Once again, Christians are preparing to celebrate the torture and murder of Jesus and thank him for submitting to this blood sacrifice. I, for one, find this event and its religious meaning heinous in its entirety.
The idea that a father would torture and murder his own son because the neighbors kids misbehaved is deplorable.
The idea that someone who has committed a crime against me is now forgiven by a third party. I am a forgiving, easy going person and I reserve that right to myself. To hell what some mythical scapegoat has to say about it.
Believing that a murder victim rose from the dead asks of me to be a gullible fool. Believing he flew up into the clouds is silly.
Then, the closing act of the Christian narrative will have this celestial zombie returning with a vengeance. All of the hard earned accomplishments of humanity destroyed. All suffering death except "true" Christians. Then the establishment of a necrocracy. One in which the only requirement of what is left of humanity will be to worship their king without ceasing. This is the apocalypse story I grew up with. Silly predictions about getting microchip implants or tattoos with the number 666. Silly tales like the "Left Behind" book series.
Perhaps I am cynical, but for sheer horror show imagery this fairy tale beats anything the Brothers Grimm or Stephen King dreamed up.
You Christians can celebrate your favorite horror fiction. I, for one, will be celebrating springtime this April Fools Day. Blooming trees, songbirds, Irises.
