TIME to see... though it's what I've not been "hearing" that could mean
much more to me.
And what I've not been hearing are the songs that sing for sense...

that's true then what becomes of freedom we have
gained? What about our LIBERTY to sing a strange refrain?
What's the fate

Now I would try for balance and employ an alien view, so I draw back from
the problem as I can... There's too many that must HATE us, if their
reasons are unfounded, far too many than this writer

Religious Fundamentalism be DAMNED!
You are the fundamental enemy, sir or madam! YOU are the
abomination! YOU are the insanity we generate, the ignorance we
cleave to, and the misery that we endure! Moreover, you create your
own enemies because they won't sign on for your cultural Tyrannies,
your canted Prerogatives, and your twisted Views. They
won't validate your inbred and mal-affected corruption of faith.
Faith is supposed to mean efficacious hope, you boorish monsters!
You've turned faith into a justification of your ignorance, your
cowardice, and your crass authoritarianism!
But mostly it is oppressive fundamentalist arrogance that is
most offensive, as if a God that you created in your own image to do your
bidding was the ~remotest~ justification for your intrusive,
mal-homogenizing, and unwarranted behavior!
Religious Fundamentalism be DAMNED!
