"Keep Your Jesus Off My Penis"

One of the things that annoys me about the True Believers (tm) is their insistence that any criticism of their religion (fuck the other ones) is somehow an attack, even when it's a legitimate criticism. "How can you be so cruel as to say that religion may not be the best thing to ever happen to humanity?" they wail and cry, gnashing their teeth for theatrical effect. Instead of taking a critical look at their religion (both the tenets of their faith AND the history of their respective institutions) they just piss and moan about always being under attack by the moral degenerates who don't agree with their particular brand of superstition. All the while, they remain blissfully ignorant of the real reason they piss a lot of people off.

If you are a True Believer (tm), I'd like you to lean in closer and read the following very carefully. I'm about to lay some wisdom on you. Take this information to heart, and you may no longer get the eye-roll from many of the people that you talk to. This could lead to a much healthier social life that expands beyond your fellow Sunday morning faith warriors. Get ready, here it comes:

Some people aren't interested in your god.

There it is. Now go ye forth and cease to annoy.

BTW, check this little ditty out. I think it sums up pretty well how most people feel about the True Believers (tm) and their insistence that everyone else play by their rules. (First time I've tried to embed a YouTube. Hope it works.)

**Disclaimer: Many religious people are perfectly content to keep their religion to themselves and go about their business without being an annoyance (as far as religion goes, anyway.) If you are one of this seemingly vast, silent majority, I'm not talking about you. You're fine, go forth and leave me the fuck alone.

Bravo my dear...and dare I say it....


I hope all is well with you - enjoy your break from your studies and very happy Solstice and wonderful New Year to you and your loved ones.

As ever,

Master Plan said... many "True Believers" have you met? Personally? How much have you talked with them about their entire world view, not just their religion?

How old are they? How old are you?

Why do you care so much? That is, to what degree are you being oppressed by them, how much do they effect your life daily? And then how much rent-free space are you *giving* to them by giving such a fuck about their issues?

You seem like an internet type, you've heard of furries I suspect. How much do you spend time complaining about their irritating attention whoring and thinking about how dumb and stupid they are?

Not much? Why? Because that would be dumb, right?

Same\same here. There are lots of douchetards in the world. Bigots. Racists. Haters. Judgmental fat nerds on the internet to play WoW for hours but dis on LARPers as being "nerds". Chubby types to post on fitness boards about how serious personal trainers don't know what they are talking about. And...jesus, have you looked at any of those political "discussion" boards recently? ZOMGWTFBBQ!!! Idiots!

So...why care? Does it make you happier? Or angrier? Does it elevate your mind? Or does it reduce you back to their level?

Unlike women, men do not readily discuss personal medical conditions and disorders with their friends. It is for this reason that pearly penile papules are very misunderstood.

It is not surprising that you would be plagued by worry and paranoia at the appearance of a bump on the rim of your penis. Immediately you would suspect venereal disease or even worse, cancer. The likelihood is that you do not have either, but rather a simple case of pearly penile papules. Pearly penile papules are very common among men, especially uncircumcised men. They are not as a result of bad hygiene and are not contagious in any way whatsoever. Many men actually find that they appear and disappear without any treatment at all.

However, if you are feeling uncomfortable with them, they can be effectively removed with a simple treatment of radiofrequency surgery. You should however consult your doctor and have them seen to should they emit a discharge or are physically painful.
