TODAYS SERMON: Fire and Ice! And why Martin Luther King wasn’t…a “liberal”!
By Tom Hanifin at Apr 30, 2008
I personally knew, and loved, and respected Phil Berrigan, a defrocked and excommunicated Catholic priest...for spending decades in prison because he desperately tried to non-violently end war. And I worship the path he laid for us to follow because he was greater than his myth...he was just a simple Man. And it is one of the great misfortunes of my life that I never knew Martin, and Malcolm, and Jesus and Moses and Spartacus and a lot of the other nameless trying to be Messiahs, as well as the G-d forsaken...anonymous messiahs, who have been walking around among us screaming with every breath they take...and exuding from every pore of their body...
"STOP LOOKING AT ME WITH THOSE MINDLESS, STUPID, GA GA EYES LIKE I AM SOME DEITY, YOU MOTHERFUCKING COCKSUCKERS! BECAUSE I AM NOT YOUR DEITY! I AM MADE OF FLESH AND BLOOD AND BONE JUST LIKE YOU ARE! AND IF FOR JUST ONE MOMENT YOU WOULD ONLY STOP QUOTING ME EVERY TIME I FART AND INSTEAD OF FOLLOWING ME...IF YOU WOULD LEAD ME AND LET ME FOLLOW YOU TO THE PROMISED LAND...WE WOULD BE LEGIONS AND THERE REALLY WOULD BE NO STOPPING US!"
The "Big Bang Theory" is HORSESHIT! Creation began with "the whisper" and that led to the scream of "WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON AT THE END OF ALL THIS?" which is more commonly referred to as the "Big Question" but is more commonly abbreviated as the "Big Bang" and that is why evolution is true. The one and only truly inspired word of God can be found everywhere and seen in every heart felt search for truth you can find in any book, letter, scribble, doodle, crayon mark and in the babbling of the profoundly retarded if you have an ear with which to hear them...that is if those truths you are seeking haven't yet been burned...from your wanting to find them...with in your own heart!
All life is precious, but those Gods and Demi-Gods I mentioned at the top of this list, made it even more precious for ALL life by living their entire lives with the courage to die for something as intangible...as a "dream". And others, make life more valuable by having the courage to go on living in spite of lives tormented by agonizing despair and utter hopelessness. After all, it requires a coward of epic proportions to take his own life believing that any god you fear...is worth worshiping, not to mention who would expect the coward to bring, as an offering, the dead corpses and wandering spirits of ANYONE'S children as an entrance ticket...into some magical paradise of LOVE reserved for a "brave" martyr willing to end the life of innocence but lacking the bravery to fight a Force of Madness. However, on the other hand, and because you have the technology, does it require any less cowardice of biblical proportions to go on living a life in which you can safely manage to kill an ever more and increasing number of your fellow species all in order for your own survival to continue...with out ever wondering of what value your own life then becomes?
There is no front line of the WAR! And the only trouble going on in Israel, and Palestine, and China, and India and Tibet, and Iraq, and America and every other seemingly disconnected and bottomless cesspool of Hatred is that you don't know they are all connected and held together...under your own feet by the concept called Earth, which involves, in order to understand what that really means, an unbearable passion called LOVE.
There is nothing at all going on in Washington, DC, or Moscow, or Peking, or Paris or New York City or any of those other so called great seats of power that should impel you to go there en mass at this late stage of the game...unless you happen to be living there. And even then, it wouldn't make any sense to walk blocks all the way to the White House, or some other domicile like that, to protest the back up of the toilet in your own home UNLESS you are already in one of those governmental buildings that belong to all the people and you can start pissing and shitting all over the carpet and desks, as a sign, that you have finally broken into the realms of the sane.
Now, assuming you did finally enter into that abyss of mystery, let's see how well you would do with the bravery that kind of sanity does require. Because does it seriously make any sense to anyone, but the most depraved of COWARDS, to be anything less than OBSESSED with what is the purpose of your own life, instead of pretending an existence of crawling to beg on your knees to one "self proclaimed fuhrer" after another to stop commanding YOU to obey orders has meaning? And probably even worse...to encourage the carnage of the insanity by your cowardly meekness and self depreciation of your own strengths along with muttering under your breath...that you are only one person so what can you do? And then the litany of other variations on that same arsine question you babble of what can one lone individual do to stop funding death factories? What can one isolated human do to stop the exploitation of the masses of the poor? And, among the seemingly infinite number of other hopeless injustices, what can YOU even do to protect all future generations...from the war being waged with depleted uranium against them as well?
Well, ASSHOLE, if you got a whiff of The Sacred Book of Farts, Proverbs: Soixinte-neuf to Cunt-hair-Cock-hair inclusive, that I alluded to at the opening of our unholy discourse today, of YOUR own power to help evil, far more tangible and terrifying than any boogie man Antichrist could bring upon the world, by your own commission of IMPOTENT acts which are utterly devoid of any meaning and have absolutely no validity in reality what so ever...except for the pretentious ones you give them! And if you heard me just then, whispering and accusing you, in the silence of your own soul, that YOU yourself, and YOU alone, are nothing but the worst and most spineless and depraved coward of all who is afraid of nothing...but the Divine Power with in your OWN Heart and Self. And if you can hear me further accusing that it is not someone else...but YOU who idolizes the agony of others if, with that Power, you can look away from their hell for even an instant...then why can you not hear me screaming with every ounce of my being, "PROVE ME WRONG! AND TEAR DOWN THE WALLS, MOTHERFUCKER!"
Now It Is Time For The Inspirational Thoughts Of Today:
So if everyone will please stand until the final act. Andrey is going to speak in heretical Taoist koans and tongues...and if just one of you dip shits do not come up with a more fucked up sura, bordering on a worse psalm, that isn't your own more dangerous Poem...I will make you wish it was Judgment Day!
TODAY'S CLOSING HYMN
"S/He Who Does Not Have An Ideal They Are Willing To Die For Has No LIFE...Worth Living For."
Please pick up, on your way out of from underneath the roof that houses our SMALL and LITTLE congregation of humanity, the very sky above us all...your very own copy of "NONE OF US CAN EVER FORGET, WE WERE ALL THERE...AT THE SCOURGING!"
TOMORROW'S SERMON: Feel free to ask me to give you simple suggestions of what kind of action just one person acting alone can do to totally fuck up HATRED. Because if you dare ask that LIE of a question, I swear to you, I will fuck YOU up so bad then as well...it will be the last time...you ever try to NOT out fuck me!
YESTERDAY'S SERMON: Where were you when the laughter went out of the coven of the witch...because some clever doctor went and sterilized the bitch?
