Welcome to The Clergy Project
Are you a religious professional who no longer
believes in the supernatural?
Have you remained in vocational ministry,
secretly hiding away your non-belief?
Are you struggling over where to go from here
with your life and career?

—to what is an indictment on Freedom. No?
Recent blogscussions led to confirmation of my belief that all is shadow, image, illusion; especially in The Land Of The Free (and anywhere else that claims Truth, Justice, Religion, and Freedom as a way of life).
SO CUT TO THE CHASE
or: does Freedom really work both ways?
You are free to believe in whatever you wish* … which must necessarily include the freedom to hire or fire whomsoever you wish. And if you wish to surround yourself with religion-spouting holey Joes of your own ilk, so be it.
If thou don’t hath that freedom
—thou ain’t free.
Now, going back to the Project—they got it in one with that single all-damning word ‘professional’.
Honesty … I love it! Religion as a career choice, a money-making option; complete with dedicated colleges and universities**. If you’re going to do it, why not go whole hog as a proper professional? Get the quals?
So your ‘call’ (vocation) becomes stripped down to its essence. Every gesture, every word of the more successful Bible sellers is/are coldly dissected and dispassionately analysed, then rebuilt into instructional courses in technique and method. Cold and hard, but ohhhhhh … so professional. Boom boom~! Jesus would indeed be proud, no?
is wordages twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools—and a damned fine living for the true professional.
SO IF YOU’RE MAKING YOUR BUCK
and getting a return on your professional investment… why the hell give it up? I just don’t understand … or (horrors!) did you really (actually) believe all that stuff, once?
Ol’ Satan has sunk His claws into you. Gotta be that … no-one in his right mind kills the golden goose. Eat its eggs, yes (and they make endless damned fine omelettes) but not the goose itself~! That’s stupidity. So it’s Satan, then, it has to be … either that or you are a dupe.
Were a dupe.
Have been duped … and made a living out of duping others. Feel good, now?
I, the Lord your god … am a jealous god …
God is alive and well — and recruiting. Join up! Save souls!
(And a great pension scheme—just don’t expect assistance if you burn out … Go to hell, you bloody turncoat!)
* So long as no-one gets hurt, dammit. (Take note, Christians and Islamics: no more stakes, no more sanctioned rapings, no more sanctioned enslavings, no more holy stonings …)
** And for all I know, a sound pension scheme—possibly with stock options.
