i dont like the old testament it frightened me as a child
a vicious old bishop promising a 7 year old hellfire
a jehovahs witness selling armageddon rags at the door
the israelites a problematical bunch
i mean i started out wanting to cheer them on
but i find them a barbaric brutal slippery stupid crowd
if they are the chosen people i dont want to be chosen
if thats the best old jehovah could come up with
a whinging whining bunch like all the others
why should i be happy when jericho falls down?
or the philistines get their dicks cut off (J asked for this!)
whats it got to do with me these garbled old fables?
its not that i mind them so much in themselves
but silly people interpreting this stuff literally has been a bane to this earth
the popes and bishops have used this tripe to murder you and me
this ugly old hopeless myth of big old nasty jehovah the jealous geezer
has been used to kill and tax and torture and molest us common people
since the day this malarkey was first adopted by the first ever pope
and…have they ever apologised for the murder and mayhem?
no they just go on pretending theyre holier than thou when the truth is in front of your nose
jehovah is a tent god invented by a middle eastern tribe millenia ago in a brutal past
i ask you is this character consistent with your vision of this world and its beauty?
how can a holy book contain such a load of superstitious mumbo jumbo and violent claptrap?
and how can people living in the 21st century give any credence to these myths?
the silly stories and borrowed bits…half of it nicked from other people..it is beyond belief
the dopey idiotic episodes one calamity after another
everything jehovah touches turns to death and destruction and plagues and warts
look what he does to job? does anyone here condone that?
fuck youd be better off under lucifer another imaginary cat
these 2 fictional constructions straight out of a badly written sci fi cheapie
battling it out for our souls…gimme a break!
and you go to hell unless you “believe” in Jehovah the jealous geeza
unless you “believe” in him you will go to hell
well that makes perfect sense doesnt it?
do you “believe” in him?
you better or you’ll jolly well go to hell, forever!
and thats a long time, my little pigs.
And dont go blaming Jehovah for this mess
its all that cunning Lucifer that rascally angel
I mean Jehovah made him and all and knew itd all end in tears
i mean Jehovah could presumably squash old Lucy pretty easy one would imagine
and let the rest of us off the hook
why wait till judgement day…?
on judgement day Jehovah will call my name
or i expect one of the helper angels will:
steven john kilbey eh? tell me. did you believe in me?
um, errr no sorry Jehovah but if…
Sorry son its off to hell with you even though you werent very naughty really
the whole damn thing is so incredibly silly
it really doesnt warrant me wasting anymore time demolishing a cobbled up book of old tent stories
not very good or interesting stories that dont seem to have much morality or anything
i come away disliking jehovah and his chosen people equally and contemptuously
bollocks! i say
the real god is the opposite of all this
he contains every single desirable quality and attribute
this stupid bible has put people off the real god
these stupid buildings with their stained glass miseries
these corrupt and lecherous popes and priests
the disgusting destruction and pillaging of the new world
all sanctioned by this twisted misunderstanding of a load of old stories
this is not god
it is man at his worst
christ was a cool cat and everyone here knows i dig him
why do you have to gild the lily and make him more than that?
its all accretion written after the fact.
made up by a pack of blokes in silly gowns who wanted to control you and me
and they have wreaked havoc on this world with this ludicrous book
what good has it ever done anyone?
