So let me get this straight ~

An organization called Invisible Children was founded by three white, middle-class, christian (of course), college kids from America who were hellbent on saving Africa from the terrors of Joseph Kony, a crazy man who kidnaps children and turns them into child soldiers.

And Invisible Children has actually convinced The United States Government to send military advisors to train Ugandans to fight Kony’s army, which actually means that The United States Military is training parents to kill their own children.

(Did somebody forget what happened to the children Kony kidnapped and turned into soldiers?)

And all this is happening because three white, middle-class, christian (what else?), college kids from America wanted to save the world.

Great.  That’s just great.

Perfect example — and one of many, I might add — of why I’m not a christian anymore

Only a hypocrite would preach,
“Remember the War!” —

while ignoring the senseless
and systemic slaughter

of her neighbors
by the police.

How did I
get here?

How did it
come to this?

Lost faith.
Lost friends.

Lost soul.
Lost god.

The Devil
never beat me

in the prison
of tragedy,

but sent
his children

to kill me —
the ones who thought

they were doing
god’s work.

Those snakes and
sons of vipers

poisoned me
under the guise

of it being
for my own good.

They thought they
were doing

the right thing,
but they

couldn’t have been
more wrong.

And I would
rather

burn in Hell
for all eternity

than live lies
in Paradise.

My grandparents
were married
for over sixty years.

They never
saw a therapist,
never consulted

a psychiatrist,
and certainly
never read

a damned
self-help book —
but, they did

Love each other.

An insecure woman
may make
a man miserable,

but an angry woman
makes everybody
absolutely miserable.

Rock ‘n’ roll
teaches people
that they have problems.

Blues teaches people
how to deal with
their problems.

And christian music
teaches people to ignore
their problems.

But Soul, Soul, Sweet Soul
will teach you
how to have a life.

And the greatest Jazz
will give you
something to celebrate.

A relationship is what happens
when two people no longer love each —

And instead of living,
a man and a woman

waste their life
analyzing it.

Art is the bane of psychology.

And psychology is the bane of life and love.
