Elegia atrasada a um Americano Vociferante

...But in the Bullshit Department, the businessman can't hold a candle to a clergyman.
'Cause I gotta tell ya the truth, folks, when it comes to Bullshit, big time, major league BULLSHIT, you have to stand in awe, in awe, of the all time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims: RELIGION! .... No contest, no contest!!

Life is sacred? Who said so, God?
Hey, if you read history you'll realize that God is one of the leading causes of death...has been for thousands of years. Hindus, Muslims, Christians, Jews, all taking turns killing each other because God told them it was a good idea.
Instead of school busing and prayer in schools, which are both controversial, why not a joint solution? Prayer in buses. Just drive these kids around all day and let them pray their fuckn' empty little heads off.

I've begun worshipping the Sun for a number of reasons.
First of all, unlike some other gods I could mention, I can see the Sun. It's there for me every day.
And the things it brings me are quite apparent all the time: heat, light, food, a lovely day. There's no mystery, no one asks for money, I don't have to dress up, and there's no boring pageantry.
And interestingly enough, I have found that the prayers I offer to the sun and the prayers I formerly offered to God are all answered at about the same 50-percent rate.

A "América" - os Estados Unidos da - perdeu um dos seus grandes Vociferantes. Um dos mais zangados, virulentos, escatológicos e engraçados de sempre.
Foi para mim uma descoberta tardia, mas altamente compensadora!
Vai deixar saudades.
