Religion is like a blind man looking in a black room for a black cat that isn’t there, and finding it.

  1. Dude! Oscar Wilde became a believer ! Read his ballad of Redding Jail. He said this quote and later had all his sins ,bisexual sins and all others, forgiven by placing his faith in Christ’s shed blood on the cross.

      This is exactly why religious people seeking converts are widely and correctly viewed as vultures, preying on the weak and sick. Throughout his life, OW was interested in but never an admirer of religious faith and its many expressions. That he was ‘converted’ while in prison by the very institution that empowered his behaviour to be ‘criminalized’ in the first place demonstrates an early example of Stockholm Syndrome and does not refute in any way his point made in the above quote.

      • Oh, but on his death bed he asked his bisexual partner, Robby Ross,”did you ever love any of those boys for their own sake ?” The reply was ,”no”, “Neither did I said OW, I need a priest, please bring me a priest.”

        And we can trust secondhand reports on dialogue how much? Oh, right: you think the Gospels are sufficient! (I knew a guy who said he knew a guy who once heard about…)

        Don’t forget the poor lad was raised Irish, which is god-soaked in Catholicism. It would have been perfect if, on his deathbed, he had asked for a witch doctor. A lost opportunity to be sure.

      • In “The Ballad of Redding Jail” we learn all we need to know. Oscar Wilde claimed Christ. He had it published anonymously and it was well accepted. Later was it revealed he wrote it.
