The Twin Towers Of Terror – Never Forget, Never Forgive


Because nine years ago today, two twin winged bullets struck the towers, and the sky became dark with dust and cement and fury, and human beings rained down on the streets below, a bloody rainfall of the rending of flesh and shrieks of terror sickeningly silenced.

These planes were hijacked and driven by highly educated religious fanatics. Men who would sacrifice not only themselves, but any innocents within range, for their cause. This is beyond reason. This is madness.

And only bullies strike at weak targets.

And now, nine years later, we have the accommodationists who want to pass laws to protect the rabid ideology of these hairy-eyed lunatics, protest the common responses as stereotypes, and the religionists are struggling to hold onto their ‘get out of guilt’ free passes.

The more hardened among us, however, see how backwards religious superstition is, how it shelters the lunatic fringe, how it holds us back and claims some sort of ephemeral ‘higher moral ground’.

Remember, remember, the 11th of September.

Never forget, never forgive.

And hope that our children, and their children, will no longer be subservient or chained by the antiquated anachronisms of the past.

To a secular world. May it be forthcoming in the decades to come. Until then, the lesson of 9/11 should always be in the forefront of all minds:

Religion is not trustworthy. It never has been, nor will it ever be. Belief in the afterlife is poison.

Till the next post, then.
