Zappadan Day 15: Notes on Religion

"Children are naïve -- they trust everyone. School is bad enough, but, if you put a child anywhere in the vicinity of a church, you're asking for trouble."

"The whole foundation of Christianity is based on the idea that intellectualism is the work of the Devil. Remember the apple on the tree? Okay, it was the Tree of Knowledge. "You eat this apple, you're going to be as smart as God. We can't have that."

  1. Note that while FZ ranted against religious fundamentalists, he was an equal-opportunity scoffer, disliking the Jerry Falwell types, corrupt catholics AS WELL AS orthodox jews. You don't see that too often now: it's easy enough to ridicule Rev. Hagees (and they should be ridiculed), or jihadists, but few secular liberals will also diss say the caveman rituals of orthodox judaism (including that farce known as chaunakkuh, which dates from some nasty business a few years after Alexander the great). And AIPAC's made up of orthodox jews.

    With garlic aroma, that could level tacoma...
