Thoughts on Easter.
Although I was raised Catholic, church on Sundays, altar boy etc etc, I'm no longer religious. I'm not going to make fun of someone's beliefs on this special day for them, that would be thoughtless of me. I will say this however; when you think about the story behind Easter, it's so typically human that it's sickening. A man begins going from town to town claiming he has the true message from god. He asks people to see everyone as an equal, to understand everyone has value and worth. That looking out for one another is a strength that adds to society and is not a weakness. That those in power should use that power to make life better for the people they are in charge of. That people in the religious hierarchy should be the most concerned with this goal and not concerned with worldly possessions. He gave ordinary people hope, he made them feel that someone cared... and so we twisted his words and killed him in the most horrible way possible for those times. Oh humanity, you're such a dick!
