Diego Rivera: “Religions Are a Form of Collective Neurosis”

“God does not exist”

picture an eminent mural by Diego Rivera, please
Dreams of a Sunday in the Alameda, for instance,
with a sign in the hands of Don Ignacio Ramírez:
“God does not exist”

a public furor ensues
the artist is asked to remove the inscription
he refuses to abide by such demands

the painting goes into a 9-year-long prison
Rivera finally agrees to eliminate
the controversial phrase
but first, he avows his atheist stance
and attests his views on religions:
“a form of collective neurosis”

“God Does Not Exist” is one of my three poem contributions to the May 2021 issue of The Year of the Poet VIII, published by Inner Child Press, AKA Inner Child Press International.

[My apology to you, dear Paulette, for my initial error in the reblogging process.]

With my heartfelt appreciation to The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap and in the hope to mediate her reblogged post A Girl’s Message to all Christians from Elana – The Voice of the Future to Muslims as well, the followers of the religion of Islam and its mind-boggling distortions I believe to know well. Signed: An atheist, or, an agnostic at best.
