I say “Amen” to all that – or in my case, the word would be “Amin”. Think about it!
I get so ticked off when I read some Creationists’ babble concerning Jesus being their saviour and the wicked scientists planting fake bones and stuff to hoodwink us into believing that that wicked Charles Darwin and all his cronies might be right.
OK. So someone may be happy to believe that the world was made in six days and that civilization goes back about eight thousand years and that the Little Baby Jesus saved someone’s granny from terminal cancer, bubonic plague and a bad case of double incontinence. Fine! If that is their belief, and if they should believe that all Muslims and Roman Catholics and Jews and homosexuals Democrats are bound for everlasting hellfire, I will stand up for their rights to say so... but not on HubPages, when all this site seemed to stand for once, was a platform on which to display writing capabilities, whether in Prose, Poetry, Fiction, Rational Debate or otherwise.
Yes. Get rid of the God Squad¸ if you like, and send them to some dark little corner where they can moan and fulminate to their hearts’ content in their little close minds, with all that groaning and gnashing of teeth which they do so well. Or grab those others, the ones who are even worse, to my mind; those with the smiling faces and bright eyes, only just managing to hide their little intolerances.
But if you want to send anyone into outer darkness or everlasting hellfire, why not bundle up those who won’t, or can’t, spell or punctuate properly. Drag them into the light and explain to them that their, they’re and there, for example, actually do have differing functions and must not be used randomly when and where (or wear, some may say) they feel a need to use one.
