Jesus was a hacker



Having to stand up for a belief in God these days is increasingly difficult due to many factors that are justifiable and unfortunate. It is ironic that there are like minded people as me that believe in freedom, however are unwilling to accept that a religious belief is an acceptable extension of that freedom, and would slander or deny those that have a differing viewpoint without qualifying there argument, blindly accepting that Fanatical right wing fascists, calling themselves christians, are able to speak on behalf of God.

I am personally vehemently against the current paradigm of fascism, and the use of religion to further these goals. On those grounds, I despise most claims of christianity. Many, many examples exist, that destroy the good teachings of Christ. From the obvious i.e. televangelism marketing schemes, from the not so obvious, i.e. polotics from the pulpit clothed as Gods word but deceptively conveing poison.

Be reminded that the words of Christ were based on Love, and he said again and again, in action, in parable, to love your nieghbor. He didnt say to make a big marketing scheme to profit off religion, as a matter of fact, he was bruttaly tortured and murdered for standing up against that very establishment.

Dedication. Jesus was a hacker...

whenever he was presented with an impossible problem, be it lack of wine at a party, feeding huge crowds, diplomacy, survelience, dissemination of information, he never backed away from the task. Whether or not you chose to believe in miracles, lets say for instance you dont, the fact that a public record of a person lasting 2000 years should lend credibility that he was someone who thought outside the box. The stories they chose to relay about his life, showed him hanging out with criminals, political activists, hookers, disenters, excomunicates, outlaws, thieves, and law abiding people as well.

Being Catholic doesnt mean I have to agree with everyone else that is Catholic. St Francis of Asisi, as well as Mother Terresa both are great examples of the kind of people that lived out there lives in the spirit of charity, not exploitation.
