To all of the so-called “spiritual leaders” who are nothing more than puffbag ex used-car salesmen with questionable agendas: Spiritual conviction is no excuse for sloppy intellectualism. It’s too easy to say “because God said so”. Who wrote down what God said? It was found on scrolls in a cave thousands of years ago, translated and re-interpreted countless times to meet the undeniably human motivations of its handlers, used as a tool of social control, and brimming over with fear, violence, and general weirdness that people freely interpret for a willing audience of people who don’t have the inclination to think for themselves. I have a difficult time with that.
