More wars have been waged and people killed in the name of god(s) and religion than for any other reason in our history. How naive it is to think that any one club has a back-stage pass to eternal bliss in the after-world.

Andy Partridge asked this imposing entity an eternal question,"Did you make mankind after we created you"? John Lennon declared, "I just believe in me". I say, believe in , love and follow who or what you wish, just don't expect me to make a lemming-like leap of faith behind you.
