Thank you for God Dealers and Buddha Pests

Got Religion?
How’s that workin’ for ya?
Does it make you behave? Does it scare you into silence, force you to intrude on strangers, compel you to stock up on canned goods and flashlights, elevate and separate you from others, make you feel special, assuage your guilt and anxiety about your own humanity, give you a reason to exist, wake up in the morning, start a war, avoid bacon, shame your children, leave the exact amount of your electric bill in an expensive gold dish passed around expensive mahogany pews to accommodate expensive forgiveness for something you had nothing to do with (being born)?
Yeah, how’s that workin’ for ya?
Can your God drive faster than Billy’s God? Can your God kill all other Gods? Can your God create inner peace—how about any peace? Does your God wanna save you from your own life but doesn’t mind taking the life of others in the interim?
Thank you for keeping your fear to yourself and please stop voting.
