I Am A Moral Retard


Years ago I had another version of this blog by the same title and I had comes across an article by Timothy Shortell titled, ‘Religion & Morality: A Contradiction Explained’.

In this article Mr. Shortell wrote the following:

On a personal level, religiosity is merely annoying—like bad taste. This immaturity represents a significant social problem, however, because religious adherents fail to recognize their limitations. So, in the name of their faith, these moral retards are running around pointing fingers and doing real harm to others. One only has to read the newspaper to see the results of their handiwork. They discriminate, exclude and belittle. They make a virtue of closed-mindedness and virulent ignorance. They are an ugly, violent lot.

Considering the sheer ignorance of Mr. Shortell I took the title ‘moral retard’ as a badge of honor in that clearly what he considers to be moral is not what I know to be moral.

So I had at the time made the above icon for the sidebar of my WP powered blog and invited others to make use of it as well.

I just noticed tonight that there are still blogs using the icon.
I had actually forgotten all about it.

At the time I made this icon I hosted my own blog, right now I am using one of the free blog services and this particular services does not allow me to edit my sidebars and so I am unable to place this icon on my sidebar.

Just one more reason to host my own blog again.
Maybe soon.
