Everyone’s Religion

Overheard from two guys walking past a church on Tuesday

All That

“Everyone’s religion began as noble myth, beautiful poetry, and communal cooperation and kindness. But it ends up as drudgery and petty argumentation among the moral gnomes and other small-thinking people of the planet who are buried in idealized lies and boredom. Nothing left but spitefulness and authoritative ego trips administered by the most witless, unimaginative, bureaucratic, and mundane members of each clan. When they’re not fighting each other, they’re fighting their own sects.”

“All that, huh?” shrugged his friend.

“Yeah, all that,” the first guy grinned.
