Angels Are Creepy
It's true. I find angels, angel representations to be creepy. Exorcist creepy. Ten foot cockroach creepy.
People blather on about how sweet angels are, how angels are guardians, how angels watch over them.
The truth is that if you are truly religious, you know that a large sect of angels are soldiers who don't like humans very much. Hence the whole fallen angel thing.
Angels in religious folklore smited the great diety's enemies, destroyed cities and lived their life with a sword in hand and one wing dipped in blood.
They are not the sweet, chubby angels from 'It's a Wonderful Life'. They are Lucifer without the sex life.
They are soldiers without free will. They serve and do as they are ordered. Humans were gifted with freewill. They don't like us much.
It makes me glad that I am not by definition a religious person. I believe there is something bigger than myself at work in the world, I just don't know what it is or if it is organized.
I don't believe in churches, religion or hatred by doctrine.
But if there were angels in the world, they'd scare me shitless because those things are not human. They are beautiful monsters who wait only to be directed to destroy us.
Just a thought
