And speaking of God…

I’m a big fan of NPR… beyond the drone of bailouts and politics, there’s always something interesting. Since I’m on a religious roll, I’m fascinated with their five part series Your Brain on God.  The science of spirituality-very thought provoking, indeed.

Google up “Religious Advertising” and you get 153,000,000 hits…no surprise. It’s BIG business, this converting and saving.  There’s no money to be made in just doing good.  Organized religion evidently believes people can’t be good without their “help”.  And in order to save us, they need lots of your money and your compliance as part of their group. There are sites like sermonspice.com and buyfromachristian.com to help the cause. There will be no end to this, of course, as history has shown religion to be such a powerful force that pious folks have killed, scammed, cheated, lied, stole, and committed every other sin in the name of their particular faith. Ironic, isn’t it?

imagesNow, Google up “Religious Advertising Agencies” and you get 19, 300,00 hits. 

I’ll bet some of them are hiring.

    I’ll bet some of them are hiring, but probably not a devout atheist. That’s not to say I’m against religion or spirituality. To the contrary, some dear friends have also been ministers and rabbis. I just can’t imagine an agency that self-identifies as religious would be open to honest, open creative dialogue. Particularly from someone who has this song playing in their head all the time.

    There’s a saying I like: Religious people frighten me. Spiritual people inspire me.
