If I owned a magic wand I would make every religion that has ever been known to man disappear. Catholicism, Islamism, Protestantism, Judaism,  Baptism, those Latter Day Saint whackos, the lot, even the Salvos who have been politicised and hijacked by the money men.

Goooorne! … it would be illegal to practise the symbolic eating of human flesh and the drinking of human blood. It would be illegal to indoctrinate and baptise innocent little kids into horrible fear- and hate-filled occults.

Cathedrals would be turned into art galleries and mosques into council atriums. Treks to Mecca would only be for pop concerts, the Vatican would have a giant garage sale for a month of Sundays and donate the receipts to the poor.

Practising Ramadan would be permissible, but only for the full year.

Popes and Cardinals would have proper jobs on floats at the gay mardi gras with honest day jobs as car salesmen and solicitors.

The clergy would find boring jobs in the ABC promoting global warming, nuns would run phone sex hotlines and do outcalls for frustrated priests, leaving little choirboys free to climb trees and kick footballs.

Muslims caught with their bums in the air would receive instant enemas with fire hoses and Imams and Mullahs would be available for experiments in taxidermy and cadaver decomposition rates.

No more sadistic images of some poor bugger nailed to a cross, no more nonsense about pregnant virgins or 72 unpregnant ones. 

Politicians would have to stop asking some old bloke in the sky for advice (which has never worked that well) and start thinking for themselves and prayers to open Parliament would be replaced with dirges like, “Good old Collingwood forever…”.

The increase in global productivity would ensure there are no more financial meltdowns and there would be no reason to hate anything at all,

… except for Collingwood of course.

JR sounds like he was traumatised as a 6 year old 60 years ago. Still remembers it. That’s how much of an impression it made on him. Sounds like it was not a very good start in life for this poor dude. But id doesn’t sound like you were flogged when you was 6 years old. Sounds like it would not have done you any harm. Might have taught you to have some empathy. You silly silly girl.\

Hardwired into the human brain apparently and long used by self appointed elite to control and fleece “the mob”. Was the Godless USSR a better and safter place for its millions of people than life under the Czars and the Russian Christian religion ? Same for China and other countries who have embraced Godlessness ? Just asking

Darn, I hit the enter key before I’d finished! So what are we dealing with? This is my second point, you are dealing with a spiritual force that you don’t understand or are even aware of. Ask yourself where does good and evil originate from? Why is the human spirit bent towards evil? You can ponder and discuss this with your mates, but won’t be able to provide the answer until you recognize you trying to solve the problem in the flesh, that is intellect, emotion and feelings. It won’t work, there will always be unintended consequences of your decisions.… Read more »

Larry, I agree on some of your points but you and most other commentators miss the key point here. Firstly religion by definition is about personal power ultimately descending into bullying, intimidation, violence, genocide. As some of your commentators have noted, more people are killed in conflict outside of religion.

And here’s me thinking the catholics included rape and paedophilia in their priests curriculum. Seems the Royal Commission is a waste of money then and Pell has no case to answer, if you think sg has a credible point of view?

Larry! Isn’t Collingwood support a religion in itself? I’m not religious and I don’t think Jesus was either, if you consider it was the religious zealots of his time who thought they had a corner on religion, that hung him. So go ahead and do away with all religion, but then Larry you have one minor problem. What do you do with God?

BB – you are confusing the old testament with the new – and seem to think that Jesus and his disciples had the benefit of the new testament as a guide. They did not. It was written about them, perhaps in part by them, and was a departure from the Judaism of the day.

After the Earth had been around for about 4.5 billion years, man created god……………… He thought it gave him the answers he was looking for… so he created 2868 more gods and godesses….. until Abraham came along…. and one big, almighty god was created! This god was so angry, demanding and frightening, that no other gods were made after that…. (although he showed up in a few different versions… Allah, “God”, Yehova, Christ…) And it was like this for a long time… until 1953 when L. Ron Hubbard created Scientology and Xenu was born. … And most of you still… Read more »

Cathedrals would be turned into art galleries and mosques into council atriums, etc. I couldn’t agree more, I have thought this way for many years, only I would open up the churches to the homeless.

Sorry to break the news to you (and the rest of the gullible readers), but footy in all its forms is a religion as well. It is forced upon us whether we like it or not. Every day, and mostly on weekends, the prayer meetings are held in massive stadiums, where brain dead sycophants scream their chants and prayers and even bet money on which footy god they worship most. And the god players get paid massive amounts of alms and worship. And the god managers take obscene amount of worshipers cash for their personal benefit. And the politicians conveniently… Read more »
