The Gods Want Your Body Parts

Religious stupidity seems abundant this week, or perhaps I'm just paying attention. According to Suresh Kumar, or at least the note he wrote after cutting off his tongue to please a Hindu invisible entity, he is, "...a true disciple of the goddess and it is (his) firm belief which has given (him) the strength to offer (his) tongue to her."

So for some reason, people feel it necessary to worship a "goddess" described as follows:
Kali is represented as a Black woman with four arms; in one hand she has a sword, in another the head of the demon she has slain, with the other two she is encouraging her worshippers. For earrings she has two dead bodies and wears a necklace of skulls ; her only clothing is a girdle made of dead men's hands, and her tongue protrudes from her mouth. Her eyes are red, and her face and breasts are besmeared with blood. (from here)

Fuck me that sounds like goddamn Jeffery Dahmer, not something worth mutilating yourself to please. Dead bodies for earrings!? Holy snappin' fuckin' Mary's vag! How do you explain those at a party? Oh, and let's not forget this marvelous little tale of a mother's love:
...the image of kali dancing with Shiva follows closely the myth of the demon Daruka. When Shiva asks his wife Parvati to destroy this demon, she enters Shiva's body and transforms herself from the poison that is stored in his throat. She emerges from Shiva as Kali, ferocious in appearance, and with the help of her flesh eating retinue attacks and defeats the demon. Kali however became so intoxicated by the blood lust of battle that her aroused fury and wild hunger threatened to destroy the whole world. She continued her ferocious rampage until Shiva manifested himself as an infant and lay crying in the midst of the corpse-strewn field. Kali, deceived by Shiva's power of illusion, became calm as she suckled the baby.

Lord fuck a goat, she sounds like the goddess of Rwanda circa 1994. How do you worship a supposed "goddess" when she loses her fuckin' mind and kills enough people to create a "corpse-strewn field"? Think about that for a second: "corpse-strewn". When have you ever seen anything, field or not, that was strewn with corpses? I'm going to say "never". Call me crazy, but I'm SO not crazy compared to this weirdyass douchebag, four-armed, murdering, nutbag asshat.

If you absolutely have to believe in something stupid and unrealistic and retarded, at least try to make sure it's not a creature that murders a ton of people in a frenzied rage and then wears a "girdle of dead men's hands" and bodies for earrings. That's like worshipping Dolph Lundgren in Universal Soldier, for fuck's sake. Try to be a little more fucking selective in your gods, please.

At least Dolph Lundgren is real. Barely.

The Christian god is a bit better. I've never heard of him wearing severed hands as a belt or acrrying around heads. Also, instead of creating his own corpse-strewn fields, most of the time he inspires his followers to do it for him. There was that whole drowning 99.999% of the world's population thing, though.

True enough, eh? Killing pretty much everyone is just about as bad as being a crazy psycho about it. Do you wear it around your waist and off your ears that you're crazy, or do you not give any clues at all? Questions questions....

You gotta admit though, this is a god you want to be on the good side of.

I don't see how it's any less gruesome than imagining water and juice to become actual blood and chunk o' christ when consumed. gag. something very "se7en" about that.
