8 Reasons why “I AM BLESSED” is a grossly immoral statement

starvingchildFeeling awed and grateful for the good things in one’s life is entirely appropriate.
But for one to say he “is blessed” is fundamentally despicable:

1. You are claiming an all-powerful God LITERALLY interceded in your personal life to grant you a special gift.

2. You are claiming the same God gave you this special gift as he simultaneously and LITERALLY DENIED IT to all the children who died of bone cancer this week – while also denying such a gift to their grieving parents, friends, grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles and extended loved ones.

3. Further, you accepted this grossly unfair gift without objection to the cruel God who so absurdly handed it out to someone so un-needing as you who does not suffer from bone cancer.

4. And further you accepted it knowing others are unfairly, needlessly denied.

5. And furthermore, you are approving of it.

6. And furthermore you broadcast your approval of this unfair gift as if it were a virtue to do so.

7. And further, you dare to be offended when such heartbreaking favoritism should be challenged.

8. And further, if your God has truly handed you with this undeserved gift while denying it to the more deserving, you are knowingly and willfully worshipping a cruel, tinkering, capricious bastard simply because he conveniently favors you over other people.

To say, “I AM BLESSED” is to thank an immoral monster for sparing you while fully understanding others are in line to suffer while they hear you celebrating.

“I am Blessed” means,
“SCREW you, God saved me
because he likes me better than you!”

This is another example of religion being surprisingly despicable
even as it tries to be positive.
