The world sucks because of you
Wow, I never knew non belief was responsible for all the world’s problems! That’s according to the mayor of Suwannee, a county in Florida that still enforces prohibition (progressive, no?). He thinks the biggest issue facing the world is the lack of belief in God:
There are those that don’t acknowledge the existence of God. Their souls are in mortal danger of being lost for eternity. These atheists, agnostics or non believers point to the injustices and tribulations that befall man. These are things of man’s doing, not God. The main point is that if people around the world truly had God in their lives, there would not be any of the things that atheists point to in order to discredit a belief in the Almighty. God is caring and loving. He is not a mean God. If people were to turn toward God and not away from Him, there would be a heaven on earth. God bless us all.
Yep, if everyone were to believe in the SAME god, a process that appears to require regular sectarian massacres, and internal inquisitions to discourage the religion from reforming, then the whole world would be a paradise! Except of course for women who are raped and need an abortion, or for people who just can’t seem to believe all of the suffering in the world is really the result of man’s actions and not the cruelty of nature. Except for the terrible ignorance, bigotry and xenophobia that is characteristic of religion, Mayor Fuckface assures us God will make a personal appearance once we’ve stopped praying to the myriad of entities that aren’t quite the right one.
