Abstinence is better than cure

Condoms make AIDS crisis worse?

Add one to my list of religious leaders who need to be repeatedly punched in the face until they shut the fuck up about anything except the fairy story they believe in. Actually, that's a pretty long list. I have been reading a book about Al Qaeda, in which I noted that one "alim" had issued a fatwa explaining why it was fine to murder women and children in the name of Allah. About that, I'd like to point something out. Allah is supposed to be super powerful, right? So he can arrange things however he chooses. He doesn't need nutters to blow up the rest of us because he disapproves of us. He can do it for himself if he chooses. This never seems to occur to the slightly hard of thinking bin Ladens of this world.

Yes, you read that right. I'm saying that your bin Laden must be a bit thick if he at the same time believes his god is all powerful but needs a bunch of slightly dim beardo weirdos to blow the fuck out of civilians for him. Dude, he can smite us himself if he wants us smote. Our continuing unsmitedness must speak to his not wanting us smitten. Amirite?

Well, either that or there is no Allah. Yeah, I know, shocking blasphemy, sacrilege, lack of respect for the views of billions of people. But here's the thing. I don't respect the views of people who believe in astrology because their views are nonsense. I don't respect the views of people who think that stones have spirits because, erm, they don't. Are you seeing it? Just because you slap "religion" onto whatever bullshit you come up with doesn't mean you should have that bullshit respected.

Still, I LOL'd at this comment on the Comment is free site:
Ah, sexual health advice from an aged celibate virgin.

And there's the problem. These people need to join us in the fucking real world. Their fantasies kill. I mean, yeah, it's true that the only way to ensure you don't get AIDS through sexual contact is to not have any sexual contact, but get real, dude. It would be equally true to say the only way to ensure that you become thin is to sew your mouth shut so you can't eat anything, or the only way to ensure that you don't have a car accident is never to go anywhere in a car. Or that the only way the Pope is not going to say anything deeply stupid is if the old fool just keeps his fucking mouth shut until Jeebus takes him to his cloud.

I still FAIL to understand why so many many people gulp down all this crap in whatever flavor.

They're afraid. It's easy. Their friends are doing it or have done it. They don't have to think about it anymore.

It reminds me of "The Man With Two Brains" or whatever the name of that old Steve Martin movie was. He's about to inject the hooker with a substance that will kill her brain.

And she says, "I don't mind."

I think they don't mind.
