40 days of Rage of Reason

JC mardi gras

Today is Mardi Gras. Fat Tuesday. The day that people who celebrate Lent let loose because they are about to sacrifice something they love for the next 40 days. Speaking of sacrificing something you love… What is at the end of the 40 days of lent? A celebration of human sacrifice. And not just any human sacrifice, a child sacrifice. And not just any child sacrifice, we are talking about God’s only son. As you know, God made himself a human, he essentially turned himself into his own son, and then he and killed his son (himself) for the sins he created us with. This is a monstrous and preposterous concept. One that I will elucidate and elaborate on for the next 40 days to come. That’s right, I will do my best to write 40 posts in 40 days. Some will be short some will be long. Some will be righteous and some will be just wrong (in that ‘funny cuz it’s true’ sort of way).

For many Christians Lent is a time of giving up something. For me this will be a time of not giving up. Not giving up my right to freedom from religion. Not giving up on my passionate desire to help guilt-ridden people of all denominations break free from the mind-virus that they were infected with as a child. This will be a time of not giving up my critical faculty. Not giving up on my Rage Of Reason.

Don’t get me wrong. I love parties. I love New Orleans and Brazil. I love sexy people shaking their stuff in the streets and having a good time to funky music. My problem is that on a fundamental level the whole thing is based on the shame and guilt of a religion that celebrates child sacrifice as the ultimate expression of God’s love. Fat Tuesday is the day everyone has too good a time on purpose. But it is really just the day before Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. Mardi Gras is the final binge before the 40-day countdown of guilt. Mardi gras is one last bash before the 5 week trudge leading up to the crucifixion you are guilty for. Remember, you are guilty for being born with the Original Sin that God created you with in the first place.

So have a great Mardi Gras everyone. Sin your brains out. Rage. After all Jesus died for your sins so you might as well make sure he died for a good reason. You might as well live it up since god killed himself for you. You might as well just get hammered and raise your eyes to the sky and show Jesus your tits in the hopes that he will throw down his beads of forgiveness and salvation upon you.
