The Religious Mafia
by Jan Oscar Hansen
Bookmark and Share
  There was a great tragedy in a small town, many children killed
and there was great sorrow. Then the Jesus brigade descended
telling shocked and grieving parents to pray…for what? And hope,
hope for what? These men, in suits and moist handshakes,
Hugging everyone… and talking nonsense about God´s forgiveness
and everlasting love. If that was the case, what is the forgiving for?

The pastors are telling people what god or his son wants, how do they
know, do they
have a direct contact with the creator?
No, of course not, they are blinding the parents with prattle, asking
them to donate to their church, naturally, so they can all be saved.
It is all about money, financial gains, these people are worse than
automatic guns, which they, no doubt, endorse it is what god wants.
No?

Comments on this Poem

Comment Religion is a system of dogmas and creeds that eventually enslave the mind. Thinking and intellect gets bottlenecked due to this and man keeps repeating the same crap, doing same things, living same mistakes, thereby staying in the trap. Mafia is the correct contemporary name for religion.

Comment Organised religion mostly is no good.
Still people cling to one religious group
or the other.

Men and women want child.
Why?
So that when they are no more
they leave something of them.

Fmiliies unite in groups.
Easiest and the best
is the religious group.

But any system tends to be corrupt.
So are religious groups.
So is all the strifes.
What can you do, Mr. Hansen?

Individual religion can be bad too.
So, what will you choose?
Individual religion,or
you will fall back on some organised religion?

One lady office coleague told me once
she needs a shoulder to cry
once a while,
in spite of the fact that she had a husband.

All said and done,
religion is like a shoulder
to unburden.
