Creed of The Pluralist

This poem does a real good job of showing the antithetical irony/absurdity and contradictory nature of pluralism's belief system or that of a Naturalist. Absurd and self-contradicting. Prone to emotion, not thought. Prone to reactionary cravenness and depravity or man's nature. Sinful. Everything is okay unless it insults a pluralist's sensibilities. Then it is not okay. Everyone's opinion is okay unless it infringes on them or what they think is the moral standard...then it is not okay. They do not have a biblical worldview so to them the Bible is unacceptable. You're backwards and uneducated if you do not believe the things they believe. To disagree with a pluralist's view is to be labeled intolerant. Actually, I believe they call you an "Intolerant Bible-thumping Hick" if you are Christian. The irony of this is that most of  the Bible-thumpin' hicks I know could logically think these intellectual arrogants under the table and make them look foolish. Unfortunately, mass media controls what people see and mass media idolizes the ignorant. "In a country of the blind, one-eyed men are kings". In our case the ones that control the dial control the minds of the masses. The very nature of a pluraist's worldview is contradictory and self-defeating. They violate the Law of Non-Contradiction. People call these mindsets liberal or Democrat but the reality is that there are many borderline Republicans and Independents that have the same philosophy. It is pluralism, plan and simple. It is insanity.

Creed

by Steve Turner

We believe in Marxfreudanddarwin
We believe everything is OK
as long as you don't hurt anyone
to the best of your definition of hurt,
and to the best of your knowledge.

We believe in sex before, during, and
after marriage.
We believe in the therapy of sin.
We believe that adultery is fun.
We believe that sodomy’s OK.
We believe that taboos are taboo.

We believe that everything's getting better
despite evidence to the contrary.
The evidence must be investigated
And you can prove anything with evidence.

We believe there's something in horoscopes
UFO's and bent spoons.
Jesus was a good man just like Buddha,
Mohammed, and ourselves.
He was a good moral teacher though we think
His good morals were bad.

We believe that all religions are basically the same-
at least the one that we read was.
They all believe in love and goodness.
They only differ on matters of creation,
sin, heaven, hell, God, and salvation.

We believe that after death comes the Nothing
Because when you ask the dead what happens
they say nothing.
If death is not the end, if the dead have lied, then its
compulsory heaven for all
excepting perhaps
Hitler, Stalin, and Genghis Kahn

We believe in Masters and Johnson
What's selected is average.
What's average is normal.
What's normal is good.

We believe in total disarmament.
We believe there are direct links between warfare and
bloodshed.
Americans should beat their guns into tractors .
And the Russians would be sure to follow.

We believe that man is essentially good.
It's only his behavior that lets him down.
This is the fault of society.
Society is the fault of conditions.
Conditions are the fault of society.

We believe that each man must find the truth that
is right for him.
Reality will adapt accordingly.
The universe will readjust.
History will alter.
We believe that there is no absolute truth
excepting the truth
that there is no absolute truth.

We believe in the rejection of creeds,
And the flowering of individual thought.

If chance be
the Father of all flesh,
disaster is his rainbow in the sky
and when you hear

State of Emergency!
Sniper Kills Ten!
Troops on Rampage!
Whites go Looting!
Bomb Blasts School!
It is but the sound of man
worshipping his maker.

Steve Turner, (English journalist), "Creed," his satirical poem on the modern mind. Taken from Ravi Zacharias’ book Can Man live Without God? Pages 42-44
