RELIGION IS AN EXERCISE IN HERD MANAGEMENT.
by Maria Al Masani Makienko
Religion is an exercise in herd management. I am a fashion designer who has to herd women. I prefer dealing with religious women as they are less self destructive and therefore less catty and jealous.
Voltaire said that if there is no god He should be invented so his servants don’t steal from him. I don’t think Evangelicalism or Christian Zionism is a religion nor has social utility since it produces “trad-thots” and didn’t Jesus, the founder of Christianity say “judge a tree by its fruits.”
I agree with looking at various branches of religion based on social utility. I can vouch for Christian Orthodoxy, not just because of my husband but the incredible community it produces in Ottawa from Lebanese, to Ukrainian, to Serbian, Moldavian to Ethiopian and Egyptian: the women are feminine kind and beautiful, men are masculine, warm community that helps each other, healthy strong families. You see similar family health in the Muslim community in Ottawa, and again its from sticking to tradition combined with patriarchy instead of emphasizing progress prevents opening a door for parasites to sabotage.
