When are we, as a society in the 21st Century, ever going to acknowledge the fundamental truth of all religions? Every single major religion began around a campfire with an old man telling a story about how we got here and where we are going. From the Sumerians to the Greeks to the Jews to the Navajos, creation myths spawned stories of heroes and villains and eventually sundry forms of heaven and hell. The mythologists soon learned that they wielded a special authority in their tribe and nobody wants to lose authority so rituals and dogma were established to control the pathetic masses and finally we have a plethora of clerics, shamans, priests and pastors telling us what we should believe and how we should behave. It is all rubbish and has absolutely nothing to do with morality. We can be perfectly good persons without religion.
The audacity of anybody to think that he or she knows how somebody else should think and behave is appalling. At one point in time there were a bunch of bickering tribes wandering around the desert in North Africa. Along came a dude named Jesus and what transpired? Peace on earth? Hardly. Almost EVERY human –wrought catastrophe has been the result of religion, including The Holocaust. How about discussing The Crusades? How about the Battle of Kosovo? What havoc was wrought after a guy named Martin Luther posted some remarks on his church door? What about “The Troubles” in Northern Ireland? What about the Hutus and Tutsis? ALL religious nonsense. Look around the world today: the Rohingas in Myanmar, the Yazidis in Iraq, Israel and Palestine, Muslims and Buddhists in Kashmir: all religious bulshit.
Opposition to Roe v Wade is religious. Opposition to gay marriage is religious. Opposition to climate science is religious.
So here is a little island of maybe one hundred people living primitively in their loincloths and this little shit Christian missionary wants to go where he is very clearly not wanted to introduce these innocent people to the concept of “original sin”? He is no martyr. He is a disgusting Christian narcissist who deserved the uncomfortable, slow death he got on the beach. Let him rot on that beach and leave him there. Do not disturb those innocent people any more. He knew what he was getting into and he got what he deserved. End of story.
