GOD?

"GOD" seems to be silent and invisible, behaving just like myths always behave.

Thankfully we no longer throw virgins into volcanos, or divine tea leaves or throw black cat bones.

Today we have a society driven by science and reason.

Sure, every now and then someones pretends to smear a layer of superstition or religion on top, but it doesn't change the really important things.

Psychopathic wards are full of folks who believe they are napoleon, and others who believe they are jesus.

Religion, taken too far, is indistinguishable from psychotic hallucinations and delusions.

"Praying the gay away" falls into that latter category.

Just want to mention that I might be gone for a few days, maybe a week, before I'll be able to get back to a computer. Surgury (minor, but annoying) coming up.
