The religion divide here. Will it divide the movement?Submitted by punkouter on Mon, 08/19/2013 - 10:44
I was brought up religious not that I had a choice. Now I not only don't care for organized religions but I actively despise them. Religion has been used for many years to control people and to serve and justification to repress other people ex. Philippine–American War).. And people constantly twisting it to fit their personal agenda (ex. KKK)
Lately a lot of posts here has been pointing to recent news items to some prophecy by jesus/quoting bible verses..
I don't mind people believe in whatever magical spirit they want no matter how little it makes sense as long as it does not interfere with my life.
I like Ron Paul because he stayed on topic about what was important without bringing jesus into it.. Younger people are more secular and it is a turn off to us when you start justifying libertarian ideas I agree with with bible verses
I can't relate to the 'Tea Party' myself.. I walked by a protest and they had the Obama poster with the hitler moustache and that garbage that gives media ammo to dismiss libertarians... And while some conspiracy theories may be true.. when everything that happens in the news people here link to a conspiracy it kinda looks silly to me... Id rather the movement be intelligent/logical/common sense and not be the butt of a joke..
Rand Paul is ok.. I am sad he is status quo on the drug wars.. but I guess at the moment hes the only realistic option to be excited about...
Anyone feel me here? Or am I coming across as a dummy ?
