text Pope Ratzinger competes with Dalai Lama fish, Tuesday, Mar 11 2008, 9:20pm
Following hot on the heels of the Dalai Lama’s flagrant, hypocritical, political pursuits against China, the Catholic Pope – who gets by with a helping ‘hand’ from his friends – has updated the seven deadly sins.

Cherie Blair: the tormented face of religion image The Burden of Guilt: Tony Blair converts to Catholicism barra, Sunday, Dec 23 2007, 10:40am
Murderers carry an exceedingly heavy burden, how much greater the burden for mass murderers? Whether or not Blair’s conversion is the result of a pressing need to relieve the pain of his inner torment or is related to other factors – his wife is a devout RC – the guilt factor is difficult to dismiss.

Tom Cruise of the 'Church' image Germany seeks to completely ban Scientology finch, Friday, Dec 7 2007, 11:17am
A move in the right direction some would say but why stop at sci-fi 'religion,' Scientology – the Abrahamic three – Judaism, Islam and Christianity -- pose a greater threat to world peace. Scientology, a product of the mind of sci-fi writer and con-man, L. Ron Hubbard, seeks to relieve its followers of their hard-earned money while the Abrahamic three seek to facilitate the millennium i.e. a global holocaust! On a danger to society scale Scientology does not ‘hold a candle’ to the murderous Abrahamic three. (story and 1 image)

'Blasphemous' bear image Religion: a Global plague of the Mind peptide, Tuesday, Nov 27 2007, 10:33am
Try as we might we cannot ignore the mindless, inane and violent antics of religionists. It is clear that this particular social disease must be dealt with before more mindless violence affects our respective societies. The principal offenders are of the Abrahamic tradition; even a cursory read of the Old Testament describes an insane, genocidal, violent, morbidly moody, God, who is full of contradictions – a nut case in other words! I challenge any theologian from the Abrahamic tradition, Judaism, Islam or Christianity to prove otherwise! Their ‘God’ in his own words, via the mediumistic talents of his ‘prophets,’ is a psychopathic basket case. It’s time the human race grew up and relinquished irrational, infantile, violent, fantasies. (story and 1 comment and 3 images)

Jesus/Dionysus image Jesus, a fag? fish, Saturday, Nov 24 2007, 10:09am
The Jews consider an unmarried adult male as not quite right, not human in fact. Jesus was in the prime of his libidinous life when he was killed at age 33 yet we have no clear record of any sexual liaison with anyone – male, female or hamster! The question is therefore begged, what were Jesus’ sexual predilections and what revealing information of a sexual nature exists in texts today. (story and 1 image)

george1984.jpg imagePDF Document Religion: from Failure to Liability fish, Tuesday, Nov 20 2007, 9:59am
It’s dreamboat time in pathological paradise! Yes, the topic is religion, a favourite of mindless morons regardless of race or nationality. No human society has been spared; religion induced murder, destruction, violence and insanity knock on every door, hut, tent and lean-to on the planet. But before proceeding I would, in a sentence, highlight the fact that ALL religions are FAILED – irrefutable fact! Furthermore religious leaders are the most brazen and despicable hypocrites on the planet!

With the exception of the homicidal, sociopathic, Jew God, Jehovah, who delights in genocide (Jericho) and displays a weakness for gold and silver (for fuck’s sake) religions teach PEACE! However, religious leaders throughout history have interpreted PEACE as WAR! (story and 1 image and 1 attached file)

text “If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him!” sadh, Wednesday, Oct 31 2007, 11:05pm
The title is also my favourite adage pertaining to what some people mistakenly refer to as a religion. The major religions are structured, social/political organisations administered and led by men. In contrast Buddhism kills the principal object that may become an idol or object of veneration. It thereby protects itself from the corruption that has made the world’s ‘great religions’ a FARCE and a gathering place for idiots, slaves, fools and manipulators!

['Show me your God and I will expose your psychopathology.' More power to the irreverent Chasers crew for exposing the inanity and absolute imbecility of ALL RELIGION. What a difference a 'slave' makes!

We lay down an open challenge to any religious leader to verify the existence of their man-made God and to prove the validity of their faith and the ‘divine’ origins of their culturally produced Scriptural text, you bunch of vacuum-headed, demented, idiot, slaves!

Here’s a little philosophical challenge for the slave masters: The One True 'God' is infinite; Infinity is ALL-INCLUSIVE therefore God is also represented buy shit skids in toilet bowls! Care to challenge self-evident TRUTH, you lying, sicko, aberrant HYPOCRITES? Ed.]

Ratzinger image Can the World afford Religious Hypocrites today? budgie, Monday, Oct 22 2007, 11:44am
The genus of religious leader carries with it nasty character traits and virulent psychological disease regardless of the particular religion the leader represents. Last week saw the appalling hypocrisy of the Dalai Lama – in total denial -- willingly accept honours from the Holocaust President, G W Bush. It was refreshing to witness this much-venerated FRAUD finally display his true form to the world. However, just prior to the Dalai Lama’s self-exposure, a historically consistent hypocrite [the Pope] was engaged in the usual sordid politics of religion – an excellent expose’ from FPIF follows this introduction.

Hypocrisy in gold -- an enduring reminder! image The World is brimming with Hypocrites budgie, Tuesday, Oct 16 2007, 10:38pm
Today, revered hypocrite, the Dalai Lama, accepted a ‘gold medal’ from a nation that is responsible for a pre-emptive illegal invasion that has killed one million innocent civilians and displaced four million others. If the Dalai Lama had a cause to free his people and incriminate China it just went up the spout – are Iraqi deaths less important than Tibetan deaths to a Buddhist HYPOCRITE? The actions of the Dalai Lama prove what we’ve always maintained, religious leaders make the best hypocrites! (story and 2 images)

Arch-conservative, Archbishop Jensen disapproves of women Bishops image The navel-gazing Anglicans of Oz fish, Thursday, Sep 27 2007, 1:09pm
All the great religious reformers of history are known for taking religion to the streets, as is occurring in Burma today. Taking their cue or lead from their founders some believers display the bravery and fearlessness required to meet life’s challenges today! The Buddha and Christ were men of social REVOLUTION, who, when faced with corruption and injustice, launched peaceful attacks on the ruling elites of their time and effected lasting social change as is evident thousands of years after their initial campaigns.

text Conservatism and anal retention fish, Saturday, Aug 11 2007, 2:06pm
Conservatives throughout the world are only distinguished by the ‘colour of their shirts.’ Islamist contractionism pursues (fascist) central control in the form of a Caliphate. American contractionism is pursuing (totalitarianism) surveillance and the reduction of liberties and freedoms at speed. Here in Oz the minister for communications is attempting to implement information controls in the form of filtering Internet material at backbone or ISP level. Regardless of the area of ‘concern’ ALL conservatives SEEK TO GAIN CONTROL and impose their realities onto everyone! The means vary from theocratic coercion, legal subversions to brutal enforcement and violent implementations, whether the rest of us like it or not. No shortage of anal contractionists exists anywhere in the world today – the amusing thing is watching the same sickness manifest in various cultural forms. (story and 1 comment)

[No apologies for the title, as it applies to everyone.] In today’s world far too many killers and murderers are utilising religion as a method of social manipulation, control and (believe it if you would face the reality of your ‘religion’) to JUSTIFY MURDER, THEFT and WAR! If that in itself doesn’t sound an alarm in the heads of all devotees of the ONE nameless, peerless, INFINITE God of ALL, then please go for a walk or entertain yourself with something else, this paper is NOT for you!

Oil Anti-Christ image The Apostles of Deception Charles Sullivan via rialator, Saturday, Apr 14 2007, 1:32pm
What passes for Christianity among the people, like so many things American, is not the genuine article. The sermons that rise from many of the pulpits of the churches of America are, I suspect, as counterfeit as a six-dollar bill; as phoney as the people running the country. But those whose faith is blind are incapable of seeing truth. That is the trouble with blind faith. It does not, it cannot, see. I have always been wary of organised religion. (story and 2 images)

text Atheist Richard Dawkins on 'The God Delusion' Terrence McNally via rialator, Wednesday, Jan 24 2007, 7:50pm
In the last few years, Americans have seen the dark side of religion. The events of 9/11 brought home the extremes to which some radical Muslims would go to defeat infidels and attain virgins. At home, we've seen assaults on the separation of Church and State and attacks on the teaching of evolution and the distribution of life-saving condoms. And now, it appears the godless are fighting back.

text Inanity for Xmas finch, Sunday, Dec 24 2006, 8:48am
The arch-conservative Anglican Dean of Sydney's St. Andrews Cathedral, Phil Jensen, has delivered a Christmas message worthy of the most mindless, inane comment that the infamous neo-con war monger and lunatic Donald “unknown knowns” Rumsfeld could have delivered. The Dean stated that “Christmas is about God giving, that God gave the gift of God and the gift of God, is God," (!) Those Australians who imagined that mindless, unqualified statements only issued from American neo-cons be advised, conservative pro-American Evangelicals are alive and very ‘unwell’ in conservative Anglican Sydney.

BANKSY -- virgin with iPod image The Plague of Evangelicalism: An Aberrant Sect from the USA fish, Friday, Apr 7 2006, 6:11am
The very American travelling circus that was tent religion matured and found expression in the mass ‘conversions’ (come on down and be saved style) of Billy Graham, demagogue and showman, the forerunner of today’s Evangelicals. Plastic religion for a plastic society, Graham invented ‘Kentucky fried religion’, a fast consumable product that was accessible to the masses, requiring nothing but gleefully running to the stage and in spectacular fashion being ‘saved’ by Billy or one of his many imitators. Modern Evangelicalism was born, long arduous hours of meditation and prayer in the pursuit of Deity became a thing of the medieval past. (story and 1 image)

Fuss image Religion as Social Liability finch, Thursday, Feb 2 2006, 1:48pm
The recent religious furore over certain (cartoon) publications in the secular press unambiguously identifies ‘religion’ as little more than cheap politics; or put in simpler more accurate terms; religion is the politics of the mentally deficient. Consider the possibility of an infinite creator/God and the arrogance of those who actually think or imagine they or any other finite being could possibly pollute, insult or deface that God. A characteristic of Godhead is IMMUTABILITY! Rationalists would refer to the basic logic of the inability of the finite to apprehend the infinite (God); the two states are mutually exclusive. But it is obvious that ‘God’ is as far removed from the present issue as day is from night. (story and 1 comment and 2 images)
