Organized, Distorted Doctrine

1 Aug

The title of this poem was inspired by the host of Occult Science Radio, Curtis “The Illuminated One” Davis. I hear him say that people do crazy things when following an organized, distorted doctrine. What a cool way to sum it up! So, his phrase inspired me to write a poem about how religion can be skewed to jusitfy economic and political interests.

I am not saying that any particular religion is bad. I’m just showing how it can be used at time to manipulate people and to justify certain behavior.

The “dark side” of religion is explored here. I hope that you enjoy this poem and commit to being a vanguard against those who use religion to justify the inhumane treatment and/or slaughter of other human beings.

This poem is a series of 32 haiku poems that are strung together in a series to tell a story. I call this style that I created a haiku chain poem. According to Dictionary.com, a haiku is a major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons, often on the subject of nature or one of the seasons; or a poem written in this form.

Religion alone
in not necessarily
a bad thing. Really.

What makes it bad at
times is how misguided or
evil men use it.

Judaism is
first. Christianity came
next. Then Islam, third.

This is not order
of preference, but it is
chronological.

Unfair advantage,
jealousy and sheer contempt
and chauvinism.

All wrapped in greed, hate,
lust for power, control, and
White Supremacy.

The Chosen People.
This land is our land given
to us by Balfour.

Palestinian
Arabs, you have to go now.
We’re here now. That’s that.

The Torah says that
the land of Israel is
our inheritance.

That is what we say
and stand by. And so what we
are Thirteenth Tribe?

The Invention of
the Jewish People
blew the
whistle. Cover blown!

Once everyone learns
that this is political,
not spiritual – Well…

Everyone will know
the truth, but will the truth free
the land? We’ll see.

Accept HIM as your
lord and savior! He saves you
from yourself. Your sins.

We’re his disciples
on Earth. Saving souls in the
sweet name of Jesus.

He is merciful
to his flock, but if you’re not
of us, you are lost.

Abandon your ways.
There is only one way. If
not, death is certain.

Bow down and kneel at
the cross. Heretics will be
cast out, stoned, or burnt.

We look like GOD, so
listen to us. Obey. A
servant among us.

Without our ways
your soul is lost, but now it’s
found. Convert and live.

Sharia is the
law by which you should live. If
you do not, you’re damned.

Burning in the fire
of Hell for eternity.
Ask for forgiveness.

But you must whisper
your prayer in Arabic or
GOD may not answer.

We hold fast to the
laws of sharia even
though it set us back.

Fundamentalism
retarded our progress and
we lost our great lead.

We set off the spark
in Europe to ignite the
Renaissance. Lights on!

They were in the dark
ages. No rule of law. Pure
barbaric lifestyle.

What kind of god would
pick favorites above all
other nations? Huh?

Sanctioning wholesale
slaughter of innocent people
and seizure of land.

Is not it quite odd
that so-called holy people
do unholy things?

Hypocrites. Liars.
Imposters. Hate mongers and
male chauvinist pigs.

Strange ways, practices
and beliefs. O-D-D means
organized, distorted doctrine.

Ben Netanyahu

6 Jul

I am very disappointed to hear news that the only “democracy” in the Middle East, Israel, is behaving like South Africa under legalized apartheid or even Nazi Germany. Shame on Israel!

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has described African migrants in Israel as “illegal infiltrators” that threaten “our existence as a Jewish and democratic state.” Knesset member Miri Regev, a member of Netanyahu’s Likud party, described refugees as “a cancer in our body” while addressing a mass rally that would shortly devolve into a riot targeting an African neighborhood in Tel Aviv. (“Israeli Racism Against Africans Proves Israel Is Not a Democracy”).

Write letters to your congressmen and your senators about this. Spread the word to churches that feel that they must go to visit the Holy Land in Jerusalem. Go to other holy sites instead until Israel gets its act together.

THIS IS NOT A CATEGORICAL INDICTMENT OF JEWISH PEOPLE!

I’m actually counting on Jewish folks like best-selling author Shlomo Sand to speak out against wrongs being done against people in Israel.

This poem is written in what I call a Haiku Chain. There are 16 haiku poems strung together to create this poem.

Please learn from this and take action.

The news reports say
that Africans are being
deported in droves.

You said you have to
to keep the “identity”
of Israel safe.

Sudanese who came
to your country are being
labeled as rapists.

Why would you dare say
such an inflammatory
thing? Riots began.

Beta Israel
from Ethiopia has
warned us about this.

How they face daily
discrimination in schools
and in housing.

I live in the good,
‘ol U.S.A. so why do
I bother to care?

Well, Israel is
the top recipient of
U.S. foriegn aid.

My tax dollars
are being used to oppress
people of color.

That is not how I
want my money spent. Has Ben
forgotten his past?

How Nazis spread lies
about Jews and made public
speeches full of hate?

How his people were
cast out of Germany to
protect its culture?

“Never forget the
Holocaust!” Agreed. We must
remember this crime.

Has the Israeli
leader forgotten? It seems
to have slipped his mind.

Your behavior is
disappointing and disgusts
me. Shame on you, sir!

Stop the race-baiting.
People may get hurt. Chill out,
Ben Netanyahu.
