Sparking up a light putting on Grooveshark and starting up a new blog entry. Let's see what comes to mind.
A while ago I posted a link to a video of Brian Warner (Marilyn Manson) giving a speech about Violence and he touched upon the subject of the "God bandaid". The God bandaid is when someone that's wronged the fuck out of someone else in any way, between lying, stealing, raping or murdering or anything that would piss someone off enough for you too hate them, they then "turn to god". They claim to change and maybe they do. Then all the Christians and Catholics and Muslims and pretty much all religions, they say, oh well it's alright that they lied or stole or raped or murdered. It's alright because god is good right? So we should forgive them. Then everyone forgives them for what they've done and everything's better. Because that's a socially acceptable get out of jail card for anyone. I turned to god. That is all anyone will need to get massive amounts of support from a certain group. It's really that easy.
This tactic has been plaguing human history for as long as religion has been around. It's the easy way out in my opinion. The universe has a way of circling itself around and the things you avoided the first time around will catch you when it comes full circle again. It's called karma by some people but I call it life. Changing gears, what if you had a son or a daughter and some scumbag killed or raped them, and they got like 10 years in jail for it, because that's all these people get these days, because the system is so flawed. But let's say 5 years in they decide there sorry and they turn to god. They talk to a preacher and then the preacher is convinced there changed, because that's there job, to forgive. Maybe they have parole in a couple years. Assuming the said priest is at that meeting and tells everyone it's okay to let this piece of shit out. Also assuming at least one if not all of the parole board is Christian, they'll most likely say, sure you can go out on parole because your changed. What the fuck would go through your mind.
Would you forgive them? They have the God bandaid so everyone else does, but do you? Is it a crime if a person who rapes your child or kills them or anything like that too be walking the streets at all? I think it is. "But he's turned to God!" Turning to God or being part of the club they call Christianity doesn't allow the right to not pay for what you've done no matter what religion they are from. What would you do bloggers? Would you forgive, or would you get revenge? There's been tons of stories of people getting sent to jail for assaulting or killing a rapist or murderer. Do you think that's fair?
People are the uncertain option in the game plan of the God card.
