No gods, No masters!

Some people have fans.

I have people who get so exercised over my refusal to march in lock step with their sort of creepy right wing hypocrisy that it some times seems as though attacking me is their primary source of content for their “blogs”.

I returned to my left wing hippie roots and a philosophy of believing in equality and the attacking of real enemies instead of bullying and beating up scape goats whose rank on the social scale regarding access to semi decent and humane treatment is some what below my own.

How un-Republi-Nazi is that on my part?  Why any day now they will be calling me a liberal and a socialist even though I tend to find those terms some what insulting as I tend to be several degrees more radical than that.

Which brings me to “No gods, No masters”, an anarchist slogan, the title of a collection of anarchist essays and the mast head motto of Margaret Sanger’s news paper.

One recent strange attack upon me declared I was angry with god and that I “hated god”.  Indifference, perhaps, more accurately skepticism and disbelief.

Hating god… Absurd…  That would be like hating Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy.  A waste of energy since I do not believe in the existence of god.  I am an Atheist, I do not believe in magic invisible misogynistic father figures in the sky who give you presents when you are good and send you to eternal pools of fire if you mess up and claim they do this because they love you.

I find the whole idea of religion absurd and oppressive not to mention something engaged in by mostly either weak minded people or people out to garner power or wealth by using the imaginary sky fairy as a weapon of extortion.

I haven’t believed since I was a kid and I’ve also scoped out Buddhism and the Wicca too and find them just as absurd.

Not one of them seems to pass the scratch and sniff test posed by the Epicurean Dilemma:

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?

Why, indeed? Especially since people with transsexualism are born with a stigma that automatically makes us either abominations or requires us to live a life of total denial.
