Stupid things religious wingnuts say

A sensible slogan.
I know, I know -- it's a broad topic. But you have to start somewhere. For me, one of the most irritating things religious loons do is when they place themselves in cosmic dramas. They're just so important, doncha know.

For example, you're watching a TV report about a rape that was stopped when a woman happened upon the perp and victim as it was going down. The rapist runs; the woman is saved. Hallelujah!

But when the hero is interviewed, she says: "Do I think I was in the right place at the right time by coincidence? Do I think it was an accident that I arrived in time to stop this? No, I was supposed to be here."

That's right, dear. All the goings-on in the cosmos are about you and your random walks through the neighborhood. Makes perfect sense. It wasn't just that your hemorrhoids hurt so much that you had to stand up and walk around, and stumbled upon these two. That can't be it. No, it's God hisself who put you there.

I swear, these twits make me ill.

What drives you crazy about the things religious nitwits say? Again, I know: it's a hugely broad topic. But if you had to pick one thing that drives you batty, what would it be?

Hmm, I wonder if the abused child feels he has a good life; the hunger and homeless, did they wake up this morning and utter "life is good"?

Yup, that'll do too. I always think of the kids buried under earthquakes. What exactly does god do for them? Nothing. Hallelujah.

I hope I'm successful enough as a writer to merit hatred from these insane religious people. My newspaper tells me they're praying that George Michaels dies of pneumonia. I just hope they hate me as much.
