A Super Colossal Post

Although I was brought up Catholic, I have a laundry list of problems with organized religion.  It seems every faith, including the one I was raised with, always has some kind of bullet-point that manages to ostracize a group of people while simultaneously contradicting itself.  And whether you believe in a God or not, I think we can all agree that religious extremists, even when they come from faiths rooted in good morals, really only divide people further apart.  And if I’m not mistaken, Isn’t God supposed to bring people together?

Sorry to get all serious and whatnot, but what it boils down to is this: man created religion.  And like most things man creates, it is flawed.  And since it is flawed, it is open to scrutiny.  And since it is open to scrutiny, I get to make fun of it.  And what is my favorite religion to make fun of…

Scientology.

Oh what fun it is to insult a “legitimate” belief structure conceived by a science fiction writer in the 1950’s.  You know, I’ve only played in one band in my life, but both our name and logo were derived from the workings of that good ol’ nutjob L. Ron Hubbard.  Seriously, if the Polyphonic Spree & the Detroit Lions joined forces and established themselves as a religion, it still wouldn’t be as entertaining to make fun of as the Church of Scientology.  I only wish that I could actually sit through Battlefield Earth and learn more about Xenu & The Galactic Confederacy so that I could spew verbal abuse about Dianetics that much more effectively.

Perhaps you’re wondering, “Where the hell is this coming from all of a sudden?”  Well, I happened to be on MC Lars’s website tonight and stumbled upon this video. So without further ado I present “Scientology=WTF?”
