this nucleus of sweet christian craziness

sought after from 1096 onwards

with 60,000 strong leading the

kill-everyone-in-its-path-if-they-don’t-worship-the-same-character-of-fiction-that-we-do

campaign

stands tall within the canon of idiotic reasons that

humans have killed each other.

 

one has to wonder that if the devious concoctors of

the work of fiction known as the

new testament

had penned “mr. christ’s” death somewhere a little less sweltering

than the dry heat of jerusalem---

if the whole story would have been different.

 

think about it

what if the character of christ had been written about in the context of

siberia or perhaps the nether-regions of antartica?

certainly the freezing cold may have calmed down the

fanaticism to

follow?

 

those who will tell us that these lands had not even been

“discovered” yet

so they wouldn’t have suited the writer’s of said work of fiction---

well, i suppose that they walk around everyday, somehow,

on one leg---

because the other leg, bent upward,

always has the extended foot

shoved in the mouth of said believer. 

 

an estimated 30,000 people were killed in the first crusade

alone---

muslims

jews

& even other christians,

died

because people who read a book

told the majority of people who couldn’t even read that book,

that there was sufficient reason to take up arms & go

marauding over water & land

to kill others

because they did not abide by the fiction which this book

“delivered.”

 

it is now 2011

& have the crusades stopped?

 

just how “holy” is this jerusalem?

 

just because it is the centerpiece of 3 cults of

fiction,

does not make it anymore significant a land mass

than that of

st. petersburg,

where a much

much

much

better writer

wrote the brothers karamazov.

 

but have no fear,

these itty-bitty revelations will not keep us brilliant apes

from continuing to club each other over the heads

until our brains splash out in the blessed

desert.

 

keep beating, keep thumping those clubs now,

until you get your precious little

armageddon.

Ramen is just a good way to express 'amen' for those who subscribe to the cult of the noodley appendages.
