So even atheists can go to heaven according to Pope Francis? May 25, 2013

When they elected him pope, I knew we were going to hear some interesting things. Pope Francis is a Jesuit after all.

What I know about Jesuits is that they tend more likely than not to be HIGHLY educated. To the point where they’ll even hedge on belief.

E.g.

Yeah and here’s the thing. As an atheist mine includes no belief in a supreme being, and no belief in heaven or hell. So how is it that if I do good deeds, which I have, I get a free pass according to the Pope?

Something is seriously amiss here.

You may well have heard about the Anoka-Hennepin school district. It’s where Michele Bachmann went to school. It’s also where the school board is comprised of clods who have no business being on that board.

Nine suicides in two years. Of the nine, four were LGBT.

I’m sick and tired of the religious bigots out there. You have no right to impose your morality on the rest of a community. And be careful where you tread because I for one want to make sure you all lose your tax exempt status. As I said on a facebook post, tax the churches, if they want to play in the political sphere, it’s their price of admittance.

We’re being beset with religious bigotry lately. Don’t they realize that they are putting the lives of the children at risk with their idiocy? That’s right, at risk. Whether it be a student who is LGBT, or a student who is an atheist, neither group, neigh no student deserves the abuse of bullying and name calling.

But as recent events here in the blue state of RI demonstrate, even the adults are guilty. For example, we have Rep. Peter Palumbo (D) Cranston calling Jessica Ahlquist an “evil little thing”. He said this when she’d won the case to remove a prayer banner in Cranston West High School. I’d expect better from a state representative but then I know who they are and I can tell you, we could do a lot better.

So lets stop the bullying at all levels, including from our elected representatives. There are reps out there who get it. As much as I dislike my state rep, he’s been fairly polite with me so he gets some slack there.

And I too should tone it down a little. I mean after all, my open criticism of people and my occasional use of ad hominem could be construed as bullying. But then, if you deserve a ration of shit, you’re going to get a ratio of it.

In memorial of the students who have taken their own lives due to the stupity of their school board:

Rest in peace. All of you. And know that you have many of we adults out there fighting for you to enjoy an education free of bullying.
