To what extent shall secularism be embraced?

Serious theological, philosophical and ideological question.

No man is purely selfless; but any man can be purely selfish.


so much potential why would I ever limit myself to one avenue? just for my pride’s sake, to prove I am “the best”? there is only One Best and I would rather use my skills righteously, justly, and purposefully. this is my theology. 


All our skills are different. We are all different. We all need each other. 

Republican — The Guise of Being ‘More’ American


Republicans have lost their battle for social dominance. The American people have become too liberal. Now, the only thing the conservative lobby has left to hold on to is this propagandized idea that the Republican Party is more free-market oriented than the Democrats, and that anything outside the realm of Republicanomics is either socialist, Nazi, or Islamist.

Chill…okay?

First of all, dear conservatives, you can’t try to control people’s social lives and call yourself a free-marketeer. That is just bullshit. We all know what happens in the end. Eventually, social-control leads to the abuse of power, and then to the end of freedom altogether, including free enterprise. Saudi Arabia is a perfect example of this — private enterprise mixed with theocracy.

Second of all, you Republicans tote this idea of being more supportive of American enterprise, yet, I hear things like Mitt Romney putting his money in Swiss Bank Accounts. And this was the 2012 Republican Presidential Nominee. Not to mention Sarah Palin, whose entire career is financially supported by ignorant conservative soccer moms who have nothing better to do than idolize an imaginary type of existence — conservatism.

What does it mean to be conservative?

Celibate?

Do you not have bad thoughts?

Do you only work 24 hours a day with a 20 second break?

Do you never stop breathing while you are at work busting your ass earning all that money you inherited from mama and papa?

Does it mean you attend church more regularly?

Does it mean you never drink, never smoke, never think of sex?

Does it mean you support extremes that don’t exist just so that you can justify your maliciousness?

I think so.

Republicanism and conservatism is a disease of the mind fueled by millenniums of fear driven politics and traditions. It all has to do with the individual’s fear of what he is or is not allowed to do in the eyes of God as well as the individual’s potential desire to try to defy God so as to appear greater than Nature and ultimately, to avoid social equality.

That’s what I think.

Immigration and Obama


I would like to start this off by saying I LOVE OBAMA. Everything he has done up till now has confirmed my initial belief that this man is driven by his spirituality. I love this guy and everything he has done and continues to do to improve and fix this great American nation.

He’s planning on ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, he helped oust Gaddafi the maniac, and while Egypt is a mess I think he will eventually criticize any attempts by the current Egyptian president to undermine secular values if need be. This is, of course, assuming that conservative attempts to counter this effort do not succeed in the slightest way, as they did in pretty much bringing about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to begin with.

As for immigration, I must say, as a first generation immigrant to America, that Obama’s approach as well as Congress’ decision to unite on this issue is humbling. It brought me tears of joy, if only you could imagine. Immigration is a sensitive topic for me, and I can only pray for myself, and the millions of people out there in America struggling to make a living because they are hopeless about any possibility of achieving an ordinary, human, dignified status. 

I pray for all the immigrants in this country as well as all the pious individuals who’s lives are undermined by bad laws, bad policies, and injustice. May the future bring justice for us all. 

God bless.
