We have religion staring right in your face today, in the pages of the media, imposing but claiming not to be imposing, on the values and way of life of non believers. Many are claiming to be on high moral grounds to talk down on people, people who have nothing to do with their religion, will not subscribe to their beliefs or values, that the non believers are bad people of low morals.
How many of these people are morally that virtuous behind their robes when the truth is revealed, just like the revelation of John Paul and his relations with a woman and all the hidden excesses by people in the robes of all religions?
Common, give Madonna a break. Give the non believers a break. The MDA has rightly classified the show as R18. What more do you want? You want to run the lives of the non believers as well? Just keep to your flocks within the confines of your religious abodes and doctrines. Leave the rest of the people alone to do what they want with their lives. This is the 21st Century, no more prudes and pricks, no more pretensions of what is good for one and is so good for everyone. No more living the lives of people of the past. The universe has more than a few hundred billion galaxies out there.
Madonna is lucky and safe that she is living in the 21st Century. In the ignorant Middle Ages she would be stoned to death or burnt at the stake, and called a witch. Are we going to return to those dark ages of human ignorance and to allow the bigots to take charge and run amok?
No one, not any religion shall be allowed to impose their beliefs and values on anyone outside their religions and beliefs. Keep religion as a personal and private affair from the secular state. The secular state and rule of law must prevail. It is a very dangerous precedent to set to allow any religion to think they can dictate their wills, beliefs and values on the non believers, the modern men and women.
As a modern state with so many different religions and beliefs, we cannot slip backward to the medieval times of devils and witches and allowing the mob to go into a rampage to hang or burn people that did not agree with their beliefs, values and way of life.
