Religious Observance Required (an acrostic poem)

Religious Observance Required (an acrostic poem)
 
Read the holy book, this is not optional
Eat only food approved by God
Love everyone except the blasphemers
Indulge in practice and ritual
Gays are sinful, do not accept them
Internal voices proclaim his goodness
Offerings taken to do Godís work of course
Unworthy sinners seeking salvation
Sin will be punished by death and hell
 
Obsessive is the nature of religion
Baptising children out of fear of hell
Slavery is expected by God, he owns you
Elevating leaders to a God like status
Rendering us to be oppressed people
Vacant minds defy logic and reason
Agnostics are lazy and cowardly atheists
No need for religion it is simply poison
Contest the very existence of God
Evil, like religion, is a mental illness
 
Respect should never be automatic
Earning respect by your words and deeds
Question everything, find your own truth
Understand the meaning of humanity
Islam is not the enemy, religion is
Rebel against all types of forced religion
Ethics and morals need no religion
Death is not to be feared, no Heaven or Hell
