Watch: Mr. Robot Nails Religion

Watch: Mr. Robot Nails Religion July 21, 2016

Elliott delivers a beautiful anti-religion rant in the latest episode of Mr. Robot.

In an Adderall fueled fugue, and six days of no sleep, Elliot is slipping into what he calls a “fatal error.” The bad trip culminates in a beautiful rant in front of his church therapy group that he meets with weekly in an attempt to maintain/regain his sanity.

When asked by the group facilitator:

Would you like to share? God can help you.

Elliott responds:

Is that what God does? He helps? Tell me, why didn’t God help my innocent friend who died for no reason while the guilty ran free?

Okay. Fine. Forget the one offs. How about the countless wars declared in his name?

Okay. Fine. Let’s skip the random, meaningless murder for a second, shall we? How about the racist, sexist, phobia soup we’ve all been drowning in because of him? And I’m not just talking about Jesus. I’m talking about all organized religion. Exclusive groups created to manage control. A dealer getting people hooked on the drug of hope. His followers, nothing but addicts who want their hit of bullshit to keep their dopamine of ignorance.

Addicts. Afraid to believe the truth. That there’s no order. There’s no power. That all religions are just metastasizing mind worms, meant to divide us so it’s easier to rule us by the charlatans that wanna run us. All we are to them are paying fanboys of their poorly-written sci-fi franchise.

If I don’t listen to my imaginary friend, why the fuck should I listen to yours? People think their worship’s some key to happiness. That’s just how he owns you. Even I’m not crazy enough to believe that distortion of reality. So fuck God. He’s not a good enough scapegoat for me.

That is some fantastic dialog from a highly innovative and enjoyable television program.
