
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.
- HATRED, The Truth about the Lies. Voting on "EQUAL" rights? A Political Quagmire.
The origins of hatred, bigotry, and intolerance. A product of mankind alone.
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!!
- Modern religious wars
We are here talking about religious wars that seem the worse of any wars, because it involves people beliefs, and the beliefs are the spiritual inner part of people and hard to change.
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.
