So Nepal was hit by an earthquake that marked 7.8 in magnitude. That is terrible for the people living there. Given our own earthquake in India, and anywhere in the world, seeing people suffering around the globe during such natural calamities, Yes we feel sad for all the lives lost. But in midst of all these, upon seeing India’s rapid response to save lives and provide relief, it was a good feeling that humanity was not all lost. Yes that was a really good thing they did.
But then comes the jobless religious minded. I read a few times online in the ‘headlines’ that Christians were selling Jesus during this issue, and at first, I did not bother much to think about it, I thought, these were passionate people who loved their god, and were behind the keyboard, instead of being one among the people there helping. Well, that’s what most of us do. When armies and forces are helping out the victims, we sit and tweet, or update facebook statuses. But Then I wondered what did it mean to ‘sell Jesus’ so i opened one of the links.
I was sad what I read. Yes some of them seem concern for the lost Lives.
And some seem compassion for the Suffering.
But then some were downright stupid! Religiously stupid!
I mean feeling sad for the lost souls is one thing, that is good! Feeling sad for the souls, and praying for the souls is something good too. But then Using this incident where almost 4000 lives are lost, with families facing the horrors of the loss and tragedy, calling it a sign for the second coming of christ, That is unbelievable!
My question is, is this only because it is Nepal? If it was any place that had some ‘godly’ event in the Bible, would they be saying the same? If no, then we see the problem here. And if Yes, then these are the ‘Blind Believers’ That i hate the most!
Yes as many people try to convey, the passive religious among the lot, who always tell, Religion gives people Hope. Well read the tweets again, Religion + Keyboard (Or any platform to talk in front of the world) only make you more stupid than you could be without religion. This is not Giving People hope. For all I know, Nepalese people who are suffering right now, dont give a rat’s ass about any of the tweets above, or a lot more like these. But we the Humans, We the Homo Sapiens, Cannot afford to entertain such ‘Devolution’ among our own Kind.
Reading the tweets, I am glad I am not Religious. I am skeptical, rational, and NOT STUPID.
