If god was alive
he'd fucking hate you.

You with your endless and
spineless prostrations
for the wings you desire so much,
It amazes me how
you don't choke on the lies
that fill your mouth and
deafen the worlds children
so that they become like you,
the same way of eating, speaking,
thinking and even fucking,
you turn humanity into robots
instead of embracing
the wonderful and rich life
that is all around us,
falling in love with differences
and celebrating them.

You say your faith gives you comfort,
makes you happy,
and therein lies the failure of god.

It doesn't make you happy,
you won't be happy until everyone
else believes it too.  
And so the world bares witness on
a scale that makes the
earth weep herself,
everyday we see how
the religious treat each other
with there bombs and bullets
and no respect for life.

Yes, if any of your gods
were alive.....They'd fucking hate you.

Oscuridad Mas Alla - The Elephant In The Living Room
(Darkness Beyond)

The fear of the unknown
Drives one to adoration
Since time immemorial,
We idolized not because of love
But because we were afraid
Of bad luck, of wrath
Of famine, of flood
Of disaster, of death
Of loosing what little we own
And so we pray and beg for salvation
To the stones, animals, plants
Elements, deities, monarchs
To Allah, Buddah, Mary and Christ

Uncovering the mystery
Pays a price that was too high
Untill one is defeated
War was fought until one has died
The cost of ones belief
Is always paid with bloodbath
First with those of chickens
Then those of ones own child
At its wake, the wailing and echoes
Of grief and hate suffocates the mind
Until nothingness is claimed by its new God
The former Higher Beings now labeled
As legends and myths of the past

And then men learned philosophy
And harness the skills of litany
For fear alone can not sustain
The oppressed and terrorized masses
As men's Heart and Mind fornicated
And gave birth to Wisdom, Courage and Freewill
The kitchen was reconstructed
Separated the Church and State
They hired a new Chef as well as Chief
Gold flows freely from hands to hands... to hand
Blind faithfulness now has a dictionary
Invented Hope for the desperates and needy
And Love became their shield against all the unholy

There is no such thing as Good Religion
Only good people and good intentions
There is no such thing as Bad Religion
Only vulnerable and weak constitution
The table is full of both attractive and plain meals
And we all gets to be hungry sometime
Whatever we had decided to take in and consume
Relieved us, filled our cravings and sated us
At the time it happened, at the moment it did
For today, afterthoughts are tomorrow's bane
No mater how and who we choose to follow
And the whys and hows of it all
It make sense to the one who understood

The elephant stood as tall and mighty
For centuries, we kept it alive, thriving while thieving
Inside our very own living room, and we named it...
RELIGION
Against all reasons, we stood behind it, together yet...
DIVIDED
We find security as we suffer unknowingly, inside...
FAITHFULLY
We kill, we sacrifice, we order charity, demand alimony...
BELIEVING
Under the spell of mass delusion a God was born, twins with...
EVIL
And if evil has a name? Who would it be? Must be that...

Fizzle seems to have been offline for a few days. Perhaps you could move to the next entrant until he returns?

Spoiled all their lives in hells
Invented by your "social norms"
And spoken through the college dorms.
Think thee Wise,? Oh child in fern
There is no God dare wrong a worm.
Reflect on thyself & Know thy wealth
Then answer me questions anew
For blessings to you and only good health
I live not to fight for to war bid adieu.
For me and you
