All interferers are created equal and should be treated as such. It does not matter who interferes with whom and for what purpose: they are all the Devil’s creatures. The only exception, complicated as it may be at times, are those who interfere with interferers, to stop these from interfering in the lives of others or to protect ourselves against them.
The tolerance of interferers (“inter-fearers”) is completely unacceptable. To claim that adherents to this or that religion should be granted the “religious freedom” to take away the freedom of other people is complete and utter nonsense, as well as one of the most dangerous inventions of our attempts to become civilized.
One does not have to reserve a special place for the foaming-at-the-mouth Islamic mad dogs all over the globe, these days. The Christian Bible has always given plenty of disease ridden, rabies-infecting substance to support similar disregard for the dignity of “God’s creatures”, i.e. for persons so complete in themselves that they should be respected as having been formed in God’s or Allah’s or Dionysus’ etc. image. One does not interfere with perfection without insulting the creator.
But then there are texts such as Psalm 2, 8-9: “Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, And the very ends of the earth as Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron, You shall shatter them like earthenware.” And we complain about what the crazies are doing in the Middle East again? The gods are said to create beautiful earthenware, and then throw a mad fit, dashing it all to pieces. No regard, of course, for the dignity of “the children of god.” The gods, like sharks are known to devour their own children.
Why are perfectly peaceful people, filled with respect for the uniqueness of each individual person, so ready to pronounce with all the political correctness they can fake: “Not all Muslims, not all Christians, not all… are interferers,” when all of these religions are sanctimoniously pronouncing, like the Devil, that they have the right, nay the duty, to interfere in the lives of others.
It does remind one of the high percentage of abused children, children that have been interfered with, who then become abusers themselves, not only of their children, but of spouses and of as many of their fellow human beings as they can get their twisted minds and hands on. Should we not be thankful that the priests that have been known to interfere with children did at least not dash them to pieces, like their lord. If they had true religion, they would have killed and tortured them in the grand style of the current “ISIS” faithful.
In the light of “and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance” one does wonder if Putin is deep down a religious man – but then there has never been that much of a difference between religion and communism, etc., when it comes to inter-fearing in the lives of others.
The answer is simple: containment. Anyone who claims the right to interfere in the lives of others should be excluded from the community of human beings, like a mad dog.
In practice, however, this simple solution would imply that we isolate, refuse contact with all kinds of so-called human beings: not just the “Faithful” of religion, but even capitalists who rob others of the chance to lead a normal life, teachers who force children into “Attention Deficit Disorder” by inter-fearing into them the requirement to sit still, therapists who “cure” this disorder, food producers who make us sick, even those noisy people out there on the street who have no regard for the peace of others, polluters of the environment… the list could be endless. But we could make a start, as we got a fairly good start on Demons.
We used to attribute madness to being possessed by the demons of religion. Then we ascended into the more tolerant heavens of psychotherapy and declared madness an illness. The time has come to acknowledge that being a screwball or weirdo or streaker or someone who shows their face openly, etc., is no cause for interfering in the lives of these individuals, that the only true sickness is all that which drives us to interfere in the lives of others, like rabies or religion.
